To mark a momentous return, indie-alternative club night Supersonic Vague are upping the ante even further by bringing clubbers the biggest name in dub-step Chase & Status for a full on skankathon!!! 3 massive club shows are planned starting this Friday at Cameo Watford (7th Feb) before going onto Gatecrasher Nottingham (1st March) and Gatecrasher Birmingham (8th March). The shows follow a recent massive US DJ tour.
Chase & Status have been touring the world, headlining festivals and selling out 3000 capacity rooms, easily cementing themselves with one of the most diverse fan bases in music!
Pharrell Williams of N*E*R*D hails them as 'The most exciting producers in the UK today', Rihanna considers them 'the backbone' of her record 'Rated R' but this isn't enough to quench the musical thirst of multi award winning, platinum record selling producers, writers and musicians in their own right, Chase & Status aka Will Kennard and Saul Milton. The duo, who count Jay Z and Snoop Dogg as fans, as well as drum and bass' finest Andy C, Hype and Pendulum; enjoy heavy rotation in the hands of dub-step royalty such as N-Type and Skream; and have each release enthusiastically supported by Radio 1 tastemakers Annie Mac and Zane Lowe.
This year the duo will release their highly anticipated third album- the follow up to 2010's 'No More Idols' - this summer. A preview track 'Big Man' achieved Radio 1 acclaim including Zane Lowe's 'hottest record' and was inspired by a year of touring on festival main stages,
Chase & Status became one of the biggest selling artists in the UK in 2011 selling over 1 million singles in the UK alone. Their album 'No More Idols' did not leave the top 40 for 35 weeks and has now achieved double platinum status. Will and Saul began 2012 with a Brit Nomination for 'Best British Group', a true credit to their enormous success in the UK and an amazing recognition of drum and bass music by such a prestigious awards ceremony.
The pair are also heading back into the studio to work on highly anticipated album number three. The duo - who worked on Rihanna's 'Rated R' album - have said they constantly keep busy, and would rather carry on working than sit and reflect on their past successes.
They commented: 'There's always more to be done and new ideas to try, so we try not to focus too much on our successes.'
