Chase & Status, aka Will Kennard and Saul Milton, met in London during the 1990s, later DJing together at Manchester University and releasing their first production in 2004. Their style of music is rooted in drum n’ bass and also takes in influences from the UK hip hop and dance scenes, with collaborators ranging from Plan B and Tinie Tempah to Dizzee Rascal and Cee Lo Green.
After releasing a stream of successful drum n’ bass anthems and performing DJ gigs around the world, Chase & Status released their debut album, More Than A Lot, in 2008. The album was a critical and commercial success, even being spotted and sampled by US rapper Snoop Dogg.
With an album in the bag and a solid reputation as one of the UK’s best drum n’ bass DJ duos, Chase & Status proceeded to build their now legendary live show. Jersey Live revellers will be treated to a spectacular combination of music, video and lighting, as the two are joined by permanent band members Andy Gangadeen (drums) and their MC, Rage.
With one of 2011’s biggest albums in No More Idols, Chase & Status have kept the charts as well as dance floors and festivals very busy, with their second studio album peaking at number 2 in the UK.
Chase & Status will headline Jersey Live 2012’s main stage on Saturday 1st September.
