Chase and Status
Manchester-based Chase & Status, aka Saul Milton and Will Kennard, first got their name out to the world after dropping a number of Drum and Bass anthems for the underground labels. In 2006, their production work for Jenna G's "In Love" the earned them their first award for 'Best Single' at the BBC 1Xtra Drum & Bass Awards.
Despite a high volume of releases and constant DJing, Chase And Status managed to mastermind and release their debut album More Than A Lot in 2008. Packed with the kind of drum and bass anthems that have helped build their reputation, it also features a variety of tracks which shows the diversity of their work.
Since 2009, the duo have been involved in some fantastic productions, most significantly with Rihanna who has been quoted as calling the pair 'the backbone' of her record Rated R.
