Chase and Status
Tonight, drum and bass and dubstep electronic producers Chase and Status are here in Vancouver.
If you haven't heard of them before, perhaps you've heard some of their work before: Chase and Status signed a major deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation (his management, music publishing and entertainment company), and focused more on producing for other artists including Rihanna's 2009 album Rated R (in fact, at the recent Drum and Bass Awards, Chase and Status won Best Live Act and Best Producer).
And if you saw the Michael Caine movie Harry Brown, so you've definitely heard their song "End Credits" with rapper/singer/actor Plan B at the end of the movie (as the end credits rolled)...and that's the song I played on today's NMT.
I mentioned before that Chase and Status are here tonight: they're on their No More Idols North American Live Tour right now, and stopping here tonight at Gossip Nightclub in the Plaza of Nations! I've wanted to since their first album, More Than Alot, came out, and I've proclaimed it to be Chase and Status Day in Vancouver. Spin Magazine commented it was "A heavy hearted, soul-baring, rave-revival!" I can't wait...only five more hours...
