Chase and Status

After an excellent year around the festival circuit, London duo Chase and Status are set to end 2013 on a high with the forthcoming release of their new album Brand New Machine. In contrast to the heavy grime, dubstep lines and wobbly breakdowns, the duo have leapt to the other end of the drum ‘n’ bass spectrum with the upbeat tones of their new single Count on Me. Featuring the rich vocals of newcomer soul singer Moko, her looped vocals are reminiscent of old school 90s techno, making this track anything but typical of Chase and Status. Count on Me is certainly easy listening and it is likely to appeal to a much wider audience than the duo has previously attracted. The high energy beat is perfect for clubbing across the spectrum, and the  drum ‘n’ bass rhythm section laced with pitch-shifted samples and syncopated keyboard chords, makes for a very slick production.

It isn’t my favourite Chase and Status tune of all time, but it is a great track and I certainly wouldn’t be changing the station when it comes on – and I suspect this will be frequently in the coming months.

Count on Me is Out Now!
Brand New Machine LP out on  October 7, via Mercury Records/Universal Music.
