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!

Michael Buble Concert

It took many years, countless email notifications alerts, and a very stressful October morning in 2012 to finally bag myself two tickets to a Michael Bublé concert at the O2 Arena in Greenwich – and it was well worth the wait!

Opening for Michael Bublé was Naturally 7, a New York based seven person, all male a capella group, full of tight harmonies and classic tunes. With an infectious stage presence Naturally 7 were the perfect accompaniment, exciting the audience and gearing them up for the long anticipated arrival of the main act.

Michael Bublé’s arrived to a huge instrumental introduction, sliding down the stage in shiny shoes, a dapper tuxedo, and broke flawlessly into ‘Fever’ to screaming gooey eyed women around the arena. Buble continued to play a host of songs; several from his new album, some classic standards and a sprinkling of Bublé’s own pop songs including: It’s A Beautiful Day, Everything, Haven’t Met You Yet and a wonderful arrangement of Home with tear jerking visuals behind him. As expected his vocals throughout the show were powerful yet effortless, and the experience of his exceptional live band made paying the slightly extortionate £170 for two tickets slightly less painful.

I almost cried a river [excuse the pun] at the possibility that my favorite song was not to be included in the show, when Bublé’s reentered donning a sparkly silver suit and encored with the enormous notes of Cry Me A River to an almost wild audience. Buble finished with Save the Last Dance for Me and completed the night with what I naively believed to be a wiring fault, and was in fact Acapella belting out of the final notes of the concert. An unforgettable moment, which had the audience shrieking out in appreciation.

Flirtatious, charming, and welcoming – shaking hands and hugging people as he passes through the crowd, Bublé’s confidence, humor and camaraderie with his band made for a very pleasant experience. This was a truly wonderful show and I felt privileged to be able to appreciate Bublé’s voice live in an arena, as opposed to face up against a television screen. If you are a fan and have yet to experience Buble live in concert, I would strongly recommend it.
