It's difficult to imagine today's contemporary dance music scene without dubstep. It has hit the mainstream in a huge way, much more so than its antecedent drum & bass. But it was those purveyors of the dark, industrial, broken Amen break who paved the way for today's bass music scene. Among the early adopters, and certainly among those responsible for bringing it to the mainstream are Manchester's Chase & Status. From spinning d&b in dank clubs to producing dubstep tracks for Rhianna's Rated R album, Saul Milton and Will Kennard have been doing things their way. Their singular sonic identity has allowed them to work with major figures in the field, including Tinie Tempah, Plan B, and Cee Lo Green, among others. Saul Milton chats with Anand Harsh on this week's episode of the podcast about going big, while staying true to their underground roots.
Last year, the duo released No More Idols, which quickly went double-platinum in the UK. Today (March 20), legendary US label Casablanca Records is re-releasing the album as a deluxe, special edition, which features a bunch of music videos as well as unreleased remixes from Nero, Dillon Francis, Feed Me, and more! Chase & Status will hit Miami for Ultra Music Festival this weekend to celebrate the record's US release.
