(too big for) Hidden Gem: Chase & Status
Chase & Status are an electro duo who hail from London, UK. It consists of Saul "Chase" Milton and Will "Status" Kennard. The duo have a very unique electronic/pop sound to their music and have quite catchy tracks. They have actually been quite popular in England for a while and currently have over 3,000 fans on their facebook page. They are just now starting to become mainstream. I actually just heard them on XM radio the other day. Their first album, More Than Alot, debuted in the UK album charts at number 49 on October 19, 2008. Since then they have been up to a lot with tours all over England and many other parts of Europe. They just released their second album, No More Idols, on January 31st and it's a good one. Expect a lot from this electro duo in the near future. In the meantime, enjoy two of my favorite tracks by them "Streetlife" (featuring Takura) and "End Credits" (featuring Plan B).
