Five Reasons Why We’re Excited For Chase & Status

Posted: Monday 21 August 2017

Chase & Status have announced a special headline show at O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday 1 November and we can’t WAIT for it. Here’s why…

1. New album Tribe.

Chase & Status released their fourth full-length album on Friday (18 August) and it’s yet another compliment to the duo’s career. Featuring guest appearances from superstars Emeli Sandé and Craig David, indie-punks Slaves and upcoming artists Tom Grennan and Bugzy Malone, its collaboration list is impressive in itself. Boasting 17 tracks, all anthems in their own way, Tribe offers everything from the best in trap and grime, to high-adrenaline drum and bass and occasionally drops the made-for-the-mainstream chart hits. Whether you’re an OG fan of Chase and Status’ roots, or have recently developed a crush for their summer rave smashes, there’s something for everyone on Tribe.

2. It’s their last headline show of 2017.

Chase & Status have had an insane year so far. They’ve DJ’d all over the world, including a residency at Together in Ibiza and festival  sets  that include Snowbombing in Austria and V Festival, plus an outstanding headline performance at Lovebox festival, (which they live streamed on their Facebook). This’ll be their only headline live show for the rest of the year, so don’t miss out on your last chance to catch the duo in all their glory.

3. They’ve collaborated with some of the world’s biggest acts and helped launch the careers of so many artists.

One of the many things Chase & Status are good at is perfecting the art of the collaboration. New album Tribe alone has a collaborators list that looks like a VIP party, but over their career they’ve worked with huge names, including CeeLo Green, Tinie Tempah and Plan B. Not only that, but they’ve taken artists at the start of their careers and given them a platform to launch themselves into stardom. Maverick Sabre, Liam Bailey and Kano have all made appearances on Chase & Status’ albums and during their live sets.

Speaking of which, they’ve made a promise that there are going to be some very special guests from across their four albums joining them at O2 Academy Brixton, so you can start making bets now as to who they might be

4. This is what happened last time they played O2 Academy Brixton

This isn’t the first time Chase & Status have headlined the venue, oh no. Rewind to 2012 and the duo found themselves practically blowing the roof off with their performance. It was a night that nobody wanted to forget, handy then that they decided to film it and release it as a DVD.

5. They usually play to crowds four times the size, so this is going to be a special, intimate show.

Since their career-defining show at O2 Academy Brixton in 2012, things have understandably gotten bigger and better for the duo. The last time they played a headline show in London, it was at the 10,000+ capacity Alexandra Palace and before that, The O2 Arena, which holds twice the amount of people. This is going to be an incredibly rare opportunity to catch Chase & Status in an intimate (for them) venue, but don’t think that means half the show. They’ll be bringing their arena-sized production and double the amount of energy, so have no doubt that it is going. to. go. off.

Make no mistake, tickets for this show are going to sell out very quickly so do not sleep on them.
