Will and Saul are the best friends and brains behind Chase & Status – we spoke to Will (Chase) whilst Saul had just touched down in Ibiza. Calling us from a vast open living room or office in London Will was easy going, humble and down to earth. In a nutshell he was real. Apart from the lovely zoom setting, he’s just a lad who made it onto the decks, exactly where he’d dreamed of being. Chase & Status credit their rise to Radio 1 play of their debut album More Than A lot. But it was more than just radio play that got them where they are today. They blur the lines between mainstream and the underground in terms of sound. Plus, they put on a damn good show – sweaty, euphoric, and intimate feeling. The guys pivoted from being DJs to performing a live act at Radio 1 Big Weekend in Swindon in 2009. “We were following in the footsteps of The Prodigy and people at that time like Pendulum who had broken it open doing Drum and Bass live.” They explained of the experience. Now, they’re just about ready to take over the world.
