fabric presents Chase & Status - RTRN II FABRIC
Chase & Status are Will Kennard, Saul Milton and MC Rage. Their ground-breaking debut album ‘More Than A Lot’ was signed to Andy C’s label RAM Records and is certified Gold. It was followed by ‘No More Idols’ - the second best-selling UK album by a British band in the year of its release and which has now surpassed double platinum status.
Over the years the band’s ability to traverse a variety of musical styles became apparent as they collaborated with artists Nile Rodgers, Craig David and Emeli Sandé. Rihanna credited the trio with being intrinsic to her 2009 LP ‘Rated R’. Other production projects included Rita Ora’s No.1 UK hit ‘RIP’, Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Sirens’, and tracks for Snoop Dogg and Alexandra Burke.
"We are honoured to be part of such an iconic mix series alongside so many other great artists. fabric is an intrinsic part of British music and nightclub culture. Its energy is electric. Following on from our RTRN II JUNGLE album we hope this mix captures some of that energy that inspired us again and again to do what we do’"
Comprised of forty-four tracks for the mix and an eight track double vinyl, Chase & Status have curated just over an hour of quality raw, melodic and energetic Jungle and Drum & Bass. Selections from Remarc, DJ Rap, Shy FX, Bou, Wax Doctor, Watch The Ride and more are layered with forthcoming original material from the legendary trio including the rowdy and ravey ‘Hardstep’ and the pulsing peak time ‘Why’. Further exclusives take in the VIPs ‘Duplate Original ft. Kano (VIP)’ and the euphoric and harmonic roller ‘Breathing ft. Bo Saris (fabric VIP Mix)’, both reworked from previous albums, as well as ‘Retreat2018 ft. Cutty Ranks (RTRN VIP)’ from their most recent body of work RTRN II JUNGLE. Two more unreleased singles from breakthrough Manchester artist Bou called ‘Meditate’and a VIP of ‘Pub Grub’ with Hedex add to the stack of unreleased cuts.
