Chase & Status and Bou are well and truly in the limelight, unveiling an addictive and hard-hitting new collaborative single – ‘Baddadan.’ The new single is a dose of true drum and bass magic, featuring a stellar lineup of Irah, Flowdan, Trigga, and Takura.
Cementing Chase & Status as one of the most powerful founding names in the UK drum & bass scene, the single is a further reminder of how the duo uses their expertise to collaborate with the hottest new names; Will and Saul consistently profile the most exciting vocalists, rappers and producers, rising through the ranks.
A leading light in the new generation of drum & bass producers clocking up over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone, Bou is a crucial voice in a definitive evolution of the sonic blueprint of the genre and a huge club culture shift that has Gen Z ravers hooked. A 7x award-winning DJ and Producer, the Algerian-born, Manchester-raised artist most recently graced the cover of the DJ Mag in July and is heading for his first top 20 with his latest single ‘Closer’ featuring Slay.
‘Baddadan’ has been teased by numerous other DJs on the club scene, including Shy FX and Hedex, creating a huge demand for the hotly anticipated record, since June. Regular Chase & Status collaborators Irah, Trigga, Flowdan, and Trigga bring the record into a truly addictive place; set to be the biggest d’n’b record of the year.
‘Baddadan’ lands in the wake of the duo’s collaborative top 20 single ‘Disconnect’ with Becky Hill, and of course, last year’s sixth studio album ‘What Came Before.’ Consisting of 13 tracks, ‘What Came Before’ distilled 15 years of unparalleled experiences into a bold, invigorating album; informed by global tours, sold-out headline shows, five albums, multiple awards, chart success, underground kudos, top-tier collaborations and remixes, and, above all else, that unwavering dance floor energy that remains as tangible and transformative now as it has since the very beginning. This pure, unadulterated exhilaration is the glue that binds all of these experiences together, cultivating a legacy of positive vibes, unforgettable moments, and the continued progression of British club culture.
For trailblazers Chase and Status, making music is a constant process of regeneration and refinement that comes full circle, and this new single further highlights their inimitable presence in the UK Electronic music scene. Long-term fans will remember their critically acclaimed project ‘Rtrn II Jungle.’ A specialist album that saw Chase & Status bring back the nineties energy, music, and fashion, with a full concept experience, complete with exhibition, raves, and more. We are now in the duo’s next phase; Chase & Status have embarked on the next chapter of their illustrious career as a seasoned act ignited by the same excitement and anticipation that was present back when they first arrived.
