Chase and Status on their 1990's inspired new album

“It's inspired by 1998 with the raves and all that shit,” says Saul Milton AKA ‘Chase’. “It's all those memories from when we were DJ's. It's why I'm sitting here now, talking to you; it's why we're doing this shit. With everything we do on the record, we've really gone back in time and remembered all of why we're here. The whole spectrum of the album is very 1990s - the album is a big step back in time.”

Saul talked candidly about the inspiration for the duo’s new record, Brand New Machine, in an interview with our journalist, Jessica Dawson. The album, which reached number 2 in the charts, features contributions from such artists as Major Lazer, Nile Rodgers and Pusha T.

We love working with new talent. It's inspiring, it's exciting. All they want to do is make music and perform. It's an incredible state to be in. It's also an incredible feeling to be part of someone's journey.
