Plug's 5th Birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! WE THOUGHT WE’D CELEBRATE OUR 5TH BIRTHDAY IN STYLE, SO WE GOT A FEW FRIENDS TOGETHER…
/// CHASE AND STATUS
How many artists / producers can count Jay Z, Snoop Dogg and Pharell as fans as well as drum and bass’ finest Andy C, Hype and Pendulum; enjoy heavy rotation in the hands of dub-step royalty such as N-Type and Skream; and have each release enthusiastically supported by Annie Mac and Zane Lowe? This is what Saul Milton and Will Kennard, producing under the name Chase & Status, have achieved in 5 years, and the highlight of their young career so far has been their debut LP ‘More Than Alot’ which has helped turned them into a unique urban phenomenon, and the biggest crossover act to come out of the underground since Pendulum.
The new album is dropping anytime, Expect big big things ..
