The London based duo, Chase And Status, have just dropped an exclusive re-work of 'Gangsta Boogie' featuring new bars from legendary Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon as well as fresh new talent Knytro, signed to the pair's MTA Records. Better known for their Dnb / UK Garage sound its not the first time Chase And Status have taken a surprising foray into the world of Hip Hop. Each time they do its been rather successful. Hip Hop is obviously at their heart and having made your money with hit singles it becomes possible to indulge in whatever you want and also attract some quality features to your dalliances.
With a big kick and an even harder hitting snare, this has a throwback feel with heavy lyrics and dark vibe. This will mash up any sound.
Later this month Saul Milton and MC Rage will be heading across the pond to embark on a North American Brand New Machine tour which will see them DJing in various acclaimed venues across the US and Canada. The tour is short, but gruelling. Not sure how they can make it between some of the towns in the timeframe stipulated, but if you are about when they touch down be sure to support.
