Chase & Status Live!

Posted: April 12th, 2011

Chase & Status 'No More Idols' - US album release and LIVE Tour

The U.K. duo Chase & Status have set their sights on breaking new ground in America this year with the US release of their chart topping sophomore album No More Idols (debuted at #2 in the UK selling 55,000 and coming in only second to Adele’s 21) along with their first ever headlining tour of the US and a debut performance at this year’s Coachella Festival.   The trek will find the duo playing 1,000-1,500 capacity venues and if the past five years in the UK are any indication, Chase & Status could very well be the next big thing to break Stateside.

'No More Idols' - Available on iTunes

No More Idols is the follow up to the band’s impressive debut album More Than A Lot. The new album features an array of amazing guest artists including Plan B, Clare Maguire, Dizzee Rascal, White Lies and CeeLo Green (the only US artist to guest on the set as the duo went for a decidedly British flare on the album overall).  Highly accomplished producers, remixers and DJs – Chase & Status (Saul Milton and Will Kennard) – really wanted to showcase what’s happening in the UK today with No More Idols.  It’s been a successful endeavor to say the least.

Chase & Status have been hailed as “The most exciting producers in the UK today” by Pharrell Williams of N*E*R*D fame and their credits as producers include Rihanna who has been quoted as calling the pair “the backbone” of her new record Rated R.  As remixers they’ve added their flare to Jay Z’s “Death Of Auto-Tune,” The Prodigy’s “Invaders Must Die,” and White Lies “Death” among others.

If producing and remixing weren’t enough, originally playing out as DJs, Chase & Status have earned a reputation as a live act as well and completed two massive sold out live tours of the UK and Europe in just the last 12 months including a landmark sold out show at the London Roundhouse venue last month.  They hit the festival circuit last summer where they performed at Brighton’s “The Great Escape” alongside The Fiery Furnaces, Broken Social Scene, Ellie Goulding and Marina & the Diamonds, “Lovebox Weekender” with Dizzee Rascal and Hot Chip, “Global Gathering” with Faithless, Armin Van Buuren and Carl Cox, headlined the dance tent at “Glastonbury” and played The Prodigy’s “Invaders Must Die Festival” at Milton Keynes Bowl (main stage).

Now with an offer to play the illustrious Coachella Festival in Indio, CA, the duo is keen to make waves in the US with what Billboard calls their “kaleidoscope of sound” and what Spin called “A heavyhearted soul-barring rave-revival plea that takes U.K. warehouse-party nostalgia to vertiginous heights.”  The band added a slew of US headlining dates to their routing around Coachella and will be releasing No More Idols to coincide with the run.

Ghostland Observatory - Saturday Night!

Posted: April 12th, 2011

Ghostland Observatory is not a band, but an agreement between two friends to create something that not only heals their beat-driven hearts, but pleases their rock ‘n roll souls. Taking the working man’s approach, Ghostland Observatory spend countless hours in their south Austin studio. They have released two albums in less than a year, and have moved audiences from coast to coast with their live performances and unique style. Ghostland Observatory is the duo of front man Aaron Behrens and producer/drummer Thomas Turner. Behrens’ vocal style and stage performances are unique and uncompromising, and he has drawn early comparisons to Freddie Mercury and Prince. Turner is heavily influenced by electronic artists such as Daft Punk, Laurent Garnier and Green Velvet, as well as rockers such as The Animals, David Bowie, and The Clash. With their spectral blend of electronics, drums, guitar and vocals, they have emerged with a sound that is the culmination of past influence and present inspiration, and can only be described as BALLSY.
