Chase & Status

    Bingo Sessions Vol. 3

    8

    In
    a relatively short time, drum ‘n’ bass producers, remixers and deejays
    Chase & Status have made a name for themselves with some extremely
    high-quality output. Following in the footsteps of icons Marky, Zinc
    and Friction, Chase & Status cement their status as the deejays to
    watch with their impressive Bingo Sessions Vol. 3. This is drum ‘n’ bass as it’s meant to be: furious, fast and funky.

    With
    six of their own tracks on the release as well as several from Zinc,
    the compilation is a showcase for their label, Bingo. But that’s beside
    the point. This mix grabbed me from the opening ragga vibes of “Come
    Back,” featuring Top Cat, before taking me on a seamless journey
    through dance-floor drum ‘n’ bass. The track selection consists of some
    of the current most popular tracks by well-known artists such as
    Stakka, Jenna G, TC, D Kay, and A-Sides.

     

    The
    deejays keep things on the funky side, with forays into reggae, hip-hop
    and soul, while never sacrificing the hard edge of their sound. What
    Chase & Status do to great effect is blend familiar tracks in
    exciting ways. The mixing is flawless and dramatic, the beats cutting
    out and landing perfectly. If there were ever a compilation that
    captured the sound of drum ‘n’ bass dance marathon, this might be it.
