Chase & Status Team Up With Slaves on New Single ‘Control,’ Drop New Video [WATCH]
Chase & Status have teamed up with U.K. primal punk duo Slaves on their latest single "Control." Following the track's premiere on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show this past week, the collaborators shared a video for the song.
While Chase & Status are perhaps best known for their drum'n'bass production, the frenetic "Control" ventures more into the realm of the riotous punk for which Slaves are best known. Watch the politically charged Henrik Hansen-directed video for "Control" below:
The track is the first single from the electronic bass production outfit's fourth full-length studio album, which Saul Milton (Chase), Will Kennard (Status) and longtime collaborator MC Rage have announced is due later this year.
Other collaborators have yet to be revealed, but the group has worked with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Jay Z and The Prodigy, so that's reason enough to expect some huge features.
"Control" follows the outfit's London Bars EP, which was released serially via Chase & Status' own MTA Records. The EP featured some of the U.K.'s biggest rising grime MCs, including Frisco, Giggs, Bonkaz and Novelist.
Known for near constant touring, 2016 will see Chase & Status make a number of festival appearances, which, according to a press statement, will be announced shortly. Prior to the launch of their new album, the outfit will be playing at Radio 1's Big Weekend this May, NME reports.
The Mercury Music Prize-nominated duo Slaves, consisting of Laurie Vincent and Isaac Holman, are writing their second album. The Kent-based band, one of the U.K.'s most in-demand live acts, will embark on their first U.S. tour in April.
