Chase And Status - 'Brand New Machine'

‘Brand New Machine’ sees Chase And Status retreat into dance music history

Chase And Status - 'Brand New Machine'

Album Info

  • Release Date: November 7, 2013
  • Producer: Chase and Status
  • Label: Mercury Records
6 / 10 Chase And Status, now on their third album, are often acclaimed as the new Prodigy for their noisy rave sound and ability to slay even the most heavy metal of festivals. But whereas The Prodigy’s third album ‘The Fat Of The Land’ saw them conquer the globe with a pioneering mix of punk, hardcore and, er, Crispian Mills from Kula Shaker, ‘Brand New Machine’ sees Chase And Status retreat into dance music history. It’s not so much the promised “nod to the ’90s rave era” as a photocopy, from ‘Blk & Blu’’s two-step tribute to ‘Count On Me’’s piano riff. The result is well produced and enjoyable, but it would be nice to see personality and innovation – two things The Prodigy rarely lacked – emerge among the Altern-8 tributes.
