Listen Up! No.84: Chase & Status feat. Liam Bailey - Blind Faith

London producers Saul 'Chase' Milton and Will 'Status' Kennard shot to prominence thanks to 2009's 'End Credits', a collaboration with rapper-cum-blue-eyed soul singer Plan B which was featured in the Michael Caine film Harry Brown. Their second album, No More Idols, will drop later this month, and if the lead single is anything to go by, it could be a hot seller. 'Blind Faith' adds an early '90s saucer-eyed rave feel to the duo's instantly recognisable arena drum 'n' bass shtick, a nice side-step for a sound cornered by Pendulum many moons ago, which should make it popular with post-decadent 20 (or 30-) something  revellers. However, the true masterstroke is a dub-heavy verse propelled by Nottingham newcomer Liam Bailey's sad-eyed, soulful Jamaican-patois vocal, sure to be ringing out of student party clubs and Brixton dancehalls alike for the forseeable future.
