 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Chase & Status deliver magnificent drum n bass releases with mainstream potential. When you put in the winning mix the stunning soulful and slightly indie voice by Tom Grennan then you have an absolute hit that will help you recall how you react when life goes against your plans and everything simply goes wrong. Superb cinematic strings that carry you away and energetic driving drums and bass that flow so beautifully and in conjunction with the vocal leave a scar somewhere deep in your heart. The remix package is simply brilliant with Salvatore Ganacci adding his trap tropical house colours with chunky grooves, deep minimal basslines, vintage reggae style sounds and tropical rhythm with even additional saxophone melody at the background. The beloved Tough Love deliver the upbeat mainstream friendly house version that is made for radio plays and less for clubs. Superb trumpet like riffs in the drop, amazing cinematic strings and irresistible groove that make you wanna dance non stop by singing along the powerful vocals. Lastly Dawn Wall remix has been praised from the UK Drum n Bass community and you can understand when you listen to it. It starts with the ear catching vocals then moves to build up tension with vocal chops until the liquid travelling and mesmerizing drum n bass beats will take you far and way. Quality production that will last the test of time. It is so nice to see that electronic music artists use great orchestras in their tracks that add incredible musicality. I need to stress  though that the winning factor is Tom Grennan and lets hope that one of the majors will sign him cause this guys has a lot to give. Amen Chase & Status. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
