Chase & Status win Producer of the Year

With the biggest night in British music set to take place this coming Saturday night, The BRIT Awards 2024 with Mastercard today announce the recipients of the prestigious Producer of the Year award as trailblazing electronic music duo Chase & Status.

Chase & Status - who as well as performing on the show with two-time BRIT Dance Act winner Becky Hill, are nominated in Group of the Year - are a leading talent in the Electronic scene and are celebrating 15 years in the game. Hot off the back of a viral Boiler Room performance in 2023, the duo released their 10-track LP “2 Ruff Vol 1”, which flew out the gates with hit single, “Baddadan” and has spent over 15 weeks and counting in the Top 10 of the UK charts.

They were the first artists since 2010 to have four singles simultaneously in the UK Top 40 - ‘Baddadan’, ‘Liquor + Cigarettes’, ‘Selecta’ and ‘Disconnect’ - the latter featuring Becky Hill which garnered 48 million UK streams alone. With 2.2 billion streams worldwide across their catalogue, and 9.11 billion streams on productions they are credited on, Chase & Status have cemented themselves as a formidable force as artists and producers.

As producers they are credited not only for their own releases, but the works of many other global and UK acts. Their production credits feature on works in the last twelve months by artists including CASISDEAD, Goddard, Luude, Becky Hill Bugzy Malone, Paloma Faith and Venbee, with other credits previously for acts such as Rihanna, Kano, Rita Ora, Tinie Tempah, Example, Plan B, Kurupt FM and Pip Millett. A sold-out UK tour is also underway this month with shows in Cardiff, London and Manchester. 

The BRIT award for Producer of the Year has been voted on by a select panel of expert judges. Previous recipients include David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Steve Mac.

Commenting on the Producer of the Year award win, they said: 
“We couldn’t be more proud - we’ve been flying the flag for British music now for a long time, we’re super proud of all the music that has come out of the UK. As producers, and as a creative duo, I think we are probably in one of the best places we’ve been.” 

Damian Christian, Managing Director and President of Promotions at Atlantic Records (part of Warner Music UK) and Chair of the BRIT Committee for 2024 added: "For two decades Chase & Status have been at the heart of UK dance music. As one of the most progressive and prolific groups around, it's no surprise that they are still at the top of their game. After an incredible 2023, Chase & Status thoroughly deserve to be crowned Producers of the Year. Congratulations to Saul and Will - I can't wait to see what you have in store for us on Saturday night."

This year’s BRITs is shaping up to be yet another exciting and entertaining night celebrating the great and the good of British and international music, with a stellar line-up of homegrown and global talent set to take to the BRITs stage to perform; along with Becky Hill X Chase & Status, fans will get to see Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding, Dua Lipa, Jungle, Kylie Minogue - who will be honoured as BRITs Global Icon, 7x nominated RAYE, Rema and Tate McRae.
