CHASE AND STATUS ADDED TO EDEN SESSIONS LINE-UP
Chase & Status have been confirmed as the latest acts to be headlining an Eden Session on Wednesday July 4. Special guest on the evening will be Labrinth. The London duo, otherwise known as Saul Milton and Will Kennard, are returning to the Eden Project, Cornwall having headlined the sell out Eden Arts Cafe and 247 Magazine promoted Rumble in the Jungle party in May 2010.
Chase & Status are known for their big-name collaborations and have featured artists such as Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Delilah and fellow Eden Sessions headliner Plan B. They are due to release their as yet untitled third studio album this year, following their acclaimed debut More Than Alot, released in 2008, and 2011’s platinum-selling UK number two No More Idols. Last year, they won both Best Live Act and Best Producer gongs at the Drum & Bass Awards, following up 2009’s triple win in the Best Producer, Best Album (More Than Alot) and Best Track (Take Me Away) categories.
Martin Williams, Eden’s Marketing Director, said: “Chase & Status played an amazing show on their first visit to Eden so we’re really looking forward to seeing them on our main Eden Sessions stage for the first time. Since they first played here, they have established themselves as one of the best urban acts in the world, redefining the genre and working with some of the top MCs around.
Chase & Status and Labrinth join musical comic Tim Minchin (Saturday June 23), Example and Devlin (Saturday June 30), Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls headline a day of folk on (Sunday July 1), Plan B (Friday July 6), Blink-182 (Sunday July 8) and indie stars Noah and the Whale and The Vaccines (Wednesday July 11) for the 2012 series of Eden Sessions.
