TOP NEW INDIE: CHASE & STATUS AND BLOSSOMS - THIS MOMENT
Chase & Status are absolutely mental UK Drum & Bass legends and in “This Moment” they team up Manchester Indie Pop act band Blossoms to make the perfect crossfire crossover radio rave monster. With a foothold in both genres, this track is too big to fail. I mean look, that's what they said about Wall Street and look at how well that turned out. Didn’t fail, did they? Not that this is the Wall Street of music or anything. It’s more like the exact opposite.

Though the original certainly downplays the Drum & Bass production, there is still enough to dupe Johnny and Jenny Q. Public into listening to a genre they’d normally snub their nose at. Like how Outkast’s “Bombs Over Baghdad” uses jungle. Didn’t know that, did you? Check out the “Back to Rave C&S Remix” (added below for good measure) to hear some of the killer drum&bass that made these Brits so famous in the first place. I mean this is the banger.
CHASE & STATUS AND BLOSSOMS - THIS MOMENT (BACK TO THE RAVE C&S REMIX)
From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
