Chase & Status caught in another fake DJing scandal?
Wed 11th Nov, 2009 Newsin
First it was New Order bassist gone wild Peter Hook caught up there behind the one’s and two’s putting on a well rehearsed pantomime, then last month drum n bass upstart Mistabishi admitted to miming a recent DJ set, and now it looks as though we’ve got another club phantom on our hands, with Chase & Status currently embroiled in a fake DJing scandal.
As reported by Mixmag, drum n bass fans have been kicking up a serious stink this week after some dubious footage emerged online from a recent Chase & Status DJ set, showing one half of the duo busting out some particularly suspect moves.
From the looks of things, Chase & Status are taking some liberties with their DJ set, using some pre-recorded mixes and pre-pitched tracks in the set, which comes off as extremely peculiar as from all reports the UK duo used to turn in some technically polished sets.
So far fans have been divided with some saying it’s tune selection that really matters, with others braying for Chase & Status’ blood, so check out the video below for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments section. Whatever the outcome, suffice to say we’re safe for their upcoming tour of Australia as they’ll be performing a brand new live band set. Phew!
