Chase and Status - Global Gathering 2012 review
'A lot more subdued than previous performances'
Helen Giles - 28 July 2012
Closing the final night of the UK's notorious dance festival, the drum n bass pairing certainly aren't chasing their fans
The hoards pile in their thousands to see those responsible for hits such as 'Blind Faith' and 'Time' underneath the clear moonlit sky. Flying 'No Problems' into the sky through intense beats and a deep sub bass sound sends a subliminal message to those who need the encouragement to not give a shit.
Getting back to the their multicultural background with 'Eastern Jam' not only entertains the true fans but engages new listeners into the older sound of the drum n bass scene.
It seems a lot more subdued than their previous performances at last year's Global Gathering and Download, something that could be down to the poor sound quality from what looks to be an impressive main stage set up.
'Pieces' picks up an already broken crowd from a disappointingly average set with classic gritty synth leads and stupidly lengthy breakdowns.
The crowd have let go, and so have the group. Although still a good performance, it is below average in comparison to their other festival appearances. What a shame.
