Chase and Status 'couldn't be prouder' after being announced as BRIT Producer of the Year Award winners for 2024

Chase and Status “couldn’t be prouder” after being announced as the winners of the BRIT Producer of the Year Award for 2024.

It was previously confirmed that the drum and bass duo, consisting of Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status), would collaborate with singer Becky Hill in a “celebration” of the genre at Saturday’s ceremony.

Ahead of the BRITs, where they are also competing for Group of the Year, it was announced that the pair will also receive the special award in recognition of their contributions to dance music.

The duo said: “We couldn’t be prouder – we’ve been flying the flag for British music for a long time, we’re so proud of all the music that’s come out of the UK.”

“As producers and as a creative duo, I think we’re probably in one of the best places we’ve ever been.”
