Chase & Status feat. Liam Bailey - Blind Faith

Heading out this weekend?  Crack this bad boy on then.

Seriously.  Dance wizards Chase & Status have done it again with an awesome dub-step inspired track to get you hyped up for the weekend.  In fact, screw the weekend - just put it on now.

Bailey's vocal in the verses provide a dark, almost mournful sound.  This builds towards the two-step, ecstatic chorus using a sample by Loleatta Holloway.  It's all energetically produced - put this on and try not to dance.  It's an absolute winner.  The video evokes nostalgia for the rave days of the early '90s, but Blind Faith is very much a modern dance classic.

Also, go and listen to End Credits which features Plan B - another shining example of the duo's talents.

Finally, Liam Bailey's solo work is worth a listen - he's reminiscent of a modern Bob Marley meets Amy Winehouse.  Check out You Better Leave Me.
