The drum and bass duo - comprising Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) - were previously confirmed to be collaborating with 'Disconnect' singer Becky Hill on a "celebration" of the genre at this Saturday's (02.03.24) BRIT Awards at London's The O2 arena, and ahead of the ceremony, where they are also in contention for Group of the Year, it's been announced that the pair will also receive the special prize in recognition of their contributions to dance music.

The duo said: “We couldn’t be more proud - we’ve been flying the flag for British music now for a long time, we’re super proud of all the music that has come out of the UK. As producers, and as a creative duo, I think we are probably in one of the best places we’ve been.”

Damian Christian, Managing Director and President of Promotions at Atlantic Records (part of Warner Music UK) and Chair of the BRIT Committee for 2024 added: "For two decades Chase and Status have been at the heart of UK dance music. As one of the most progressive and prolific groups around, it's no surprise that they are still at the top of their game. After an incredible 2023, Chase and Status thoroughly deserve to be crowned Producers of the Year. Congratulations to Saul and Will - I can't wait to see what you have in store for us on Saturday night."
