Chase & Status win Producer of the Year at BRIT Awards 2024: "We couldn’t be more proud - we’ve been flying the flag for British music for a long time"

Electronic duo Chase & Status have been awarded Producer of the Year at this year's BRIT Awards. The announcement comes ahead of the event on Saturday 2 March, which will be see the pair perform alongside Becky Hill at London's O2 Arena.

In addition to their own work, Chase & Status have produced for a number of other acts, including Rihanna, Kano, Rita Ora, Tinie Tempah, Example and Plan B. 

In a post shared to their Twitter/X page, Chase & Status commented on the win, saying "winning Producer of the Year is a special moment in our career. Being producers is such an important part of who we are as artists and to be recognised for that at the highest level is an honour."
