Chase & Status and Bou Premiere New Song “Baddadan” featuring IRAH, Flowdan, Trigga & Takura on BBC Radio 1
London-based electronic music duo Chase & Status, consisting of Saul Milton and Will Kennard, and British DJ Bou teamed up to premier a new song “Baddadan” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Jack Saunders.
This time, the duos and Bou worked with IRAH, Flowdan, Trigga and Takura on the track.
The track was written by Saul Milton, William Kennard, Amine Bouguenna, Ezra Bryant, Marc Veira, Tundy Isiah Smith, and Takura Tendayi.
Produced by Chase & Status and Bou.
Status (Will Kennard) told Jack Saunders about this collaboration, “We kind of assembled, everyone we knew on it basically, but it kind of came by really organically like we were chatting with Bou for years about potentially getting industry or doing something together when I haven't had to collabo with anyone in the DMV scene on a production level for a long, long time. It's kind of out of our comfort zone but we have absolutely loved what he's been doing. The vibe has been arrived a lot of shows together and that was it. Really the vibe was right.”
- Bou added, “I mean, I went down to this studio and we vibes down and then just IRAH came through, and nothing he wrote the main hook.”
Status continued, “We'll have a process with IRAH every single time which is like we'll record for ages and they'll do loads of things. I'm sitting there moaning to myself right now, every time this one before this one now. And then at the end of it, when he's like, oh, wait a second. One more thing, 'baddadan', we like here we are. Everything we do with him. He's got this kind of magical way of working.”
Flowdan said, “They sent me the track which was a dancehall version of it. But yeah, it wasn't natural at all different track and sort of madness behind that is Yo. If you spit on something that you're more comfortable one nice pace, blah, blah, blah. He's gonna get the best view. But it took me about two weeks to be fair. I was like God, I was living in Hong and on my way to deliver because I knew I was on a track with Trigga and IRAH. That was cool. There was a Trigga. Trigger the icon, someone I used to listen to growing up, say IRAH so forth. So it's like, Okay, I've known to the fun long time, but we've never been in this situation before, so I had to really know what I was doing.”
