Sam Hill - 26th Sept 2013

Chase and Status continue to move onto bigger and bigger dancefloors with this post-festival room filler for Count On Me, featuring Moko, turned into an exhilarating promo by Charlie and Joe documenting all sorts of wild abandon.

The directing duo have brought together a terrific cast of over thirty people and magnificently spliced together their different stories – with the help of the lightning-fast editing fingers of Walter Mauriot. An absolute banger. 

Charlie (of Charlie & Joe):  "When we first heard the track, we felt we had to make the video all about the music. The track has such a nostalgic 90's tone and that feeling of rushy euphoria you used to get at raves and parties all over the country came flooding back to us.

"We wanted to depict that moment we all feel when you just have to let it all go and dance. No matter where you are or what you're doing. This threw up some problems as we knew we would have to cast a lot of people. We enlisted the help of the very talented Leanne Flinn and Sophie Dewey to street cast for us. 

"Our editor was Walter Mauriot at Hagon, who we've never worked with before, but his reel speaks for itself. He proved vital in creating that euphoric, rushy vibe. Taking 20-30 characters and putting them into a 4 minute promo is not an easy thing to do for anyone but Walter smashed it."
