The new Prodigy albums exploding out of my sound system.
Monster beats are brawling with the martial art fitness of the Gracie brother ju jitsu expertise- that same kind of physical prowess combined with a fierce intelligence. The album is cranked raw power but also full of hooks and flavours that never leaves it as stomping oblivion.
Track 1: The Day Is My Enemy
The album kicks off with a drum break that sounds like it’s from a futuristic Terminator film twisted with an Indian subcontinent flavour. A distorted vocal sings over on apocalyptic melody before the biggest beat ever comes crashing in and the screams of ‘get down’ slash over the bubbling digital hardcore of the backing track. A backing track that is full of the filth of a gonzoid Led Zeppelin and the kamikaze terminator of electronic music cranked to its filthiest and scariest best. A mighty opener, this is the 21st century answer to the mid seventies behemoth Zep era when rock bands really did kick out the jams instead of being the whining bedwetters of the modern times.
