This one here refers especially to those who might be fancy getting to know some of the rejected material during Invaders Must Die era and it’s about a remix made by UK producer Boy 8-Bit. Always sounds interesting a story like this and even having the chance to listen to some of the ‘rejected’ remixes.
You can listen to his submitted remix and read also the story behind it, as mentioned on his soundcloud page.
“Back in 2009 XL Records asked me to remix the Prodigy’s ‘Take Me To The Hospital’.. An amazing opportunity seeing that, like many people, the first two Prodigy albums had played a big part in my journey into electronic music.
It was a weird phase when I was trying to mix “club” music style drums with influence from minimal techno, so lots of clicky drums and ping pong echo. I also recall wanting to do a “Hip House” influenced beat on this… I cut the tail of one of the parts and looped it in the sampler to create those “voice” like chords and then looping a note from the lead sound and playing that as the top line. It was all quite bizarre.
This was the second demo I submitted, with a heavier “drop”, the aim being to add more vocal over and tighten the arrangement and obviously mix it all.. But I think it was a tad too odd and Liam Howlett wasn’t into it at all. Dubstep was getting big at the time so I was never going to be able to compete with that and I think they went with a Rusko remix.
At least I got to try!”
