The Prodigy

Bigroom is on its way out, and big beat is returning to its old stomping grounds. The Prodigy transcend typical dance music acts with their untouchable style of ultra aggressive, riot inducing, break beats which have earned that mass appeal that spans beyond the realms of electronica. While we await The Day Is My Enemy, their first studio release in 6 years, they've been treating us with a slew of singles that show the band has picked up right where they left off. Wall of Death, which refers to organized evolution of a mosh pit in which two sides of the crowd split then charge eachother like two warring armies, is just as brutal and adrenaline pumping and makes you want to trash your room just like their most revered classics. The bassline has a slight modernized, electro hint but overall the group took the “if its not broke, don't fix it” mentality, and thank god they did, for it truly is a joy to hear Kieth Flint and Maxim's angry quips as you're hearing apocalyptic beats that make you want to burn tires in the street. The Day Is My Enemy could easily be the biggest record of the year and is guaranteed to manufacture wall of deaths to a festival near you.
