A good friend reminded me that people don’t know/remember The Prodigy, so I’m going to be taking some time over the weeks and months to come, to right that particular wrong. The Prodigy’s effect on music in the 90’s could largely be described in the same way you’d describe the effects of a soccer riot in a quiet UK community. The obliteration of the rules by Liam after Fat Of The Land, Voodoo People & the other albums, remixes EPs & cuts to name, paved the way for EDM in the USA. If you don’t believe me, to put this in perspective, they headlined Coachella in 2002. If you didn’t even know Coachella was around in 2002, respect. Out Of Space is one of their earlier hits, that even most people familiar with the group haven’t heard. The severely old school rave track has a beat that cannot be ignored, and sample work that cannot be taken seriously.
One thought on “Midnight Music: The Prodigy – Out Of Space”
I’ve always loved The Prodigy. Good call.
