The Prodigy Wage War On EDM

the prodigy wage war on edm

As a culture, dance music tends to preach PLUR, promote acceptance, and protest conflict. Then, well, there’s The Prodigy. Born out of the British breakbeat and hardcore scene, and with heavy punk influences, the group is nothing if not aggressive. Currently comprised of musicians Keith Flint, Liam Howlett, and Maxim Reality, The Prodigy last dropped an album six years ago, but they have by no means ignored the burgeoning prominence of electronic dance music. Rather, the artists waited, watched, and came to their own individual conclusions. The verdict? They do not like what they see.

We’re from the proper rave scene, and it needs life breathing into it. But we’re not here to save anything. F*ck that! We’re here to wipe it out!

In an interview with The Guardian, Flint criticized the generic sound of the industry, claiming “everything’s so commercial it shuts down the underground.” As a result of this loss of innovation, Howlett declared that “dance music at the moment is so f*cking dead.”  The solution? If you think that an adrenaline shot of The Prodigy’s grating, edgy sound straight to the community’s stopped heart will shock it back to life, then you’re in luck.

Not only are they releasing their new album, The Day is My Enemy, on March 30th, but The Prodigy already unveiled two tracks from the record, Nasty, and the title track, The Day is My Enemy. Are you as excited as we are, or is this attitude against the PLUR idealism of dance music? Pick a side, and let us know your preferences in the comments, on Twitter, or Facebook!
