Paula Temple takes on one of the most important and influential electronic music acts in history, The Prodigy.
‘Roadblox’ is one of the standout tracks from their latest album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’. R&S’s arena filling techno star Paula Temple was honoured to remix the track and has provided two superb mixes. The first features the full, snarling vocal from Maxim, complete with marauding bass, bleeping synth arpeggios, noise squalls and pistoning percussion combing to apocalyptic effect. While the second removes the vocals for an even deeper trip.
Liam Howlett and R&S founder Renaat Vanderpapiere’s friendship goes back a long way so they are both thrilled to work together on this release. As Liam says:
“I’ve always had massive respect for R&S records and Renaat since the start so its fuckin’ great to see a Prodigy tune, in the shape of Paula Temples heavy Roadblox remix, come out through the label”.
There aren’t that many acts out there that actually live up to the legend status, but Essex boys The Prodigy are one of them. For over twenty years they’ve been at the forefront of the UK music scene, never far from the top slots of festivals, or the charts. They’ve just hit the top spot again with the aggressive, and aggressively titled, The Day is My Enemy, which is no surprise given their rabid fanbase and the group’s previous for heading straight to the top of the pops.
One of the standouts of the new album is the Sleaford Mods featuring “Ibiza” which simmers with the kind of seven pint aggro we’ve come to expect from Mods frontman Jason Williamson. Below you can watch the track’s raucous video.
The Prodigy will release their new album “The Day Is My Enemy” on March 30th 2015. The first single is “Nasty” and will drop on February 19th 2015. Watch the official video below ana pre-order the album here.
Liam Howlett said: “I can’t tell you why this record came out so angry, I think it’s just inbuilt in me… It’s more about what I like music to do. I’ve always seen music I like as a form of attack. That’s what I use music for, it’s an attack. I didn’t plan this album to sound violent, it’s just the sound that came out of the studio, a kind of build up over the last 4 years… ‘Anger is an energy’, that’s a lyric which always resonated with me. The tension is buried deep in the music right from the first drop. It’s all about the sound having that sense of danger. That’s what The Prodigy sound is about.”
Back in October 1993, British electronic act The Prodigy released their sixth single “One Love”, which was the first single off the album Music For the Jilted Generation. The music video was created by Hyperbolic Systems and featured computer generated graphics with occasional images of the band members dancing along tribal figures.In 1995, “One Love” (along with Voodoo People) was included in the soundtrack for the movie Hackers, starring Angelina Jolie.
