The Prodigy are currently in the middle of a triumvirate of performances at Warehouse Project, which will culminate in what will surely be a special evening with Shy FX, Stamina MC, Hype, DJ Gedo and Mega Bitch tomorrow. The veteran big beaters have already smashed out epic sets alongside the likes of Jaguar Skills and Caspa this week and the word on the street is that the Essex trio are every bit as incredible to watch as they were when they started back in 1992.
Surely one of electronic music’s most pioneering acts of all time, it is widely regarded that without Messrs Flint, Howlett and Reality we would not have enjoyed artists such as The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and a plethora of other household DJ’s. If you were part of the rave scene in the 1990’s then you will need no introduction to The Prodigy and their five studio albums to date have all received immense acclaim all over the world.
Still not sold? Take a look at this simply faultless Breathe performance from Tokyo in 1998. If that doesn’t whet the appetite then we don’t know what does…
The Prodigy are preparing to release their sixth album ‘How To Steal a Jet Fighter’ next year and have already been confirmed for Sonisphere Festival 2014, underlining their continued commitment to cutting edge dance music. Their advancing years only seems to add to their appeal, there is surely no dance act around with a better mix of experience and the ability to blow crowds away with their energetic performances.
With this in mind, everyone here at Young Academic is brimming with excitement at the prospect of being able to report from Warehouse Project tomorrow – as The Prodigy embark on the third of their performances at Victoria Park. They have hand-picked their support and the bill for tomorrow is simply mouth-watering….
