Overview

When it comes to block-rockin' bombast, the blokes in Prodigy are not ones to let themselves be outdone. So it makes sense that Prodigy's beat junkie, Liam Howlett, has one-upped excellent DJ mix CDs by the Chemical Brothers (BROTHERS GONNA WORK IT OUT) and Fatboy Slim (ON THE FLOOR AT THE BOUTIQUE) with this overpowering ultra-mix. Though it doesn't feature any new Prodigy tracks (the band is currently in the studio working on a new album), DIRTCHAMBER is all about the unholy marriage of techno, rap, and rock that made them famous. Howlett transplants us to the floor of some mythical London club, where he rocks the crowd with a diverse body movin' mix of hip-hop, techno, punk rock, old-school funk, Brit-pop, and soul. Here Grandmaster Flash, the Charlatans UK, Jane's Addiction, and Tim Dog get down together like one big, happy family in funky love. In just over an hour, 50 classic cuts are spliced, diced, and strung together -- from classics like Babe Ruth's "The Mexican" and the Sex Pistols' "New York" to '90s mastercuts by Fatboy Slim, the Chemical Brothers, DJ Mink, Frankie Bones, and, of course, Prodigy. The Lo-Fidelity Allstars might know "how to operate with a blown mind," but here's how to rock out with a short attention span. And rock out it does!
