The well established and long running Back to Mine compilation CD series has taken another creative twist and turn with Liam Howlett of The Prodigy being responsible for the latest release. ‘Back To Mine’ mixed by Liam Prodigy will be released on 30 January 2006 through DMC Records.
2005 was a huge year from The Prodigy, marking a return from the wilderness for this legendary dance outfit. They released their critically acclaimed greatest hits album ‘Their Law’, and played a sellout Australian tour. Now The Prodigy’s iconic frontman Liam Howlett (affectionally known as Liam Prodigy) has stepped into a new sphere with this unique compilation.
In a groundbreaking career spanning 15 years, The Prodigy are unrivalled as dance music’s most scene-shaping artists. With 15 million albums sold worldwide, no other act have been as successful at merging a rebellious punk ethos with the dynamic energy of rave. Their massive singles ‘Smack My Bitch Up’, ‘Firestarter’ and ‘Breathe’ all reached no.1 in the UK charts, whilst their 1997 LP ‘Fat of the Land’ was no.1 in a staggering 27 countries simultaneously.
Musical renegades, The Prodigy took what they wanted from rock, dance and pop and spat out the rest, winning the hearts of both underground and mainstream music lovers alike with their irresistible hooks, catchy samples and always inventive breakbeats. Such was the band’s crossover appeal, that ‘Breathe’ was even voted Single of the Year by readers of metal magazine Kerrang.
‘Back to Mine’ sees Liam deliver another rule-breaking slice of sonic anarchy to the world. Featuring the exclusive new Prodigy offering ‘Wake the Fuck Up’, which is only found on ‘Back to Mine, the release mixes up the balls-out rock of Queens of the Stone Age, with hip hop renegades Public Enemy and Wu Tang Clan star Method Man - even Dolly Parton’s timeless country folk classic ‘Jolene’, pops up in this eclectic mash-up. Lay back and listen to this one to experience a piece of Liam's world.
