Well, the moment of truth is finally here. One of the most eagerly anticipated albums in recent memory is live, in all its soccer-riot infused glory. The Day Is My Enemy is the 6th studio album from one of the groups that broke dance music in the USA around the time yours truly was still in high school. To celebrate, the mastermind, Liam Howlett himself is doing an AMA on the r/electronicmusic, Tuesday, March 31st at 11am PST. If you’ve got questions for him, definitely show up to that early and make sure you’re one of the first to ask, as that’s gonna get out of hand quickly.
You can get a full stream of it on iTunes & Spotify, but on Spotify there’s a bonus interview & playlist from Liam as well. This kind of extra content is exactly what’s going to differentiate the streaming service wars that are coming. Check it out on the Spotify app or click here for a web link. A full review of the album will be incoming shortly, but until then, put all of that into your face. As I said in my editorial a while back, the remixes coming from this album are going to be off the chain, just you wait and see. I don’t usually put quotes from other previews in my articles, but even The Guardian had this to say about it:
“The Prodigy have found their voice again and, in doing so, have actively plugged their music in to a continuum of bolshiness where punk syncs up with drum’n’bass, rock with hip-hop”
