No Good (Start the Dance), Smack My Bitch Up, Voodoo People, Poison
The Prodigy is an English electronic dance music band from Braintree, Essex, formed in 1990 by keyboardist and songwriter Liam Howlett. The band’s line-up has included MC and vocalist Maxim, dancer and vocalist Keith Flint (until his death in March 2019), dancer and live keyboardist Leeroy Thornhill (who left to pursue a solo career in 1999), and dancer and vocalist Sharky (1990–1991). Along with the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim, the Prodigy is credited as pioneers of the breakbeat-influenced genre big beat, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s. Howlett’s rock-inspired drum rhythms infused with electronic rave music beats/breaks were combined with Maxim’s omnipresent mystique, Thornhill’s shuffle dancing style and Flint’s modern punk appearance.
The Prodigy describes their style as “electronic punk”, being the pioneers in this rhythm, with a punk conceptual expression in many of their albums accompanied by strong and groundbreaking rhythms.
The Prodigy emerged in the underground rave scene in the early 1990s and achieved popularity and worldwide recognition with UK number one singles such as “Firestarter” and “Breathe”, both singles coming from their UK and US chart-topping album The Fat of the Land (1997). A third single from the album, “Smack My Bitch Up”, was also successful. They earned titles like “the premiere dance act for the alternative masses” and “the Godfathers of Rave”, and remain one of the most successful electronic acts of all time. They have sold an estimated 25 million records worldwide, and won numerous music awards during their career, including two Brit Awards for Best British Dance Act, three MTV Video Music Awards, two Kerrang! Awards, five MTV Europe Music Awards, and received two Grammy Award nominations.
No Tourists and death of Flint (2016–present)
The Prodigy’s seventh studio album, No Tourists, was released on 2 November 2018 under a new recording deal with BMG Rights Management. The deal reunited the group with Howlett’s song publishing, which BMG had acquired from EMI Music Publishing in 2012 as part of the Virgin Music catalog.
On 4 March 2019, Flint was found dead at his home in Essex, weeks after the band had toured Australia and New Zealand. The rest of the Prodigy’s tour dates were canceled.Following Flint’s death, fans began using the Twitter hashtag “Firestarter4Number1” on various social media platforms to get “Firestarter” to number one on the UK singles chart out of respect for Flint and to raise awareness of suicide among men. In August 2020, Howlett said that the Prodigy will continue. That Christmas Day, he confirmed that new music will be released at some point in 2021. Former member Leeroy Thornhill said that Howlett had been working on a new Prodigy album at the time of Flint’s death, and wishes to complete it as a tribute to Flint. On 10 February 2021, the band announced their plans to begin production on a documentary film about the band’s history, with a now unknown title and release date. It will be directed by long time collaborator Paul Dugdale and produced by Pulse Films.~Wikipedia
