The Prodigy are back with their sixth studio album, ‘The Day Is My Enemy’, with its foxy and nocturnal hunting vibes.
Weighing in at 56 minutes of Prodigy's classic assaulting industrial/rave crossover, this album shouldn't disappoint fans. Tracks such as 'Nasty' possess all the Prodigy trademark beats, dub reggae references and noisy electro tricks, but there are few surprises for the listener too. 'Ibiza' brings contemporary electronic punks, Sleaford Mods into the melee, Jason Williamson lending his relentless commentary to the track's vocals.
The electronic instrumentation on ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ is decidedly more computer game-like than other Prodigy LPs utilizing what might be 8-bit noises, or effects that sound like 8-bit, as opposed to the more familiar Acid House vs Distortion palette. Fittingly ironic perhaps, given the influence their music had on game soundscapes of the 1990s and early 21st Century.
Watch the video for 'Wild Frontier' below, continuing the night-time mammal theme.
