The Prodigy – Experience

29.00

The Prodigy are 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 are 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. Experience is their debut album, released in 1992 in XL Recordings. Apart from Liam Howlett – who was the sole composer – of the additional three members at that time, only Maxim Reality actually contributed to the album, performing the vocals on the last track.
