RIP Keith Flint - The Prodigy

category: offtopic [glöplog]
 
By now I expect you will all have heard the sad news coming from the UK today.

I'm pretty sure that he was an influence within the demoscene - particularly with earlier prods released back in the late 80s and early 90s that sampled from some of The Prodigy's earlier works, all in good faith, I guess.

I guess also their music influenced many current demoscene musicians as well.

Thoughts ?

Obvs. I wrote a Prodigy inspired track a few years ago that's unreleased and pretty bad ass. If anyone fancies making a tribute demo or something hit me up at pandasonics @at@ gangstermail .com

I'm gutted. The Prodigy were a huge influence on me around the mid-90's, and you can probably find echoes of their first three albums in almost everything I've done since, even if those echoes aren't always obvious at all.

What can I say. A true musical icon, up there with the very greatest. Rest in peace.

Such a big loss. He was one of the driving forces in my musical development into electronic music. Those first albums were decades ahead of their time. I tried for years to make stuff similar before I discovered freetekno. RIP.

If I can participate in any way I'm game if you fancy a co-up.

RIP Keith

obviously i also did a prodigy "megamix" XM in my early days, not released anywhere, just kindof mashing up 6-8 of their songs really badly. i may still have it somewhere, not sure.

mad props to the band, they were the much needed middle ground between rockers and ravers back in the 90's. i hope Liam will continue though, even if they kinda went with a pendulum-ish tone in the past 10 years, they still kept something from the old spirit in there.

A multicoop music disk could be possible I suppose, letting any musicians with their prodigy inspired tracks or remixes contribute, a kind of communal effort from the demoscene to pay all of our respects. Just thinking aloud now though.

@keito: yeah we're using an older track of yours now. Great one. Can we reconnect too btw? I won't nag you like the coked up version of myself 10 years back ;)

I still have few +20 year old remixes/mash-ups of Firestarter, Smack My Bitch Up etc. as Protracker modules in my HD, so if you need any tunes for the music disk I can provide some tracks. Also check out the mighty Prodigy tunes from Da Jormas, they did some serious stuff back in the days ;)

This was really sad news this week. R.I.P. Keith. I owe you so many great moments in my life.
