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.

@Keito is it mod or mp3?

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.

Sure Nytrik has me on FB if he want's to get in touch, no problem.

It's an mp3 mop.

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 ;)
