I scored a copy of the new Prodigy album the other day, and it ROCKS!!!! I must say that, despite my die-hard love for The Prodigy, I was a little worried that they had already reached their apex. Nothing could have been further from the truth. “Invaders Must Die” continues to really push the limits of Liam Howlett’s ingenuity, and draw from a diverse musical background of both electronic and acoustic musical genres (hell, Dave Grohl even plays drums on one track). The Prodigy managed to stay true to their old school electronica roots, and signature sound, while moving further into the rock-electronica fusion genre that they did so much to create. It is worth mentioning as well that the two remixes on the “Omen” single release are FIRE as well. Though that is to be expected from Noisia and Chase and Status. The album is scheduled for release in the States on March 3rd, GO BUY IT!!!!!

So a while ago there was a remix contest thing for one of the songs from “The Fountain“. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should, it’s incredible. Darren Aronofsky was behind it, the same guy that made “Pi” and “Requiem for a Dream”. At any rate, the music is equally impressive. It was written by Clint Mansell, and preformed by the Kronos Quartet and Mogwai, all of whom are fucking incredible. It’s a sort of coherent classical score all the way through, with varying degrees of rock instrumentation. Just buy it, you’ll be happy.
Anyway, they put up the multitracks of one of the songs, “Stay With Me”, so that people could remix it and post it back up on the site. I don’t think there was a reward or anything, but i did it anyway. The problem was, I was kind of behind the bandwagon on this, so they had abandoned the site by the time I was done. Anyway, I like my version, so I’m putting it up here for people to listen to.
LISTEN: Stay With Me (Rex Riot Remix)
Here is a preview of the most recent project that I’ve been involved with. It’s called “$low lori$”, after this tight ass animal. The music is mainly dance remixes, but not cop-out dance remixes, I think we’ve done a good job of putting a new spin on it. CHECK IT OUT! This one is a remix of “Agenda Suicide” by The Faint. There’s more to come.
