The Prodigy 1991

90s Dance Subculture

90s Dance Subculture

By Gavin Tate & Lauren Burnett

The Chemical Brothers were a respected force in the mid nineties and not just in the dance world. Even guitars bands were massively into them with the likes of Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Richard Ashcroft (The Verve), and Tim Burgess (The Charlatans) contributing guest vocals on some of their key singles.

They were widely known for their amazing light shows and projections during festival slots and big indoor arena tours.

I recently watched them headline Rock en Seine festival in Paris. They’re artistic, disturbing and wonderful the way they communicate with a 90s generation compared to the generation of today, which shows just how well this act has evolved and transcended through the years.

The fact that they were loved by guitar bands as well as the contemporary DJ world, they were asked to support Oasis at their mammoth Knebworth shows where they were exposed to an audience of 250,000 over two nights in 1996.

The Prodigy were another leading name on the British dance movement in the early nineties.

Their early singles ‘Outta Space’ and ‘Charly’ soon became club anthems and assured them their rightful place in the charts.

By the mid nineties they had progressed so much that they had taken charge to the point of becoming festival headliners and a menacing force having a number 1 hit in the UK and Europe with ‘Breath’ and were one of the most talked about dance acts of their time.

They were another act who were asked to support Oasis at their landmark Knebworth shows and by then the word was out among the indie generation allowing them a whole new additional market and fan base.
