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.
