Need Some1

by Andrew MacGregor

The Prodigy: “Need Some1” - 3 mins 20s

It's safe to say The Prodigy have yet to mellow with age. While their Nineties contemporaries enjoy more genteel pursuits (cheesemaker, for instance), Maxim, Keith Flint, and Liam Howlett continue on their quest for sonic bedlam, with latest release ‘Need Some1' brimming with hot-wired malice.

Paco Raterta's accompanying promo mainlines the track's abrasive synths and buzzsaw guitar riffs and embarks on a Manila-wide rampage, the Filipino capital's humid streets playing host to a blurry rave as the cast positively throttle their inhibitions. It's not for the faint-hearted, but when have the Prodigy even been about that?
