So glad to hear Prodigy back, and not just back but knocking it out of the park. No evolution, no reaching into territory they have no place reaching — just pure, unadulterated breaks, distorted guitar, yelling and, of course, a crazy ass video. God bless Liam Howlett.
Ghostface returns with the visuals to his “Love Don’t Live Here” track. Fresh from his newly-released album 36 Seasons, Pretty Toney’s storytelling “Love Don’t Live Here” video features the always awesome Michael K.

In 2008 I was sent by the now-defunct BPM magazine to Berlin and Vienna to document the emerging Future Bass movement percolating from the dank basements of those Teutonic capitals.
