The Prodigy – Firestarter (Alvin Risk Remix)
On the heels of last month’s Zeds Dead and Noisia remixes of The Prodigy, OWSLA-adept Alvin Risk has reworked “Firestarter,” the iconic track off of The Prodigy’s fabled third album The Fat of the Land. Preserving the gothic overtone of the legendary single, Alvin Risk ramps up the tempo to 170bpm for a drumstep/drum ‘n’ bass production just as menacing as the original. The Prodigy’s influence on Alvin Risk is quite clear, and thus it only makes sense that he pays tribute to the famed group by remixing one of their biggest singles. Risk’s remix is part of the official reissue of The Fat of the Land, released on XL Recordings.
