Weekend Rewind: The Prodigy – Poison

Released as The Prodigy‘s ninth single back in 1995, “Poison” was one of the stand out tracks off Music for the Jilted Generation and further reaffirmed that Liam Howlett is, in fact, god. Built from an array of samples deftly reconstructed by Howlett into a strange amalgamation of big beat vibes and infectious drum rolls “Poison” remains one of our favorite early The Prodigy tracks. Aided only by a hardware synth and not computer software, Howlett warped and distorted a variety of classic samples into one of the most iconic dance tracks of the Nineties. If uninspired electronica is your poison, then The Prodigy has the remedy.
