{"key":"6116","name":"The Prodigy","bio":"The Prodigy are a Braintree, Essex, UK, electronic music group (aka Prodigy), formed by Liam Howlett (composition, keyboards), in 1990. They have sold over 20 million records worldwide, which is almost unequalled in dance music history.Their music consists of various styles ranging from rave and breakbeat hardcore in the early 90s to alternative rock and big beat, with punk vocal elements in later times. Other current band members include: Keith Flint (dancing, vocals), Maxim (MCing, vocals) and live guitarist Rob Holliday (Marilyn Manson, Gary Numan, Curve, Sulpher).Leeroy Thornhill (dancing, occasional live keyboards), was a member of the band from 1990 to 2000, as well was a female dancer \/ vocalist Sharky, who left the band during their early period. Other notable former live members include: Gizz Butt (guitar - English Dogs, Janus Stark, Sabbat) - toured with the band for three years throughout the late '90s, Kieron Pepper (drum - Realtv, Happy Gilmore) - played for the group from 1997 to 2007 (also contributing to the solo projects of Maxim and Flint's band, Flint), as well as Jim Davies (guitar - Pitchshifter), who also performed in Flint.The Prodigy first emerged on the underground rave scene in the early 1990, releasing their d\u00e9but LP Experience (1992) and have since then achieved immense popularity and worldwide renown. Some of their most popular songs include \"Charly\", \"Out of Space\", \"No Good (Start the Dance)\", \"Voodoo People\", \"Firestarter\", \"Breathe\" and \"Smack My Bitch Up\".The name displayed on album covers changed from 'The Prodigy' to 'Prodigy' between Music for the Jilted Generation and The Fat of the Land (1997) and back again with the release of Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (2004). However, Howlett has attested the title has always been 'The Prodigy' and the change was made only to fit within the displayed logo.Maxim originally began as an MC for the band before doing vocals on \"Poison\", a track on their second album Music for the Jilted Generation and then several others on The Fat of the Land. He remains a member, MCing at the live shows.Flint began as a dancer for the band before moving on to become a vocalist initially on the track \"Firestarter\" but then for several others on the third album The Fat of the Land. Flint is probably the most visually recognisable member of the band and considered by many to be the front-man though he has very little input to writing the songs. He still sings with the live show but has virtually no input on the albums however, he did write the single \"Baby's Got a Temper\".Following the relative commercial and critical failure of 2004's Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned the band released a greatest hits Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 before 2009's return to form Invaders Must Die.After the release and success of The Fat of the Land, Howlett was feeling down as he could not produce any songs up to standard up until one of his friends showed him the program Reason from Propellerhead Software. This program inspired him who instantly went to the studio and started producing tracks using it; he decided he did not want to use it for baselines though, as he prefers the analogue sound.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/6116_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"8387","name":"The Crystal Method","bio":"The Crystal Method is a Big beat\/Breaks duo comprising Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland. Formed in 1993, The Crystal Method is the most recent stop in a string of projects that led them from their native Las Vegas (and some forgettable four-track stabs at Vocal jazz music), to the early-'90s L.A. rave scene. Drawn in by its youthful idealism, Jordan and Kirkland became absorbed by L.A.'s underground club culture and began knocking out tracks inspired by their experiences. On the strength of one of their demos, The Crystal Method signed to Steve Melrose and Justin King's City of Angels imprint in 1994, and their debut single, Keep Hope Alive, appeared soon after. The title was in reference to L.A.'s waning rave scene (burdened by constant police pressure and a string of random violent incidents) and became something of an anthem due to the endless barrage of remixes and alternate versions that appeared. The pair's demand to be taken seriously as a band (as opposed to the enforced anonymity of most techno acts, and something of a new concept for American dance producers) extended to incessant live performances, and The Crystal Method's increasing popularity both in the clubs and among radio jocks led to a deal with Geffen affiliate Outpost Recordings in 1996. The group's debut LP, Vegas \u2013 an unabashed party record bathed in acid, funk, rock, and big beat hip-hop \u2013 appeared in mid-1997 and sold very well. The follow-up Tweekend was released four years later, and the duo inaugurated a series of mix albums (Community Service) in 2002. Third album Legion of Boom followed in 2004. The strength of their debut single Keep Hope Alive - now one of the most-remixed dance tracks - saw them signed to Outpost Recordings. Their debut album Vegas was released in 1997 and achieved significant mainstream success with its blend of electronic, rock and hip-hop influences. A re-working of Trip Like I Do featuring rock band Filter appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Spawn and achieved significant radio airplay.Their second album, Tweekend, was released in 2001, and featured guest appearances from guitarist Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave) and singer Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver). This was followed in 2002 by a mix CD entitled Community Service. Their third studio album, Legion of Boom, followed in 2004, and Community Service II was released in 2005. The Crystal Method also wrote the score and produced the soundtrack for the film London (2006). And work has begun on a second movie score, After is its current title.They had 4 songs on the FIFA '98: Road To World Cup Video Game: More, Now Is The Time, Keep Hope Alive and Busy Child. In 2002 The Crystal Method's single Name of the Game was the theme song and featured in the credits of the hit video game Splinter Cell. Also, the track Born Too Slow appeared in the demo and full version of the game Need for Speed: Underground. The PSX game Nitrous Oxide (N2O) features the Vegas album in its entirety as the soundtrack.In 2008 they teamed up with Nike to release a compilation album, Drive, featuring a 45 minute seamless mix of some of their most famous songs and remixes. This set, with its constant BPM, was aimed at long distance runners. Drive also features some new tracks.The Crystal Method also wrote the theme tune to the Fox tv series Bones staring David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel and it's become a big dance floor hit in the UK.Their official homepage is http:\/\/www.thecrystalmethod.com\/ and they're blogging at http:\/\/www.myspace.com\/thecrystalmethod too.Here on last.fm, the artist TCM is an alias for The Crystal Method.

{"key":"8550","name":"Booka Shade","bio":"Even by Booka Shade's unusually frenetic standards, the past 12 months have been intense. Since the release of their fourth album, \u2018More!\u2019, the Berlin-based duo, Arno Kammermeier and Walter Merziger, have been touring almost non-stop. And loving every minute of it.Personal highlights, such as performing live on BBC Radio 1, to help celebrate legendary radio DJ Annie Nightingale's 40th broadcasting anniversary, or rocking Europe\u2019s foremost electronic music event, Sonar, capped a whirlwind year which included tours of Australia, Brazil, the UK and the US (including a show at Colorado's iconic Red Rocks amphitheatre).One of those rare electronic music acts who channel the spirit and sounds of underground techno, but who can rock any festival crowd, Booka Shade, increasingly, find themselves winning over new fans across the rock and dance music tribes. Late last year, for instance, as they prepared for a winter tour of Australia - with the mixed rock \u2018n\u2019 dance festival, Big Day Out - Booka Shade were voted one of the world\u2019s Top 5 live acts by the cutting-edge electronic music hub, Resident Advisor. That perfectly illustrates how, in 2011, they transcend borders and genres. In a way, that broad appeal is no surprise. Yes, Booka Shade make dance music, but it is dance music which audibly absorbs influences from everywhere: classical, rock, jazz, dubstep. Throughout their 25 years making music together, Arno and Walter have found it impossible to restrict themselves to one set sound or scene. Early on, back in their native Saarbruecken, they made electronic-pop, as Planet Claire, later - having been seduced by Frankfurt's then vibrant club scene - they released numerous underground dance tracks, including the huge crossover hit, 'Una Musica Senza Ritmo', as Degeneration. By the mid 1990s, bored with formulaic club music, they decided to start working as movie soundtrack composers and (rather bizarrely) producers-for-hire, writing pop hits for German major labels. That turned out to be a rather depressing period, musically. One they would sooner forget. Indeed, it wasn\u2019t until 2002, when Booka Shade moved to Berlin and formed the label\/ production house, Get Physical Music - with M.A.N.D.Y and the then Groove Magazine editor, Thomas 'DJ T' Koch - that Arno and Walter finally felt that they had total musical freedom. It was a creative rebirth. \"Before,\" says Arno, of their time as pop producers, \"we didn't give a shit. Now, every note counts.\"The story since then is one that many of you will know. Under Booka Shade\u00b4s production aegis, Get Physical became one of modern Berlin's key dance music labels, while, on their own artist albums, \u2018Memento\u2018, \u2018Movements\u2019, \u2018The Sun & The Neon Light\u2018 and most recently 'More!'. They also became highly sought after remixers, lending their production magic to respected artists such as; Depeche Mode, Moby, Yello, Hot Chip, Roxy Music, Kings Of Leon, Tiga, Dave Gahan and The Knife. Booka Shade had developed a uniquely melodic and emotionally rich brand of contemporary techno. This was club music, but club music built to last. \"This sounds basic, but it's all about expressing how you feel, your personality,\" says Arno. \"Anybody can produce a nice, functional club track, but to produce something personal - music that is the essence of who you are - that is much more difficult. And it gets more difficult the further we go with Booka Shade.\u201dWalter, the production brains of the outfit, nods: \"We've produced thousands of tracks together. By now, we have an almost psychic musical connection. But we're still constantly interrogating what we do. Is it fresh? Is it different? When you stop questioning your work, it's time to give up.\"It was this constant questioning, which, with 'More!', led Booka Shade to rethink their approach. In contrast to previous albums, it was built from the dance floor up. Every track, from the pixelated ear-worm, 'Donut', to that ethereal rave anthem, 'Regeneration' (which reached No.2 in the Beatport chart), started out as a killer club groove which Arno and Walter then worked around. It received reams of positive press and an iTunes Top 20 chart placing, but, finally, it is time to draw that era to a close. Fourth single, \u2019Scaramanga\u2019, released in May 2011, will be the last salvo from the 'More!' sessions.It's a fresh start for Booka Shade in other areas, too. After almost 10 years, Arno, Walter and DJ T recently handed over control of Get Physical to their co-founders Philipp Jung and Patrick Bodmer (aka M.A.N.D.Y)and Peter Hayo. Rest assured: there was no drama. No falling out. And Arno and Walter are still making music with M.A.N.D.Y (check the new DJ-mix 'Body Language Vol.10' for a preview of their latest collaboration, 'Home'). Elsewhere, look out for fresh dates in Asia, Europe and the US, and, of course, a host of Booka Shade festival appearances through summer 2011.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8550_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"10,000 - 30,000"}

{"key":"9123","name":"Pantha du Prince","bio":"Pantha du Prince, also known as Hendrik Weber, is a German minimal artist signed to Rough Trade Records. His music is often characterised by a hypnotic, intricate combination of melodic chimes and dark, heavy techno beats, but does not confine itself to a single sound or strain of minimal techno. Arrangements are lush and textural, energising yet melancholy; a plethora of sounds and ideas unified by a consistent underlying tech-house beat. Dreaming music.Also known as Panthel and Gl\u00fchen 4.(2) German techno producer Hendrik Weber recorded under numerous monikers over the years, including Gl\u00fchen 4 and Panthel, yet Pantha du Prince became his most well known and celebrated. Weber aligned with Dial \u2013 a Hamburg-based experimental techno label helmed by Carsten Jost, Turner, and Lawrence \u2013 to release his Pantha du Prince material, which is characterized by its downcast and dark tone, as well as by its minimal and experimental tendencies. He made his debut as Pantha du Prince with a four-track 12\" release, Nowhere (2002), followed a couple years later by a full-length CD\/double LP, Diamond Daze (2004). The album garnered considerable acclaim, with some critics gleefully pointing out Weber's affinity for late-'80s British shoegaze bands such as Slowdive, Moose, Ride, and My Bloody Valentine. His affinity for Detroit techno (\u00e0 la Carl Craig) and minimal techno (Chain Reaction) was evident as well. Following a remix 12\" (Butterfly Girl Versions, 2005) and a one-off 12\" of new material (Lichten\/Walden, 2006), Weber released his second Pantha du Prince full-length, This Bliss (2007), which again garnered considerable acclaim. For instance, Spex and Groove \u2013 both German techno magazines \u2013 crowned This Bliss with their Record of the Month awards, while indie tastemaker Pitchfork gave the album a favorable review stateside. Weber switched to Rough Trade for Black Noise (2010), featuring guest appearances from Tyler Pope (!!!) and Noah Lennox (Animal Collective). The likes of Four Tet, Hieroglyphic Being, and Animal Collective provided remixes for XI Versions of Black Noise, released the following year. In 2013, he released his fourth album, Elements of Light \u2013 a collaboration with Norway's Bell Laboratory. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/9123_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}
