The Chemical Brothers

big beat // funky electronica

This powerful duo debuted originally with the name “The Dust Brothers”, but an American group with the same name (later well-known for the Fight Club soundtrack) pressed some litigation and forced a change. Though mildly bitter, the british Chemical Brothers carried on, releasing their first album appropriately named Exit Planet Dust. Now, ten years later, the two release Push The Button, a break-rocking record exploring their trademark dance-rock-rap mix. Though “Galvanize” has gotten the first-single attention, it’s the sophisticated dance track “The Boxer” that rocks this record. Hard.
Sorry Fatboy, they’ve come a longer way, baby.

    This new record is BANGIN. I started to post this when I reviewed the record a couple weeks back, but opted for “Hold Tight London” and “Galvanize”. Want to peep those tracks? You can do it by clicking here. Excellent choice, Paul.

    I’m not crazy about this record, though “The Boxer” is certainly one of the best tracks. That and “Close Your Eyes” are the best, “Galvanize” is rubbish (Q-Tip continues with the terrible guests spots)–why get a guy known for being calm and cool on such a jump-jumpin’ track?

    I loves me some Chemical Brothers.

    I’ve just found your site through a link to a link to a link (as these things go) and it’s a great idea. Thanks for sharing music with us!

    I’ve personally bought loads of music based on MP3s I’ve downloaded. It can only be a good thing for good, original artists. So, again, I thank you.

    The feel-good Madchester, Acid House, Summer of Love vibe is back? It gets a little wonky in the middle but this is pretty hot overall.

    Nice site, fam.

    I love this blog… and would probably love this song *if it was still available* — as with many other links, says “page not found”… what gives???
