The Prodigy "won't go near" dubstep
The Prodigy are defiant that they won't be tempted to alter their sound according to current trends in music and will remain loyal to the style they're known for.
In a new interview with Radio 1's Zane Lowe, the 'Breathe' stars were asked about the widespread popularity of dubstep, which has influenced all kinds of artists from Britney Spears to nu-metal heroes Korn, and they revealed that it's simply not for them. Liam Howlett said:
"All the dubstep stuff that's around, we're loving it, but that's not our game. We won't go near it. We've always had respect for the masters who do their game, those boys who do that sound [dubstep], that's what they do. We know what we do, and when any Prodigy record hits it'll still feel fresh."
Despite not wanting to flirt with the flavour of the week, the dance trio are working on new material and plan to debut it at Download Festival later this year, which they are confirmed to headline:
"We're only doing one UK show which is Download, which we've just announced. That's basically a time when we're going to be playing some new songs, finding our sound is the next stage of The Prodigy."
"We've got lots of ideas down. With any Prodigy album we'll record about 20 tunes, and then pick the best ones. At the moment we've got a bunch of ideas, and we're still developing the sound."
