In 1997 British electronic act The Prodigy took the world by storm by helping to pioneer the big beat scene with the release of Smack My Bitch Up off their third studio album The Fat of the Land. The video was a tantalizing twist, the lyrics struck major controversy among rights activists condemning violence against women. Flash forward to now, the song is an electronic classic that can hold itself among any of today’s new music. To celebrate the 15th anniversary, a deluxe edition and vinyl reissue will release on December 4th via XL Recordings, that include a remix by Major Lazer. The new track stays familiar to the original with a few complimentary breakdown’s and crescendo’s. A notable effort, but you can’t beat an original. To order visit here along with a listen below.
