In 1999, The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett released The Dirtchamber Sessions, a sprawling 50-track DJ mix initially produced for the BBC’s Breezeblock show. Regarded by many as one of the best DJ mixes ever released, Howlett told Big Shot that he’s thinking about releasing the follow-up next year.
“I think there’s a definite demand for people who’d like to hear another one. I really enjoyed doing it, and it came at the right time,” Howlett told us. “It was during the time after Fat of the Land where we had finished touring and I had time on my hands. I think next year would be a good time to put another one out. It all started as a Radio 1 mix for Mary Anne Hobbs. The original version had The beatles’ “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,” and we couldn’t get clearance for those tracks. The next one could be interesting.”
