It’s nice when groups connect the aesthetic dots for us. This afternoon, noise-rap troublemakers Death Grips posted a hectic, disorienting remix of “Firestarter,” the feral techno-rock song that was a massive hit for rave popularizers the Prodigy in 1996. And now that I think about it, the Keith Flint mouth-foaming and Liam Howlett steamroller production of the Fat Of The Land-era Prodigy could’ve easily been a huge Death Grips influence. Download the remix below.

This is probably a good place to point out that the Prodigy are so, so underrated. Music For The Jilted Generation? You need that album.
