The Chemical Brothers Artist Snapshot:

The music of the Chemical Brothers, a pair of DJs who helped popularize the "Big Beat" electronic subgenre in the '90s, has the heft of rock, the groove of club music, and the spirit of experimentation that lifts all boats. Through their collaborations with rockers both massive (the Gallagher brothers of Oasis) and vaguely avant-garde (Mercury Rev), Tom Rowland and Ed Simons have helped break down the walls between rock and dance music. On "Setting Sun," one of their biggest hits, the Chemical Brothers fused elements straight out of the Beatles with electronic dance music's sonic dimensions to create something powerful and timeless, groundbreaking yet accessible.

Product Notes

For years before the release of Exit Planet Dust, the production duo of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons were cranking out slabs of the biggest sounds around on the U.K. label Junior Boys'' Own. Before screeching guitars and massive breakdowns were par for the course in dance music, they were unleashing monsters like "Chemical Beats" and "Song to the Siren"; their distorted beats and rock mentality were years ahead of their time. And, not surprisingly, they still hold up today, collected and rereleased, along with several newer tracks, on Exit Planet Dust. All the singles that established the trademark Chemicals sound are present, as are explorations of pop-song forms with vocalists Beth Orton ("Alive Alone") and Tim Burgess ("Life Is Sweet"). While a more evolved sound can be heard on their follow-up, Dig Your Own Hole, the roots of big beat can be found here. --Matthew Corwine
