Remember back in the late ’90s, when raves went from urban lofts to rural farms, bands like the Prodigy and Fatboy Slim were coming into their own and electronic music was supposed to be the next big thing? Electronic music was the future — a few decades into the future, though, as the recent rise of superstar EDM-ers like Skrillex, Deadmau5 and Avicii has shown. And its mainstream success has helped put the spotlight on less-established acts like Death Grips.

Death Grips complete that circle of life with their remix of ‘Firestarter,’ which might just be the Prodigy’s defining hit. In the hands of Death Grips, the tune is abstracted and slashed up into something that never would’ve found mainstream success. But thanks to pioneers like the Prodigy, bands like Death Grips can do just that — and still have the visibility to win over fans in both urban centers and rural communities alike.
