‘Dig Your Own Hole’ by THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS
Released 7 April 1997 – 20 years ago…

Although they didn’t look as party animals themselves, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons
created smoking dance trance firework to soundtrack every rave in the late nineties,
I know, I was there and their second album DIG YOUR OWN HOLE still feels today as
their best and most adventurous, yet accessible achievement ever. Tons of rockin’ beats.

What the press said…

ROLLING STONE
“The British DJ duo shows that playing other people’s records — sliced, diced and blown to ingeniously reconfigured bits — is a valid form of composition, and dance music is a matter
of both mind and body…”

ALL MUSIC
“The Chemical Brothers might not push forward into self-consciously arty territories like some of their electronic peers, but they have more style and focus, constructing a blindingly innovative and relentlessly propulsive album that’s an exhilarating listen…”

BBC
“Tom and Ed can harvest up the minds and mess up the hearing of a whole new crowd of converts, and remains an immense, far out and most staggering work. A key text. Literally amazing.”

SPUTNIK MUSIC
‘I like to imagine Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons as two mad and brilliant chemists who play with musical machines in their laboratory and set free monstrous things, kind of like Doctor Octopus in the Spider-Man mythology…”

Here are three highlights…
