Chemical Brothers “Radio 1 Anti-Nazi Mix” (Big Beat/Breakbeat) [Music/Dj Mix/Review]

7/10

Year: 199x
Genre: Big Beat/Breakbeat
Album Versions: Discogs

Radio 1 Anti-Nazi Mix was a promotional mix album released in the UK in May 1997. It contained two discs: Disc 1 contains a mix named “Radio 1 Anti-Nazi Mix”; disc 2 contains an interview with journalist Peter Paphides, of which 38 answers (as 38 tracks) are included. The questions however are left out.

Being a numbered promotional release, it is quite rare nowadays.

This mix was the basis of what would later be released as Brothers Gonna Work It Out.

Its artwork, promotional status, and the idea of having the album one continuous track, is similar to their later In Glint album.

About

Tom & Ed met in history class at Manchester University in 1989. They started off as DJs known as “The 237 Turbo Nutters” (named after the number of their house on Dickenson Road in Manchester and a reference to their Blackburn raving days). They then opted for “The Dust Brothers” which they nicked from the L.A. producers of “Pauls Boutique” (as they thought they would never be famous). In 1995 they changed their name to “The Chemical Brothers” after the real Dust Brothers threatened to sue.

Their debut album “Exit Planet Dust” (10/10) from 1994 blow the underground dance/rave world away with their unique mix of modern breakbeats/big beats, classic hip hop beats and 1970’s funk/soul.
