Genre: Electronica

Release date:

The Chemical Brother's second album, 'Dig Your Own Hole', was perhaps not the best electronic album of the 1990s,  but it was one of the most representative. Released on 7th April 1997, the album united many of the dance music trends of the decade, while simultaneously blazing brilliant new trails for other acts to follow.

With the release of their debut album, 1995’s ‘Exit Planet Dust’, The Chemical Brothers were still seen in many quarters as representing the lingering remnants of big beat: a fun, if rather shallow, mid ’90s dance phenomenon that combined rock music structures with electronic production. After ‘Dig Your Own Hole’, however, it was impossible to see The Chemical Brothers as anything but their own thing. It's a legacy that has stayed with them to this day. Open up a new Chemical Brothers album in 2018 and you genuinely don’t know what to expect, from shiny trance fusions to soil-worn psychedelia. This is the legacy of ‘Dig Your Own Hole’, an album that radiated ambition and adventure, as Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons matured as producers, growing up without ever growing old.
