Block rockin' beats! The bombastic big beat sounds of the Chemical Brothers underground are set to be immortalized in a best of collection, due out on September 2nd. Titled Brotherhood, the Brothers will collect 14 tracks of historical data, in the form of songs, some of which might have colored your past.
And why have just one set of tracks, when you can have two? The second disc, titled Electronic Battle Weapons, is a set of experimental tracks. Dig the words of the release announcement:
"Since 1996 Electronic Battle Weapons have acted as the laboratories for The Chems devious musical experiments and laid the rhythmic and melodic foundations for numerous tracks as well as providing some of the duos most formidable mixes. Until now Electronic Battle Weapons 1-9 have only been available on various limited formats and this is the first time they have been widely available."
The set will be released by Astralwerks.
All of this will be fronted by a single on August 19th. The song is called Midnight Madness, and will be a shorter version of the track of the same name on disc 2 of the set.
