Remember “Firestarter” (single, 1996), “Breathe” and the controversial “Smack My Bitch Up”? Yep, 1997… the year electronic music—electronica as they called it then—was supposed to break massive into the mainstream. Big beat was leading the charge with groups like Prodigy, the Chemical Brothers, and Fluke. Well, the Prodigy’s The Fat of the Land did as advertised, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and selling 10 million albums after 18 months.
Britain’s Daniel Pearson drew wide praise in the UK for his debut, Satellites, being hailed as ““Britain’s best new singer-songwriter” by Allgigs, while Uncut celebrated the album as ““Route 66 meets the M1… bittersweet and contemplative”. Now this fine new talent has a new album on tap, Mercury State, set to release a year from his debut.
