Bass Legends with the Prodigy's Leeroy Thornhill on Saturday 18th November 2017
The Prodigy's Leeroy Thornhill plays an exclusive DJ set at the Townhouse.
Leeroy was a big rave fan at the time when he joined The Prodigy along with Keith Flint after they met Liam Howlett at a local rave club. Both were dancers for the band's live show.
He is also great dancer with incredible footwork. (Most of his dance moves come from watching James Brown videos). He makes it look real easy, but chances are you'll never be able to move like this guy. He was also into the breakdancing phase that swept the world in the mid-eighties.
His style of dance can be described as a 'technical running on the spot'. This style of dance has reportedly had a major influence in the development of the Melbourne Shuffle underground rave dance style, and thus Thornhill was interviewed for the underground dance documentary 'Melbourne Shuffler' to talk about his dancing.
He was the most normal looking guy compared to the rest of the band, he was just as or even crazier than the others. According to several Prodigy articles on NME and Melody Maker, he was probably the most perverted and sick one of them all. Basically he was not afraid to show his true feelings, or enjoy being in a techno band that rocks the hardest. He was definitely one to watch on stage. He really added depth to an already insane group. Usually when the band were interviewed he used to be the second quietest right after Liam.
Leeroy spent 10 years with the Prodigy world wide touring, live events, T.V etc. but in in spring 2000 he finally decided to left the Prodigy to concentrate on his own productions and re launching his DJ career which is what he had been doing in recent years.
Leeroys DJing has taken him over all of Europe and Ireland and also extensively in USA. Some stand out, gigs include DJing before Finlaye Quay in London and Primal Scream gig in Dublin.
Leeroys music style is a mix of tuff breaks, old skool samples and electro known as Miami bass. A style Leeroy picked whilst touring with the Prod in mid 90's Miami. This is basically a great mash up of Party breaks full of Funk to Rock the floor and heavy on the electro edge.
Production wise Leeroy has been a very busy boy remixing and producing lots of international talent including. David Gray, Lee Scratch Perry, Kool Keith, Moby, Shades Of Rhythm, Dr. Dooom and Southern Fly.
Music Genres: Bass Music, Electro, Electronic, Funky House, House
