I was a social outcast growing up – discovering electronic music culture and artists like @the_prodigy made me feel for the first time that the world had to reckon with me instead of the other way around.

Wow RIP Keith Flint. I remember listening to “breathe” on MTV when they used to show music videos and i was so enthralled by the music video. Went and bought their album “the fat of the land” and was obsessed ever since. Sending love to his friends and family.
