Discography

One Love

One Love was the first single from the album Music for the Jilted Generation, and their sixth single.

One Love
UK chart position: 8

Group's 6th single and 1st from their [then upcoming] second album "Music For The Jilted Generation". The song peaked at number eight on the UK Singles Chart and number five on the UK Dance Singles Chart. It was also a top 30 hit in Sweden and Switzerland.

Liam initially released One Love and One Love (Jonny L remix) as 2 12" whitelabels known as Earthbound 1 & 2. Many of the DJ's who came across the whitelabels hailed them as 'the best whitelabel of the year' however when it was later known that it was Liam who was behind the music many of the so called 'underground' DJs stopped playing it since they thought that The Prodigy had long since sold themselves out and become purely commercial. 

One Love in particular features rather innovative programming and loop-work in combination with sped-up tribal chants and orchestral strings. Single is also most famous for its extensive use of samples and elements from The Magi & Emanation's "Everybody Say Love" (The Prodigy even remixed it, prior to recording of this single). 

Liam had proved the underground DJs wrong and that he was still capable of producing pioneering dance music. A lot of the single's success was due to the strong b-side Rhythm of Life which many fans regard as one of The Prodigy's best tracks ever.

"Original Mix" version of "Full Throttle" (featured on this Single) is the only version, to have Mark Hamill's "'We're going in full throttle" quote sample from "STAR WARS" being unchanged.

In the official Prodigy Biography, Liam has said that in retrospect he now wishes that 'Full Throttle' had been the A-side of this release, not 'One Love'.

The version that appeared on The Prodigy's second studio album Music for the Jilted Generation was the shorter edit version due to Liam having to trim some running time off the album to allow it to fit on the master CD.

Cover art

One of The Prodigy's only two official releases to feature Ultra-Heavy Pushed-Up version of the group's original logo (only other is "No Good (Start The Dance)")

The ring on the cover is made by 'Stussy' and is solid silver (925).

Criminal Justice Act

Released in 1993, there started to be lots of discussion about forthcoming Section 63 of the Criminal Justice Act — a piece of legislation that gave police extra powers to break-up raves, and described the music played there with the famous phrase: “emission of a succession of repetitive beats.”  Therefore there was also a long write up as "special announcement" in sleeve about raves and "criminal justice bill".

Special announcement

Remember a few years ago? Remember the raves with the pumping bass, the volume at it’s best. The atmosphere kicking, the people friendly and free! But then the police had to put their oar in, the government then have their say, ‘turn down the music, noise pollution’. What a loud of bollocks. If you’ve been to the latest raves then you’ll know the score. What’s going on? You pay between 10-25 quid, queue up for about 45 minutes whilst having to put up with the old bill eyeing you up and down as if you’re some sort of mass murderer, and once you’ve been searched and had your shoes and socks removed, you then walk into the grounds to be met by thousands of police and the music at about 2 D.B.’s, you might as well have bought your Walkman. At every large rave lately the department of health and environment are there with their precious little toys called D.B. meters making sure the volume doesn’t go above a certain level. For example, if you went to Universe on 13/08/93, Resurrection on 14/08/93 or Living Dream 6/08/93 then you’ll know what we mean.

All we can do is apologize to you all for the very bad sound quality. But what can we do? You can’t blame the promoters because they are doing an excellent job of bringing you the best quality sound system (even though you don’t get to hear it at it’s best). Excellent lighting, D.Js. You can’t fault them if they did try to turn up the volume then the authorities have two methods of getting them to turn it down – 1. They can revoke the license and close down the party and then ban any further events by the offending organization. 2. Impose ridiculous fines, which could be in excess of £25,000 and revoke any future licenses. Now you know why these events are becoming more and more of an effort to go to, and why they’re so quiet when you do. So there’s no one left to blame but the authorities. Bollocks to the authorities, you can’t stop us, we’re gonna keep the dance scene strong even if the world isn’t. This is your day and no one can take it away from you. The dance scene is far to big to just disappear.

Respect – Liam, Leeroy, Maxim & Keith. – 1993.

Soundtrack

In 1995, "One Love" (along with "Voodoo People") was included in the soundtrack for the movie Hackers, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie.
