UK electronic group, main member Liam Howlett
Liam Howlett formed the electronic music group The Prodigy in Braintree, England in 1990. The members are Howlett, Keith Flint, Maxim. The group is considered one of the pioneers of the big beat genre, which rose to mainstream popularity starting in the 1990s, and have been called “the Godfathers of Rave.” The Prodigy has sold more than 25 million records and won numerous awards, including two Brit Awards. They’ve also been nominated for a Grammy Award two times. The Prodigy have released six studio album, starting with Experience in 1992. The group released The Day Is My Enemy in 2015.
Electronic music was a really magical thing back then in late 90's in specific areas in the U.K. This track is off the charts, it's one of those milestones that did the setup for something enormous to grow upon.... The lyrics, simpler than a little child's mutter, is about dancing on your own! And what better beat to do so!
I am all about those electronic explosive tracks (and Prodigy should be the first example to come in mind for that matter) that repeat one word or one phrase throughout their entire length, it's like you're watching a football game in the stadium and there's your singalong to support your team while bouncing with your mates!

No matter how much these guys might have been drown into drugs for years, "Poison" isn't about alcohol or drugs. No it's not dear friends. "Poison" is the rhythmical bomb, the grooving tune that hits your face like a tsunami, when these Big Beats lords decide to play some music.
