In superstar DJ terms, the Chemical Brothers are old-school purists. Not for them the Skrillex spaceship, the Flying Lotus cuboid net or the Calvin Harris approach of marking every drop with several grand’s worth of pyro and demanding “put your hands in the air right now!” like he’s doing over a Barclays.
No, they’re of the pressing-boxes-in-the-dark school, eschewing Ronson’s special-guest bonanzas for taped appearances from Noel Gallagher (Setting Sun), Q-Tip (Galvanize) and Kele Okereke (Believe), letting their monstrous beats provide the fireworks. At one point a gigantic clockwork robot is lowered from the heavens as if to mock the EDM wedge-pocketers and their ridiculous onstage toys.
