Album Review: The Chemical Brothers - Born In The Echoes

Of course, they owe their sound in turn to greats such as Underworld, Leftfield and even New Order in turn, but it’s difficult to deny that the Manchester duo took dance music from the confines of basement sessions and clubs to mainstream audiences everywhere. In fact, the group’s single ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ won a Grammy for ‘Best Instrumental Rock Track’ in 1997, ostensibly because there was no award for dance music at the time (the award for ‘Best Dance Recording’ was introduced the following year).
