The Prodigy is a British electronic group founded in 1990. They made their debut with the release of "What Evil Lurks" EP in 1991. Initially known for their rave/breakbeat sound, they later incorporated rock guitars into their music, resulting in a more mainstream sound with the album "The Fat Of The Land" (1997).
The band is led by Liam Howlett, who handles keyboards, synthesizers, programming, and various other instruments since its inception. Maxim joined as an MC and vocalist shortly after their formation in 1991.
Former members include Keith Flint, who was both a dancer and lead vocalist from 1995 until his tragic death by suicide in 2019. Leeroy Thornhill contributed as a dancer and occasionally played live keyboards from 1990 to 2000. Sharky was one of the original dancers but left before the band signed their record deal.
