The Prisoners of Technology are TMS1,
DJ Magic and K Dub. Back in the hardcore days, TMS1 and
K Dub worked together in the same studio. They worked as
a duo until 1994, when they decided they needed someone
who could help play and promote their music. In late 1994,
TMS1 linked with Magic, who had been MCing and then DJing
on pirates like Force, Pressure and Syndicate, and introduced
him to K Dub. From there, the three decided to work together
on tunes - forming The Prisoners Of Technology and Fresh
Kutt Records (sourced from Knowledge Magazine).
Now why should you, a Beastie Boys
fan, need to know who TMS1, DJ Magic, and K-Dub are? Because
the Prisoners of Technology remixed "Intergalactic"
in 1998 and made Drum and Bass listeners reconsider the
track as being a huge crossover club favorite. Usually mainstream
artists like the Beastie Boys are ignored by indie purists
in the Euro DJ scene - that was not the case this time.
age feel really lends itself to the effects added by TMS1.When
asked "What are the most important elements in a P.O.T.
track?" The response was, "there's got to be meaning
behind the tune, the sound has got to be as fat as it can
be and it must have the ability to rock the dancefloor."
We all know that "Intergalactic" met those prerequisites.
