The soundtrack to the 1999 movie The Matrix included big beat songs and the soundtrack was certified platinum by the RIAA on August 25, 1999. and went to number 1 in many other countries around the world, especially in Europe and Australasia. The Prodigy's album The Fat of the Land went to number 1 on the Billboard 200 in the USA in July 1997.The track does what it says on the tin, the thumping pacemaker of a techno beat combined with airy percussion of 'Hands Off My Beat' and its tribal house borrowings. Unlike the 1990s genre, it did not cover electronic music; rather, it was used to cover rock and roll and its related genres as the terms were not approved by the authorities in the Eastern Bloc countries (the USSR and its satellite states in the Warsaw Pact).

However, big beat had left an indelible mark on popular music as an indigenous progression from rave music, bridging a divide between clubbers and indie rock fans. By the 1980s, rock and roll and related terms were already accepted by the authorities, [3] so the term fell into obscurity until its 1990s name revival.The Big Beat Manifesto takes influence from many spheres of electronic music and brings them together under a single banner.

People like the Prodigy and the Chemical Brothers – we saw it as very similar to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, who grew up listening to soul records and blues records and then sold an English version of it back to America. Norman Cook and Damian Harris first became associated with the term "big beat" through Harris's label Skint Records and club night the Big Beat Boutique, [14] held on Friday nights at Brighton's Concorde club between 1995 and 2001. Big beat is an electronic music genre that usually uses heavy breakbeats and synthesizer-generated loops and patterns – common to acid house/ techno. Side A features 'Hands Off My Beat', a joyous piece of tribal house that is sure to be a people pleaser, and 'Beat The Chart' which heel turns into a chiptune techno workout anthem - not the most severe genre 180 that Burns has ever done. Hands On The Chart(Pad version)' is the masterclass in genre-fusion that keeps us coming back time after time to Burns.They are often punctuated with punk-style vocals or rappers and driven by intense, distorted synthesizer basslines with conventional pop, house and techno song structures. The big beat scene had started to gradually decline in popularity by 2001, due to the novelty of the genre's formula fading. In 1989, Iain Williams from the English electronic duo Big Bang coined the musical term "big beat" to describe the band's musical style. The term caught on, and was subsequently applied to a wide variety of acts, including Bentley Rhythm Ace, Lionrock, the Crystal Method, Lunatic Calm, the Lo Fidelity Allstars, Death in Vegas, and the Propellerheads among others. The Prodigy's song " Firestarter" went to number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a number 1 hit in many other countries, including the Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary and Norway.

Big beat tracks have a sound that includes crescendos, builds, drops, extended drum rolls, and sounds such as spoken word samples, dialogues from film and TV, additional instruments such as Middle Eastern strings or sitars, explosions, air horns, sirens (usually police sirens) and gunshots. Celebrated pioneers of the genre such as Fatboy Slim tend to feature heavily compressed loud breakbeats in their songs, which are used to define the music as much as any melodic hooks and sampled sounds.The concept of the big beat sound was later picked up on and adapted by many club DJs and went on to become widely used by many successful musicians throughout the 1990s. House Non Stop' picks up with some prickly acid squelch and bouncing house drums while 'Multitool' closes out with a flailing percussive workout and tribal energy. The band's sound consisted of various experimental musical elements, including heavy drum beats and synthesizer-generated loops as well as an added suggestion of European influences that at times had a trance-like quality. Public Posession's Big Beat Manifesto hits a seventh volume here with the prophet Eden Burns bringing more of those direct-to-dancefloor sounds that he is so well known for.
