One thing I love about the Chemical Brothers is that their music is essentially timeless. While electronic genres these days get old almost immediately as most producers are constrained to write completely identical and generic tunes, Chemical's classic Hey Boy Hey Girl still gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. Their work is simply beyond genres, and that's why they stand the test of time.
Another thing I love about them is the awesome visuals on their music videos and live performances. I have been lucky enough to see them a few times at different summer festivals and their shows always blew me away. On stage they are just two guys behind racks of instruments - you can barely see them - but behind them there's an enormous digital screen showing extemely well designed, minimalistic and hypnotic animations completely synchronized to the music. These animations rhyme well with their musical style which also tends to be very crisp and clean, with just a couple of layers of sounds and no unnecessary effects.
If you are a Chemical Brothers fan yourself - but even if you have no idea what I'm talking about - make sure you check out Don't Think, a brand new concert video of their performace at last year's Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. It's full of great music and visuals and it's most likely the next best thing to seeing them live. It's available on Blu-ray, DVD and as far I know you can even catch it in selected cinemas.
