Last Friday, we here at the Blue Blood office got a visit from our new friends The Prodigy. For the very few of you who do not know who they are, let me tell you. The Prodigy is an awesome English electronic music band. Their music style can be described as a mixture of rave, break beat, electronic and industrial. With this they have sold millions and millions of albums worldwide, since they emerged on the scene in the early nineties.
How come they came to visit us in Amsterdam? This all happened by coincidence. Our creative director Steve te Pas and our sales director Alex Jaspers met The Prodigy last month at Venice airport. Steve and Alex coming from a wash factory and The Prodigy from a gig they just had in Naples. Steve and Alex, like always, dressed in Blue Blood clothes strolling around the airport got stopped by members of The Prodigy. They loved their style, their clothes, just their whole look and they were dying to know which brand they were wearing. Alex, whom was a little bit unsure whether or not it was the Prodigy he was talking to, started to explain with great enthusiasm and passion about our brand Blue Blood and informed them that he was also in charge for the sales of it. The Prodigy soon then introduced themselves and started to talk about their passion, music. And so they hid it of from there. Steve and Alex invited them to come by the BB office and show room whenever they were scheduled to perform in The Netherlands.
And so it came to The Prodigy visiting us last Friday. From the second they walked in, it was as if Blue Blood and The Prodigy have always been friends. They expected a tiny jeans room, so when they walked in they could not stop saying how cool they thought everything was. The fascinating thing was that everybody at Blue Blood felt an instant click with the boys. When two parties both are incredibly passionate about a certain thing in life, conversation with one another will always be intense and interesting. Blue Blood fascinated by jeans and The Prodigy obsessed by playing guitar and all different styles of music, could not decide what was cooler. The prodigy thought Blue Blood was cooler, we thought they were cooler – it didn’t stop.
When they left us, they invited us all to come see them perform at Lowlands last weekend, and it was amazing! On stage they look rough, wild and extrovert but of stage they are such cool and laid back guys. We love our new friends and all that they are into and we look forward to seeing them again in London in October.
aaaahhhh the BB boys and The prodigy lads have found each other!
Little Dean Moses desperately want to wear Blue Blood too, just like his daddy, Alex.
