Prodigy Present: The Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One is a 1999 solo mix album by Liam Howlett of The Prodigy (the latter was used as a moniker in this case), and it was initially produced for BBC Radio 1's mix show The Breezeblock.
There are more than 48 tunes from many artists mixed, scratched and cut. The album came about as a result of a 1998 guest DJ appearance by Howlett on Mary Anne Hobbs's Breezeblock show on the UK radio station Radio 1, producing a similar set.
In a bid to stop popular bootleg copies of the show, an official album, essentially an extended version of the Breezeblock mix, was released. The two mixes are not quite the same as permission to use certain tunes was not forthcoming for all samples. Most notable is the removal of The Beatles' "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" which was also left off The Chemical Brothers' Brothers Gonna Work It Out DJ Mix but was left on the earlier promo release Radio 1 Anti-Nazi Mix.
