"Voodoo People" / "Out of Space" is the seventeenth single released by the British dance act The Prodigy on 3 October 2005, and was the only single released from their compilation album Their Law: The Singles 1990–2005. The single was released as a double A-side, and peaked at number twenty in the UK Singles Chart.[1]

Most releases featured two remixes, "Voodoo People" remixed by Pendulum and "Out of Space" remixed by Audio Bullys. Some versions also featured "Smack My Bitch Up" remixed by Sub Focus as a B-side, and other versions of the title tracks. Pendulum's remix of "Voodoo People" was accompanied by a music video, directed by Ron Scalpello.

Music video[edit]

A music video was produced for Pendulum's remix of "Voodoo People", directed by Ron Scalpello. It is based on a scene from the Spanish movie Intacto, a film themed around luck and games of chance. The video was filmed in Romford Market in London, England.

The video features several people racing blindfolded, with their hands bound. It could be compared to the video game Frogger, in which all participants must avoid the obstacles within a city. Though, since they could not see the obstacles, it was more of a 'last man standing' game. Several members of the band were spectators in the video, while the winner of the race was Sharky, a former member of The Prodigy who left shortly after the band formed.

Chart performance[edit]

"Voodoo People" / "Out of Space" entered the UK Singles Chart at number twenty, and the Irish Singles Chart at number 27 on 9 October 2005.[1] The song also peaked at number twenty in the Norwegian singles chart four weeks later on 6 November,[2] and reached the top 100 in the Swiss singles chart.
