Underworld
facts

 

Underworld are a Welsh electronic music group formed in 1980 in the Welsh capital, Cardiff, and the principal name of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith recording together. Prominent former members include Darren Emerson, from 1991-1999, and Darren Price, as part of the live band from 2005-2016.

Hyde and Smith began their musical partnership in Cardiff in 1979 with the Kraftwerk and reggae-inspired sounds of The Screen Gemz. They were joined by The Screen Gemz' bass player Alfie Thomas, drummer Bryn Burrows, and keyboardist John Warwicker in forming a proto-electroclash/new wave band whose name was a graphic squiggle, which was subsequently given the pronunciation Freur. The band signed to CBS Records, released 1983's Doot-Doot, and disbanded in 1986 after the followup Get Us out of Here was withheld.

After the release of fifth studio album Beaucoup Fish in 1999, Hyde declared in his interviews that he had sorted out earlier problems with alcoholism but all the members admitted that the sessions had been fraught with problems, with the individual members working in their own studios and only communicating via mixes of the raw material passed back and forth on DAT. After the release of the album a large number of mixes of the album tracks seemed to surface on singles, magazine promotional CDs and similar ephemeral formats perhaps indicating the number of revisions the tracks had gone through to get to the point where they were acceptable to all three. The album's name derives from a sample of a Cajun fisherman in Louisiana on the track "Jumbo".

 

Underworld embarked on a spirited and well-received tour in 1999, which resulted in a live CD and DVD drawn from several dates on the tour. Called Everything, Everything, the project captured the live Underworld experience very faithfully. A companion DVD was released separately soon after the album's release.

After the release and promotion of Everything, Everything, Emerson decided to leave Underworld to focus on his solo projects and record label. Hyde and Smith decided to continue as a duo. They recorded a new album, A Hundred Days Off, released to general approval. Despite its status as the band's first studio album since Emerson's departure, its general sound and feel was, perhaps surprisingly for many Underworld fans, not dissimilar to the previous albums on which Emerson had had input. In 2003, a 2-disc anthology entitled 1992-2002 was released. This was the first appearance on an album of previously unavailable single tracks and B-sides, such as "Bigmouth", "Spikee", "Dirty" and "8 Ball". While touring in the summer and autumn of 2005, the duo was joined on stage by Darren Price, a DJ and producer well known by the band who had remixed Underworld releases in the past.

Underworld's seventh studio album, Oblivion with Bells, was released in October 2007. The first single from the new album, "Crocodile", was released on September 5, 2007. U2's drummer Larry Mullen Jr helped out on the track "Boy, Boy, Boy". Underworld completed the soundtrack to the Danny Boyle film, Sunshine, in late 2006. Well over a year after the film's release, the official soundtrack was released on iTunes on November 25, 2008. The soundtrack is a collaboration with composer John Murphy.

Underworld announced a new album (their first studio album in six years) titled Barbara Barbara, We Face a Shining Future, released on March 18, 2016. The album earned a 2017 Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
