Underworld: _beta 16.11.2018


the opposite of ‘normal’ or ‘usual practice’ (Karl Hyde)

Drift is an ongoing experiment that will regularly publish new Underworld material – music, film, stories, etc – right here on underworldlive.com. The Drift series is an epic year-long road trip by the band in collaboration with Tomato and friends old and new from playwrights to DJs in jazz and techno to painters and poets.

Further elements of Drift will be released weekly every Thursday. Sign up below to be the first to get them directly to your inbox

Drift, Ep 1, Pt. 3 Low Between Zebras

Low Between Zebras (featuring the voice of Matthew Trevannion), is Episode 1 Part 3 of Underworld’s DRIFT Series. The film, by Underworld and Mollie Gallagher, draws inspiration from stories gathered through the Manchester Street Poem project in 2017 and its release coincides with Rick & Karl’s participation in a new MSP installation at the International Arts & Homelessness Festival taking place in Manchester this week.

“The original brief for the film was inspired by a story I heard from a lady who had begged on the street and how she had watched the world every day from low down to the ground. How legs & feet moving around & past her, always ‘going somewhere’, reinforced her own feelings of going nowhere.” Karl Hyde

Low Between Zebras is Underworld for the other small hours – for those quiet times when the dawn breaks and the road seems endlessly inviting.

Drift, Ep 1, Pt. 2 Dexters Chalk

A collaboration with producer and DJ Ashley Burchett a.k.a. Ø [Phase], Dexters Chalk soundtracks a new film by tomato’s Simon Taylor. Watch it below…

Drift, Ep 1, Pt. 1: Another Silent Way

Kicking-off with their feet firmly in their world of live dance music, Another Silent Way is uniquely and unmistakably Underworld, all thunderous drums, relentless acid lines and cyclone vocals, soundtracking a film made in collaboration with the UK drift racing community and Tomato and shot entirely at the Rockingham Speedway in Corby in summer 2018.
