It has been Underweorld biggest music production project to date with a new release each week over the past 52. Every Thursday a new chapter n their Drift series is written, which you can collect in a huge boxset featuring all the tracks in series 1…
On November 1st 2018 Underworld unleashed Another Silent Way, hailing the start of the DRIFT Series and accompanied by a somewhat rash promise (to you the listener, to themselves the band): Series 1 was to see Rick and Karl release music every Thursday for a year, most of it new, recorded and mixed in the days following the previous release. With no map and no fixed destination, DRIFT would go on to be a wildly ambitious, wilfully experimental, occasionally maddening, never less than intriguing ride
52 weeks later, DRIFT Series 1 collects together Underworld’s inspired, visionary work from the last year. Music and film that spans genres and continents, created in hotel rooms, kitchens, tour buses, cars and studios. Along the way, they invited techno producers, economics writers, Japanese noise musicians and Australian improv trance acts in to add their unique perspectives to DRIFT. The result is a collection of some of the best music of their careers.
DRIFT Series 1 is released everywhere this Friday, as a 7 CD box set that includes a Blu-ray of all the films and an 80 page book that documents the year’s work. Also available is a single CD or 2 x LP ‘Sampler Edition’, each version inviting you spend one year in DRIFT - it’s up to you how deep you want to dive.

NEW RELEASE - S T A R (REBEL TECH)
Today’s release is the 52nd in a series of 52 - S T A R (Rebel Tech) frames the song’s familiar list against a shuddering shockwave of a rhythm track, a shout out to the great and the good from a different dancefloor
