REZ | SINGLE |1993

One of their very first underground club anthems and a crowd-winning track in their live shows.


COWGIRL | Dubnobasswithmyheadman |1994

Usually mixed after Rez in live performances, Cowgirl is a classic example of Underworld's thundering electronica style.


Dark & Long | dubnobasswithmyheadman |1994

This rolling trance like anthem (The Dark Train mix) was made famous by 1996 Film Trainspotting.


Born Slippy | SINGLE |1995

Underworld's undisputed magnum opus and biggest hit to date. Again like Dark & Long made famous by Trainspotting in the final scene. Choose Life.


King of Snake | Beaucoup Fish | 1999

Another big club winner at the end of the 20th century. This track also popped up in 2000 film Kevin and Perry Go Large.


Two Months Off | A Hundred Days Off | 2002

The first single that Karl Hyde and Rick Smith released together as duo, this track saw Underworld explore an ambient and experimental music style on this album.


Sola Sistim | A Hundred Days Off | 2002

Another perfect example of ambient experimentation on A Hundred Days Off, this downbeat song brought together Underworld's comeback album.


Peach Tree | SINGLE | 2007

A B-side on the Crocodile release, we picked this tune out as it really encompasses Underworlds style around this period. High-octane breakbeat also sounds great in headphones too.


BIRD 1 | Barking | 2010

Forever chopping and changing style between albums, Barking saw them experiment once again with more electro sounding synths.


SCRIBBLE | Barking | 2010

Underworld makes an uplifting liquid drum and bass track with High Contrast and the result is truly beautiful.


On Wednesday 23 May you can see Underworld perform LIVE right here in Ibiza in what will be an immense live show.

This event is likely to sell out, so think ahead if you want to to experience the unique and immersive style of Underworld.
