credit: Rob Baker Ashton

“Border Country” is the second collaboration with friend of Underworld and DRIFT community member Ø [Phase]. It’s the final part of DRIFT Episode 4 and will be available on all DSPs July 4. Their upcoming album Drift Songs will be out October 25, 2019. It will be Underworld’s first album release since 2016’s Grammy nominated LP Barbara, Barbara we face a shining future.

Rick Smith said: “My relationship with Ashley a.k.a Ø [PHASE] began in Autumn 2017 when I first heard his Submerged Metropolitan release.. it’s not an exaggeration to say I immediately fell in love with his music. There was a sense of journey and mystery and magic to what I heard. Having worked with him for a little while we know he brings that same magic to the table every time, informed by his deep passion and understanding of the lineage of Techno and a thirst to learn and grow. A lovely talented man.”

Zomby: music review

Turn on. Tune in. drop out. That’s pretty much what I think of electronica. I can’t listen to it all the time. I could never dance to it all night. It’s good for exercising. It’s good for getting pumped up or for relaxing. It reminds me of college in the early 90s. So I get a flashback listening to the new release Nothing by Zomby [a heralded UK producer]. I don’t know techno music enough to distinguish anything by degrees. I could never differentiate Zomby from anything else. The first song on Zomby’s new EP “Labrynith” is very upbeat and makes you want to jump up and dance whereas “Sens” and “Skyhigh” relinquish you deep into blissful oblivion. Gentle pulsing and softer beats aurally soothe and extend that relaxation. I particularly appreciate the effervescent “Stargate5.”
