Out From Ibiza
15 years of Underworld, and their latest release proves they're still providing notable beats...

Underworld.  Photo by PerouUnderworld's first release in two years is a coming of age concept in the world of online music: in theThe Riverrun Project, the download-only Lovely Broken Thing is described as neither a single nor an album, but a mix of tracks interwoven to produce a stream of consciousness dance track.

With beats reminiscent of old school Atari music laced together with voices that seem made by a chrome-lined computer, Underworld's eclectic track will keep your head bobbing even after you forget you're listening.

Underworld are known for a kind psychadelia which spins and reverberates back into itself, and Lovely Broken Thing expounds upon their already well-known reputation, increasing its intensity and expanding the impact.

And for a fiver, it's definitely worth a good listen.
