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.
