Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 6 - Border Country
Of the 3 Phase tracks, I put Give Me the Room tops, but I would guess that Border Country has the most mainstream appeal.


The Phase songs are really interesting collaborations...I feel like it gives the Underworld sound an element of "danger"--maybe dare I say "emerson"-ish sounds.


Not that these are my favorite Drift songs, because they aren't, I just find them to be an interesting experiment.

shhh, you'll jinx it.

Give Me The Room really soured on me over time. i think it's one of the weakest karl selections of the bunch. "Sanctify" is... not an interesting thing to navel-gaze 50x over about.

Although I really like DC.... it has both the best and worst of the lyrics! making "a ring, a pinky... if you break the bargain then you go to hell" sound all intense and dark like that, it's nonsense

BC is absolutely my favorite. These collabs with Ashley definitely give UW that dark driving clubby edge that has been missing since Emerson left. Though, I also feel like that sound kinda fell out of favor for a while, until the likes of Gesaffelstein and Daniel Avery brought it back in the middle of the decade.
