Re: Karl Hyde: cut clouds
I love all this kind of stuff the guys do on the side. On balance I'd say about half of Underworld's output is what for argument's sake I'll call "dance" and the other half is "chill," and I can't think of many electronic acts who operate that way. And I confess that as I get older and find myself sitting behind a desk more often than not, I really appreciate having this kind of music to keep me company.

Re: Karl Hyde: cut clouds
The more I think about it, the less I feel they would split up now. I had a gut fear of it when first presented as a possibility (especially after how quiet it's been). I don't think they'll be doing much more rave style stuff as rave has been dead for years and years and we're left with hardcore and what not there. *shiver* I definitely think they will keep up with dance music though. They love it to much, they love the stage to much to give it up. As for what shape and style that will take? We'll see in mexico in a few months. I think it might be a healthy thing for them to take creative leave of each other for a short time (only been 20+ years straight, and 30+ overall) and bring their separate creative findings and musings back together. Worked out well for orbital, though not all the parallels hold up there.

I like this track, I've listened to the river run quite a bit and this feels like a harkening towards that again. More layering of karl's vocals? I love it when I feel that there's a choir of him in my headphones

Also today's diary is a tease... Sure you can tell us karl, but you don't!

Re: Karl Hyde: cut clouds
I love their dance tracks and all that good energy on concerts that comes with it,
the Radio 1 recording from Ibiza is still my favourite, but I have nothing against hearing his smooth voice alternated with Ricks ambient tracks for a while

btw...Efterklang is coming to my town so Im going to see them on Friday. I have been thinking many times that Karls voice would fit that band so well. A future collaboration would make me happy, similar to that he made with Eno.

Great track! What's next? For Rick and for Karl and Underworld? It's time for another shake and change!

Re: Karl Hyde: cut clouds
Wow, I'm really loving that sound. I'm a sucker for those dream-like pad sounds. It reminds me of the track 'Pain' on the Max Payne 3 soundtrack (minus the vocals):

I hope we get more info soon about the solo album.

This kind of reminds me a little of Louisiana blended in with Sigur Ros singing in English. Not a bad combination. I'm definitely excited about this!

Re: Karl Hyde: cut clouds
Karl Hyde to perform solo at SonarSound. Discuss.

(Thanks to our friends at for pointing this out and translating.)

Karl Hyde (with Underworld DJ Darren Price) flew in at very short notice, performing as the Underworld DJs for Sonar Sound Tokyo 2011, in support of the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake. 2013 sees Karl Hyde, together with a group of hand picked musicians, embark on a series of solo shows to perform some of his new songs as well as rediscovered and reworked gems from the Underworld vaults. For a brief taste of what to expect.

Very interested to see who is playing in support. Brian Eno? Jon Hopkins? folks from Freur or UW mk i?

Also, those rediscovered overlooked UW gems... would love to hear some truly rare tracks or wild remixes, not so much a blues version of "Born Slippy", but i suspect we'll get the latter.
