Default Apple + Underworld (iDrum Underworld Edition)

from the press release:

To celebrate the release of the full underworld back catalogue for the first time on iTunes, Underworld, in partnership with cutting edge developer iZotope, bring you an amazing iPhone iDrum application containing some of the most famous tunes from Underworld's juke box of techno classics.

Featuring tracks from all Underworld's albums and including "Born Slippy", "Two Months Off" and "Cowgirl" the application allows the user to remix, re-sequence and reconstruct 12 Underworld tunes and also features a piece created by the band themselves exclusively for the application.

With specially commissioned artwork from Tomato's John Warwicker the application is the closest you'll get to dropping the kick drum on "Born Slippy" without getting on stage with the guys yourself. In celebration, Underworld are giving away a special live version of "Born Slippy" recorded at Brixton Academy and have announced North American dates this August, including (technology permitting!) the worlds first FREE live audio-visual broadcast to the iPhone on Friday August 7th 2009 as Underworld continue their series of incredible live broadcasts at The Fox Oakland Theater.

Direct from the Fox Theatre in Oakland and accessible through Underworldlive.com check out the bands legendary show featuring some of the biggest dance hits of the last 15 years and maybe some future hits for 2010.

This is completely free and all you need is a computer with Quick Time installed on a broadband connection or an iPhone on a wi-fi connection running iPhone 3.0 or higher.

Thank you!

I may have to stay up late then, glad there doing it on a PC to:

Edit:

When UW did the Roundhouse gigs, did any video rips of the gigs appear after Apple covered them? I was at Roundhouse 1 and would love to see it back.

Released rips? No. Saved and need to be processed? Um, yes.

As there are two great, separate pieces of news here, I'll respond to them separately:

1. A new Underworld app? And a new Underworld song?
Though it may not be on the new album, this is great news. Since it's being written for a drum-synthesizing app, I'd assume it's a pretty high-energy song, which is also great. A lot of their newer songs are very moody and it's been a while since they've made a really good, pounding club track. I wonder if it'll be another Loads of Birds (in treatment, not style) and get released as a bonus track on UW6?

2. 0_0...
W-o-w.
I have never been so happy that California time is 3 hours earlier than EST. I'll be returning from a camping trip on the 7th and it's a 13-hour car ride home, so it'd be hard to view it any time sooner that 11 P.M. Plus, it'll be like a late movie night for all the East Coast fans. I promise that, if the circumstances work out, I'll be recording the audio for the concert, so if they drop any mind-blowing new stuff and decide we can't download it for ourselves then at least we'll have audio (I'm not promising, however, that it won't be without skips. Wiretap is a sometimes unnervingly accurate recorder, and any delays in receiving the broadcast will be accounted for on the recording).
If any of you west-coast Dirts are lucky enough to be near the cameras, give the rest of us a shout-out. We'll be listening.

If it's a drum based song that's coming out via this app, I'll be the first person to guess that it's going to be "You Do Scribble."

If they ever got processed, I'll happily send money over for a copy!

"release of the full underworld back catalogue for the first time on iTunes"

Really hoping the FULL part of that quote is accurate.

Yeah, i'm guessing the "Stand Up!" single isn't included. Would be nice if some rarer singles/EPs made it to iTunes. "Dogman Go Woof" and "The Hump" would be spiffy to have in a decent form...
