Default Dirty Radio playing an Underworld live set right now - what is it?

On the off-chance anyone sees this in the next few mins...

Dirty Radio is playing out an amazing live Underworld set right now.

(11:30am 19/6/18)

It's probably the most creative of any performance of theirs I have heard. Sounds like loads of jamming with vocoder & guitar & a flow of experimentation that I am missing in their SSL set-up.

It sounds like it might be Japan, but not sure when/where and would love to know if this recording is available somewhere.

The mash-ups of tracks & vamping just sound like the band at their most free & I'd love to know more about the set up at this time.

Cheers!

It is either from a compilation of shows from the OWB tour (2007/2008), or Alexandra Palace (1999) - both of which were played out today

Thank you kindly! I think it's the former (run-time of 2:45:00ish)

The Now Playing hasn't been working today.. nothing coming through on the SHOUTcast Stream History, incidentally.

The Ally Pally one is great too, but I think this 2007/8 sound is just about the pinnacle in terms of putting a new spin on tracks and seemingly jamming in a way they don't do now.

I may be alone in this, but it feels like the SSL-based setup now means we pretty much know where everything is going to be and it's really just about mutes & limited level control rather than all the playful vibes of this live recording. It actually feels like Rick had more control.

Any info on what gear they used to achieve that would be very welcome.

Thanks for the info - and for playing it!

You mean the NYE 1998 Ally Pally show? If so what tracks were played from that show?

The heart of the OG setup was a pair of Midas mixing consoles, a 48 channel and a 36 channel.


I would be VERY VERY surprised if the SSL was incapable of doing the same things and much more than the old Midas consoles. Its more likely that the current style is a choice rather than a gear restriction.


For that matter the old style was also just mutes and defeats, but just executed in a more loose style. It's also my understanding that rick used to keep a lot more pieces available to himself on stage than he does now, allowing more variety between shows, but I'm sure requiring more homework and prep to make sure the pieces fit.
