Like Yellow Magic Orchestra genespliced with Grooverider blasting out over a packed out Friday night dance floor at Fabric, Scribble is the thundering, boundarypummelling return to form from Underworld. A production and writing collaboration with drum and bass producer High Contrast, Scribble is the first new Underworld music since their critically acclaimed 2007 album Oblivion With Bells.
The track received its first airing before anywhere else in the world on Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 on Thursday 13th May 2010, where Lowe described it as the ‘Hottest record in the world!’. A radio edit was made available as a free download for one week only from the band’s website www.underworldlive.com immediately after Zane’s show, and simultaneously fans will be able to buy direct from the bands shop in high quality formats. The full version of Scribble will be released as a single on June 21st with, among other versions, a remix by Netsky (Hospital Records).
Karl Hyde and Rick Smith have been working together for three decades and recording as Underworld since the late ’80s. Scribble is the first track from the band’s as-yet-untitled sixth studio album which is due at the end of the summer. More information on the album and live dates soon.
