Los Angeles, CA (Top40 Charts/ UMe) In January '94, Rick Smith, Darren Emerson & Karl Hyde released their debut album - Dubnobasswithmyheadman - on UK independent label Junior Boy's Own. Up to that point, the three-piece were seen as something of a square peg. They crafted songs from transcendent dance music. They were clearly a band - complete with frontman/guitarist - yet they made records where the constituent parts and players were often indefinable. Musically, they took elements from the European techno underground & Balearic clubs and fused them with spliced up beat poetry and strung out ambient sounds. Really, they just weren't like anyone else.

Underworld's debut arrived as a fully formed statement of intent. Its' nine tracks showcased the limitless possibilities of electronic music. Although born out of club culture, Dubnobass… defied the accepted genres of the time - equally suited to the dancefloor and the after party, it was as immersive an experience quaking through bassbins or headphones. Two decades on from its original release, it's unarguable that Dubnobasswithmyheadman is one of the most influential British electronic records of all time; a signpost for everything from dance music's easy relationship with main stages at festivals to the radio/globe-conquering EDM phenomenon.

To celebrate Dubnobasswithmyheadman's twentieth anniversary, the record has been meticulously remastered at Abbey Road for a deluxe reissue by the band's Rick Smith. Revisiting the original MIDI files, Rick uncovered a wealth of previously unreleased material and rare alternate mixes that sit alongside the record's original companion singles and remixes and offer a fascinating insight into the creation of the record. The resultant release is the definitive version of one of those rare records that truly deserves to be described as a classic.

To coincide with the re-release of Dubnobasswithmyheadman, Underworld will play the album in full at a one-off show at London's Royal Festival Hall on October 11, 2014. This show will offer fans a unique chance to see Underworld in one of the capital's most iconic venues playing this classic album in its entirety for the first time.

Dubnobasswithmyheadman is the first release through Universal Music's exclusive worldwide deal for the band's iconic collected works. Work is under way on plans for forthcoming future deluxe, remastered editions of each of the band's classic albums.
