The pioneering duo of Rick Smith and Karl Hyde return after 3 years with a freshly released 6th studio LP. On Barking their effortlessly perfect balance of melody and rhythm gets worked-over by some of the biggest names in dance; Paul Van Dyk, Dubfire, Mark Knight, High Contrast and D. Ramirez, for a completely pimped-out Underworld make-over. ”Scribble” co-produced by High Contrast, was the critically acclaimed, groovy drum & bass intro to the new set and now “Bird 1″ with production interjection by Dubfire is poised to top that up. Along with Dubfire’s influence, the slew of remixes by longtime innovators, Dirty Vegas, Mark Broom, Clouds, Lone, sbtrkt, and Pete Tong & Paul Rogers make this essential caning.
