Most people don't know this band. Underworld, from Britain, has been around for a long time, I believe they started sometime in the 80's but it wasn't until the movie Trainspotting came out that they found a little fame. I never really picked up on them until one of my favorite design company's, Tomato, picked them up as a client.

It has taken me a long time to get into electronica music and I contribute this band to helping me find the love. Their fourth album, "Second toughest in the infants" released in early 1996 (yes this is old) has everything you need for training. Heavy repetition, with slight change ups to peak your interest, multiple beats to follow your pedal stroke with, and most of all, for me at least, a sound that mesmerizes me. I fall into a trance almost everytime I listen to this album. Check them out.
