"Karl Hyde:
From Underworld, which is an English electronic music group. Best known as the vocalist for the electronic act. Londoner Karl Hyde was also in the pre-Underworld group Freur and maintains a solo career as well. The roots of Underworld go back to the dawn of the 1980s, when Hyde and musician Rick Smith formed a pop-reggae group the Screen Gemz and then the new wave band called Freur, who would release the minor hit ""Doot Doot"" in 1983. An early edition of Underworld was formed in 1987, but it would be 1991, when DJ Darren Emerson joined the group and Hyde’s lyric writing took on a more surreal, ""cut-up"" style, that the group found success. Underworld tracks like ""Born Slippy NUXX"" and ""Jumbo"" became hits, and eventually dance music classics, while the group withstood the 2002 departure of Emerson, releasing hit albums and successfully touring as a duo afterwards. In 2013, Hyde introduced his solo career with the album Edgeland, a more experimental effort than the usual Underworld release.
Edgeland:
Opener ’The Night Slips Us Smiling Underneath Its Dress’ sets the tone for Edgeland as a night bus soundtrack. Headphone music for the way home as you drift in and out of your surroundings and the serotonin ebbs from your body, awaiting the dawn. ’Shadow Boy’ is a strung-out, eight-and-a-half-minute mini-symphony that starts with such deceptive gentleness before building in waves and layers until it totally overwhelms.
There are tracks here that flit by without the melodic or rhythmic strength to properly engage - namely ’Shoulda Been A Painter’ and closer ’Sleepless’.
