The British electronic and techno group, Underworld, is made up of the dynamic duo of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith. These two progressive dance music greats began recording together in 1980. Their work has included collaborative efforts with several bands and individual musicians. They have woven a number of different genres into their dance, trance and house music, such as electropop, reggae and rock fusion. Their most mainstream hits are "Dark and Long (Dark Train)," which was included in the film Trainspotting, and "Born Slippy NUXX." Other albums they have released include Second Toughest in the Infants and Barking.
Whether they are mixing it up live or collaborating with other groups such as the Royal National Theatre for their production of Frankenstein, Underworld demonstrates the diverse nature of electronic music in all that they do.
