Global Underground recently announced details of its ‘TWENTY’ anniversary celebrating two decades of the independent dance music label. ‘TWENTY’ will see the release of a special 3 x CD album on 28 October (including a Super Deluxe Collector’s Edition featuring a 112 page hardback photography book of iconic Global Underground images captured by Dean Belcher); a photographic exhibition of Dean’s pictures at Edwin Jeans Exhibition Space in Brick Lane, London from 28 October - 10 November; the biggest Global Underground event ever at Amsterdam’s Q Factory on 20 October (during ADE) with James Lavelle, Darren Emerson, Eelke Kleijn, Habischman, and many more; followed by a party hosted by The Gallery at London’s Ministry of Sound on 28 October with very special guests to be announced.
Global Underground ‘TWENTY’ features 50 tracks including 15 album exclusives. It features classics, updated remixes and new productions from the likes of Moby, Sasha, Dixon, Dubfire, UNKLE, Booka Shade, Simian Mobile Disco, Gabriel Ananda and more, and also a bonus unmixed CD entitled ‘The Future’, featuring 10 exclusive tracks from possibly some of the world’s best new producers such as Denney, Dale Middleton and Just Her.
‘TWENTY’ will be available in two physical formats – Super Deluxe Collectors Edition with triple vinyl, triple CD and a 112 Page 12” Square ‘TWENTY’ hardback photography book all packaged in a hardback slipcase; the second being a Deluxe CD version with triple CDs plus a 24 Page ‘TWENTY’ Booklet. The album will also be available digitally.
Global Underground returned in 2015 under the ownership of its original founder, Andy Horsfield. Over the past 20 years the label has released albums from thirty DJs, visited 40 cities, and held thousands of parties with hundreds of thousands of clubbers. ‘TWENTY’ captures the musical and visual highlights of this ground-breaking era; the photography book itself has images chosen from an archive of over 100,000 pictures documenting youth culture around the globe from the ‘90s until the present day.
Global Underground’s artist label GUMUSIC also celebrates its 100th single release on 20 October with the re-release of a GU classic Roland Klinkenberg Feat DJ Remy ‘Mexico Can Wait’, with remixes from Gabriel Ananda, Matthew Jonson and more.
