Global Underground Announces Details of its ‘TWENTY’ Anniversary
Global Underground has announced details of its ‘TWENTY’ anniversary celebrating two decades of the pioneering independent dance music label. It returned in 2015 under the ownership of its original founder, Andy Horsfield. Over the past twenty years the label has released albums from thirty DJs, visited forty 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 Nineties until the present day.
‘TWENTY’ will see the release of a special 3 x CD album on 28th 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 28th October – 10th November; the biggest Global Underground event ever at Amsterdam’s Q Factory on 20th October (during ADE) with Darren Emerson, Eelke Kleijn, Habischman, and many more; followed by a party hosted by The Gallery at London’s Ministry of Sound on 28th October with very special guests James Lavelle and Dave Seaman.
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 some of 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.
