Underground all over the world


HIPSTERS, flipsters, and fingerpopping daddies, we give you the international transglobal conglomerate of music.
Run Devils And Demons is the two-CD best of Transglobal Underground, a London-based world fusion collective that's had at least 15 members throughout a 19-year career.
Over nearly two decades the group has mixed world influences from Indian sitars to Delta blues guitars and everything in between, in every direction, with dance music ranging from house to drum and bass.
The results have been eclectic, but everything is tied together by the infectious energy of its execution.
A band which broke new ground and paved the way for acclaimed acts such as Afro-Celt Soundsystem, Talvin Singh, One Giant Leap and Banco De Gaia, Run Devils And Demons is an excellent retrospective on a group which has pushed musical boundaries the world over.
