Mark Knight & D.Ramirez V Underworld - Downpipe is a massively infectious groove that’s gonna make you shake – “it’s gonna make your hands shake” and builds excitement from start to end as the collaborative talents involved create an all-consuming journey for this, the first ever collaboration in the history of Underworld, already crowned ‘Essential New Tune’ on Radio1 by Pete Tong.
An insanely infectious piece of music that has feeling and passion rushing through its veins, the combination of tech grooves and intense progressive-build nods heavily to the tight production skills of Mark Knight and D.Ramirez and sees a stunning return to international dance floors for one of electronic music's most iconic voices – Karl Hyde, for this, the much anticipated and long overdue follow up to the 2007 anthem ‘Columbian Soul’.
Having created a defining soundtrack to a chemical generation with the almighty ‘Born Slippy’ and countless club crossover hits including the likes of ‘Rez’ and ‘Cowgirl’, Underworld are highly regarded as one of the best in the business.
Take this heritage and legacy and combine it with one of the most prolific DJ production partnerships in the world right now and you have something very special indeed.
It’s a floor-exploding, pulsating monster with Knight, Ramirez and Smith working the tribal callings of Karl Hyde to full on effect. His hypnotic vocal gets deep under your skin and firmly locked in your brain.
The combination of Underworld's unmistakable talent for drawing on primal energies and Mark Knight and D.Ramirez's unquestionable production skills and knowledge of the Dance Floor tells a powerful story that is ahead of the curve and pays off with a monster riff in the drop.
‘Downpipe’ is above all, a sure fire winner that will drive the main room of any big club or festival, clever enough to seduce the underground.
Mark Knight and D Ramirez - “We’ve been planning the follow up to Columbian Soul for some time and wanted to do something next level; instantly Underworld came to mind. Downpipe is a track with new spirit and plenty of reason to dance. It's been a real honour to team up with the biggest act in dance and a major coup for Toolroom Records to have secured the release”
Underworld - "working with Mark, Dean and Toolroom has been a pleasure. When we heard the guys ideas for the track we just had to get involved. Downpipe sounds enormous, we can't wait to hear it out on the dancefloor.
