Rick Smith and Karl Hyde's Underworld name is one of those UK heritage projects that's been more than influential in shaping the mood of the scene nowadays. Since the late 1980s these guys have done it all and seen it all, accompanied by the likes of Darren Emerson on the journeys, and even featured on film soundtracks such as Danny Boyle's Trainspotting. Second Toughest In The Infants is their 1996 album, and while we hadn't heard it in a while, we're pleased to hear that it has aged remarkably well. In fact, its magnificent blend of growling house beats and placid breakbeat is almost refreshing to the ears nowadays. The freedom with which these guys operated is a pleasure to immerse yourself in, and if you haven't heard this LP yet, do yourself a favour.
