Rewind back to Chicago circa 1984 and something quite incredible was happening, rhythms were being moulded on newly affordable drum machines such as the Roland 808 into 4-to-the-floor beat masterpieces and 'Underground dance music' was born. Fast forward 30 years and underground dance music lives on, be it in an ever evolving musical landscape full of every genre imaginable. Today, the popularity of underground House & Techno is ever increasing with festivals such as Coachella, Outlook, Hideout, Exit, Sonar, Awakenings, Eastern Electrics and Lost & Found becoming increasing popular amongst commercial audiences further blurring the lines between underground and mainstream. However this 'resurgence' of the underground is not a new concept, and much like the art of sampling and fashion; music genres cycle in waves of popularity, with people naturally wanting to be on the cutting edge of cool - and for this reason the underground will always remain. It's therefore time we paid tribute to the tracks making huge waves across the underground, and we bring you an exclusive upfront 2CD mix of this year's biggest weapons making waves in Ibiza and beyond, curated expertly by Ministry of Sound. Featuring brand new tracks from the likes of Denney, Dusky, Steve Lawler, Claude VonStroke, George Fitzgerald, Seth Troxler, Sasha, Shadow Child, Richie Hawtin alongside some names you might not have heard of before, this album definitely doesn't disappoint. Something is coming from the Underground….
