Their latest track S T A R, is a hypnotic vocal rhyme the progresses through various celebrity stars and as Underworld describe it, it is “…a celebration of life, and of lives, and of the good and the truly great .” Alongside the rhyme is a break-beat styled rhythm, which is then joined by a rain like pattern sitting high on top. Samba like drums come from nowhere and leave just as quick, making you want more while further on the track breaks down into a pad driven break point where slowly all the single elements that featured throughout come together for the first time creating the perfect end to the track.
