Karl Hyde: Fresh off the Olympics, Underworld’s frontman stabs out solo

If nothing else, their iconic soundtrack for Trainspotting—and in Japan their sets at Fuji Rock and Rainbow 2000—assure Underworld a spot in music history.

I spoke with Hyde about his solo debut Edgeland ahead of next month’s SonarSound Tokyo.
