Winners of the ‘Club Global’ category in the BBC Awards for World Music 2008
Fusing Jamaican dancehall, Asian flavours, gypsy rhythms and global samples with acid house, break-beats, drum ‘n’ bass and a punk attitude, Transglobal Underground are the quintessential world music band. Taking influence from the four corners of the globe these cultural magpies have created a heady global melting-pot of tribal house-world fusion-ambient dub which has won over both open-minded ravers and the world music cognoscenti alike.
From setting the early 90s dance scene alight with their savvy mix of electronic beats, ethnic breaks and global samples, Transglobal went on to release a stream of pioneering albums that pushed the boundaries of world music whilst their incendiary live performances established them as a favourite at music festivals and raves across the world.
Run Devils and Demons is the first compilation to pull together all their greatest hits, club smashes and live favourites from the last 18 years onto one album. They will be touring this album across Europe throughout spring/summer 2009.
