If you like Underworld & Iggy Pop, you may also like: FRKWYS Vol. 13: Sunergy by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani. supported by 4 fans who also own Teatime Dub Encounters. Always a pleasure to get lost in her synths. This colab is a success. Portrait With Firewood by Djrum. How blessed I feel to have practically stumbled upon this album by accident. I was drawn to the unabashedly painterly artwork, assuming this would be a more "interesting" than memorable experimental.
While Iggy’s latest effort, ‘Post Pop Depression‘ with Josh Homme and c. marked a late career highlight and Underworld’s ‘Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future‘ also scored highly across the board, ‘Teatime Dub Encounters’ doesn’t pale in their shadow or smack of a vanity or side project. This is a whole new monster born of the friction from a restless need to create, the pure abandon to do whatever the fuck feels good, and the batshit brilliance from three mad scientists with so much still to prove.
Teatime Dub Encounters EP. Caroline International. The pairing itself is a canny one. Iggy’s always had a pop edge that balanced out his feral persona, and Underworld frequently added doses of weirdness to their crossover electronica. In the Venn diagram of the two groups, there’s an overlap that’s worth exploring and might even bear fruit. So it’s unfortunate that Iggy, now 71, is in such a half-baked and aggravating form. His voice has the leathery gravitas to pull off more reflective moods while still being elastic enough to go for a full frontal attack. But he needs better lyrics than these.
Another excellent underworld release, well mastered and some awesome tunes from an unexpected collabaration just a shame there are only 4 tracks. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful.
Teatime Dub Encounters. Teatime Dub Encounters. Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Underworld and Iggy Pop announce Teatime Dub Encounters due for release on July 27th via Caroline. The 4 track EP is the result of a few clandestine hotel room recording sessions that began a few weeks after Underworld and Iggy Pop each released their last albums on the same day (3/18/16). It is neither historical nor a tribute to past work; it is the work of artists in motion, engaged in a process that they both bring to all of their work – one that uses spontaneity as a spur for creativity.
Iggy's Post Pop Depression and Underworld's Barbara Barbara were coincidentally released the same day, and shortly thereafter, the artists met to work on music for T2 Trainspotting. Remixes of "Lust for Life" and "Born Slippy" ultimately appeared on the sequel's soundtrack instead of new material, but the Iggy and Underworld sessions led to this, a diverting if inconsequential EP filled with a lot of flippant humor and a little serious reflection.

How could Iggy say no? Iggy and Underworld first moved in the same circles on the seminal ‘Trainspotting’ soundtrack (‘Lust for Life’ and ‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)’). This opportunistic EP was partly recorded at the Savoy Hotel at a meeting between Underworld and Iggy to discuss music for ‘T2 Trainspotting’ – film producer Danny Boyle was present via Skype. The first fruits were presented back in May and the EP was announced shortly afterwards
