MOST INFLUENTIAL DANCE ARTISTS #7: UNDERWORLD

If you have been coming to Golden Bloggen for a while, you know how much I love my countdowns. This week we will be counting down the Most Influential Dance Acts. You can’t deny the impact dance music has had on pop music in the U.S. over the past couple of years with dance artists like Crookers, David Guetta, and Benny Benassi crossing over to the mainstream. So I will be acknowledging the Top 7 acts who were instrumental in being the dance sound to the masses in the states.

I’m starting off the countdown with Underworld. These guys have been around since the late 80’s but their track “Born Slippy” from the Trainspotting soundtrack really put them on the map in 1996. Electronic music was not getting a lot of spin on U.S. mainstream radio in the mid-90’s, so when “Born Slippy” broke thru it had a lot of people wondering “what the hell is this sound?” They haven’t really gained the success in the U.S. as most of the other bands on this list but these guys are still rocking to this day and are a very in-demand live act.

Underworld – Born Slippy
