Adham's Music of the Underground

Tunnel sounds: A-Z of the underground

Adham sends us this piece about the newly released 'track', A-Z of the underground. Listen to the track and look out for Adham at some of the 'station stops' along the 'way' in the music video.


All the Tube on one track for its 150th anniversary. Out now. at http://benphaze.bandcamp.com/track/a-z-of-the-underground

The iconic London Underground has been referenced countless times in popular culture. Musicians have had their takes on it, of course; Baker Street, Mornington Crescent and Warwick Avenue being some. However, there hasn't been a song to name every single station. Until now.

Ben Langham is a London Underground engineer by day and a station music master by night. Collecting recordings behind the scenes of the Tube - in the hidden tunnels, disused stations and forgotten passageways beneath London - he transforms them into songs for his Tunnel Sounds project. This unique concept has caught the attention of BBC Breakfast and CBS News.

2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the world's most famous urban rail network, and Ben felt this called for something very special. A-Z Of The Underground is a stunning one-off piece interchanging hip-hop and electronica featuring Kate Mullins (Puppini Sisters), Jaggi and AFS. Real sounds recorded on the Tube are edited and layered together with guitars, bass and punctual production based around the Central Line of rhythmic vocals acknowledging all 270 stations with lyrical flair.

Next time you take the Tube, listen to this audio tour of the system and you might end up with plenty of extra spring in your Stepney.
