Global Underground is a music label founded in 1996 by Andy Horsfield and James Todd. The label symbolizes the international explosion of dance music during the 1990s and first manifesto for high-end DJs such as Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, John Digweed, Danny Tenaglia, Nick Warren, Dave Seaman, Darren Emerson, and James Lavelle.
Global Underground refers to a series of electronic music compilation albums which reflect the performances of high profile DJs in venues from around the world. The Global Underground series was released by a record label formerly known as Boxed which featured several sister series such as Nubreed and Electric Calm. Boxed closed in 2001 and was superseded by Global Underground Ltd. Since its first release in 1996, the series gained huge success and became a hallmark in the progressive house world. The music featured is mostly progressive house, but there are some house, trance, and breakbeat releases. The first five installments were live recorded from respective clubs, while the rest are mixed and recorded in a studio.
Each issue in the series is based on the idea that Global Underground would take DJs to play a party in one of the most unusual, exotic clubbing locations on Earth. The set is then released in a 2CD format that is formatted to capture the night of the party and the overall feel of the DJ visit in music, contemporary photography and extensive sleeve notes.
