Rick Smith with the SSL L500
Romford, UK — Influential British electronic dance act Underworld has chosen a Solid State Logic L500 as performance tool for its live tours. The console joins founder-member Rick Smith on stage as a fast, versatile, creative instrument, allowing him to combine old-school dub mixing techniques with the best in performance technology.
It has been 20 years since the original release of Underworld’s ground-breaking album dubnobasswithmyheadman, and the anniversary was marked with a re-mastered release, accompanied by a tour that showcased the band’s legendary live work. For this and the subsequent global festival tour founder member Rick Smith’s new instrument of choice was an SSL L500 console, allowing him to combine old-school dub mixing techniques with the best in performance technology.
