In 1999, Karl Hyde began writing a public diary. Every day since then, Hyde has documented his thoughts, lyrical works-in-progress, poetry and biographical essays alongside found visuals. Interweaving a selection of his entries with an autobiographical narrative, I Am Dogboy follows Hyde from childhood through the exploratory early years of Underworld, an electronic act who have been peerless for the last 25 years.
Spliced throughout the narrative are standalone/abstract poetic pieces that offer occasional snapshots of life on the road and in the studio and give insight into Hyde’s singular style of lyric writing.
Karl Hyde is one half of Underworld, a pioneering electronic duo that has been one of the UK’s most consistently acclaimed bands for the best part of three decades. Underworld’s most recent LP – ‘Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future’, is their most successful since 1999 and has just received a Grammy Nominee for Best Dance/Electronic Album 2017. In 2016, they played festivals across the world, including Coachella and have just announced a headline slot for Miami’s Ultra Fest 2017.
