You've gone your own idiosyncratic way since the 1990s. You've refused labels, moved in and out of different scenes and styles, achieving different forms of success in different parts of the world. Sometimes you've been a band, sometimes a production team, sometimes a bunch of DJs, sometimes simply indescribable. You still thrive in a world where everything you've ever done is instantly available from the start of the story up to the present.
People are never sure of who you are, yourself included. Members come, go, come back, but it's not a question of joining or leaving, so weren't they always members in any case? You've been described as a collective but that's too solid a definition. You're closer to an anarchic self-built non-structure that goes its own way, follows its own plans and those so-called members, most of whom aren't members at all, simply follow. Once the city was a joyful noise, one big random pirate radio playing random music from random cultures making random connections across lines of history, genre and lifestyle. The rules weren't being broken, they'd simply disappeared and the growth of sampling, electronica and dance culture invited a future full of possibility. Now that future has arrived and turns out it's a bleak forest of red crane lights. What isn't burned down is sold off and replaced, and a new city, designed to streamline and neuter any creativity, builds walls to keep out its own inhabitants. So, in reaction, you keep shining your own light. You keep following your own path. You keep it funky. And, when the walls are put up, you listen to the walls until the walls listen back. 'Walls Have Ears' is the new album from Transglobal Underground, featuring family members from the beginning, the present and the future, including Natacha Atlas, Sheema Mukherjee, Inder Goldfinger.
