UNKLE is a British musical outfit founded in 1994 by school friends James Lavelle and Tim Goldsworthy. Originally categorized as trip-hop, the group once included producer DJ Shadow and has employed a variety of guest artists and producers.
The first release was the EP The Time Has Come, created by Lavelle and Goldsworthy with Kudo and T. Nakanishi of the Japanese Hip Hop crew Major Force. At this point, Unkle consisted of Lavelle, Goldsworthy and Kudo, who surrounded themselves with various guest artists. In 1995, whilst working on their debut album, Goldsworty and Lavelle disagreed over the direction the music was taking.
Lavelle drafted in DJ Shadow and essentially discarded all previously recorded material.
Forme producer Richard File remixed the track "Unreal", adding vocals by Ian Brown. In 2001, Lavelle and File resurfaced as Unklesounds with a DJ mix created for Japanese radio entitled Do Androids Dream of Electric Beats?.
Richard File co-produced, played and sang on 2003's Never, Never, Land.
In September 2006, Global Underground released Self Defence: Never, Never, Land Reconstructed and Bonus Beats, a CD box set of remixes and bonus tracks related to Never, Never, Land, including tracks previously only available on the original DVD release of the album. It also contains remixes of a track mooted from the forthcoming album, featuring Ian Astbury of The Cult, titled "Burn My Shadow".
War Stories, the third album from Unkle, was released in Japan on June 20, 2007 Europe and the UK on July 9, 2007, followed by a July 24 release date in North America.
Since the release of the song "Heaven" (from the single "Hold My Hand"), Pablo Clements (of The Psychonauts) is credited as an Unkle member.
UNKLE's fourth album titled "End Titles" is completed and is slated for a June 2008 release.
