There's also a photographic exhibition, and club nights in London and Amsterdam

Global Underground is 20 years old, and the iconic label is pulling out all the stops by way of celebration, with an album, single, book, photo exhibition and a series of club events all in the works.

Leading the charge will be TWENTY, a three-disc, 50-track celebration of the label's back catalogue, complete with many new mixes and exclusives. The unmixed third CD, The Future, will feature 10 exclusive tracks from rising stars such as Dale Middleton, Habischmann and Third Son. The album is available digitally and in two physical formats - choose between the basic 'three discs plus a 24-page booklet' version or a Super Deluxe Collector's Edition, which comprises the three CDs plus triple vinyl and a 112-page, 12-inch sized hardback photography book.

The photos in the book are culled from Global Underground's archive of over 100,000 pictures from their travels around the world, which will also form the basis of a photography exhibition at Edwin Jeans Exhibition Space on Brick Lane, east London from 28 October to 10 November. Entry to the exhibition is free.

Party-wise, look out for Global Underground TWENTY parties at ADE (Q Factory, 20 October) with James Lavelle, Darren Emerson, Habischmann and more TBA, and at Ministry Of Sound in London on 28 October (line-up TBA).

Finally, 20 October also sees the 100th release from sub-label GUMUSIC, a reissue of Roland Klinkenburg ft DJ Remy's Mexico Can Wait with new mixes from Gabriel Ananda and Matthew Jonson.
