Nuxx, extended mix was allways the one for me from when i first started hearing it on JJJ radio station here in Aus back in good old 1996, i didn't really like the re arrangement of the lyrics on some of the other mixes, unlike powerstone with his "sick beats and keyboards" bollocks but hates the lyrics !!!! well fuck that, the lyrics are fuckin brilliant and if anything adds to the atmosphere rather than detracting but what the fuck, each to their own, music is all in the ears of the beholder. For me Born slippy is a prime example of how electronic music doesn't conform to the standard lyrical arrangement of pop music, pop music is based on the verse followed by chorus followed by verse followed by chorus arrangemnent which to me is so fucking boring and unimaginative, where as the lyrical arrangement of a track like born slippy conforms to no lyrical formula, there is no verse and chorus and virtually no repetition, the lyric ends before the track is even half way through and you never ever see this sort of inventive lyrical arrangement in contemporary pop. Born slippy is a 5/5

Note about track 2 on this release: The "Nuxx Mix" is the exact same track (except some very minor technical/mastering differences perhaps) that appears for example on this release as track 1: Underworld - Born Slippy.NUXX

Both Darren Price Remixes are very good and my favorite versions as they really inspired me in the mid/late 90s. Unlike most other remixers Darren made something completely different of Born Slippy.
Remix 1 has some kind of Jungle-Beat with subbass, sharp, filtered synth play and overlayed lyrics of the original.
Remix 2 is faster, more energetic and more dubby. It builds up continuously in the first half and becomes a bit epic in the second half with that ambient kind-of synth line and that repeating, short vocal.
Too bad these have been a bit overlooked (or ignored?) due to the massive success of the NUXX version back then. This Australian release btw. is the only one that includes both remixes by Darren on a single 12" vinyl.

I was hoping for something better! Sick keyboards, sick percussion, sick beat, but fatally bad vocals. They totally kill the atmosphere for me, and it sounds like rambling that just never ends... I don't know how people actually like it, but I guess it just isn't my cup of tea.

The Darren Price remix of 'Born Slippy' and the Alex Reece remix of 'Banstyle' on this release are both excellent. Pretty rare to have two good tracks on the b-side to a track like this, and to have an excellent remix of it as well. Underworld seem to lend themselves well to remixing. There were a few great mixes of 'King of Snake' as well. The Dave Clarke mix being one of them.

Darren Price's "Remix" of Born Slippy NUXX (i.e. the second one found on this release, eight minutes long) is actually a remix of Banstyle. Not sure if this mislabel was intentional or not, but it's clearly a remix of Banstyle and not Slippy - listen especially towards the end of the track.

You know NUXX. Everyone knows NUXX, thanks to Trainspotting. After that, NUXX became just "Born Slippy" in most people's minds. But it isn't. "Born Slippy" is the A-side of this release, and if it has anything at all whatsoever in common with its more famous flipside, I've never been able to work out what. There's no vocal, no pads, same bpm but it feels like a different tempo, completely different vibe... and I always preferred it. Complex breakbeat drum patterns, layer upon layer of synth lines building, building, building, building to a huge crescendo... this is what Underworld should be about: epic progressive emotive synthesis. Not "lager lager lager lager".

Entirely a more beautiful track, the original is magnificent.
Weaving and building and utterly unforgiving and stained (if not scarred) by it's younger brother's ASBO behaviour, just home from a lager-frenzy, puking on your neighbours dog...
Reminiscent of Floyd going at it full pelt (with a drum machine), back when Syd was driving and no-one knew what the other was playing but it just sounded so bloody amazing.....
