Underworld – Born Slippy (NUXX)

“Born Slippy .NUXX” is a song by British electronic group Underworld. It was released in July 1996 as a single and preceded in January 1995 by a release of the similarly named but completely different track “Born Slippy”, which featured “Born Slippy .NUXX” as a B-side.
“Born Slippy .NUXX” was released as a single in its own right in the wake of the 1996 Danny Boyle film Trainspotting, where it could be heard in the final scene. The movie stoked immense public interest in the previously little-known track, helping the single peak at number 2 on the UK Singles Chart in July 1996. The track became known as simply “Born Slippy” despite the fact that “Born Slippy” is the title of the completely different 1995 track – the Trainspotting soundtrack album prominently credits it as simply “Born Slippy”, only in the inner liner notes does it more correctly list it as “Born Slippy (NUXX)”.
