INFO > It was only while conducting my customary research for today’s post that I discovered the original mix of “Born Slippy.” Karl Hyde and Rick Smith’s instrumental is significantly different than their vocal version, “Born Slippy .NUXX”, which became a massive hit following its inclusion on the “Trainspotting” soundtrack. Presented here are the 1995 release and the 1996 reissue.

NOTE > It’s possible that the ‘Darren Price Remix’ of “Born Slippy .NUXX” is actually a rework of “Banstyle”—at 5.26, the lyric “Rest your head” from “Banstyle” is repeated.

  1. Killer track! Thank you

  2. would love to download the tracks but mega has a problem

    • I just tested the link – about halfway through, the speed slowed to a crawl. Not cool. Sorry about that.

      I’ve been exiled from ADrive, 4Shared, MediaFire, and Zippyshare. If Mega becomes a problem, I’m giving up.

  3. people use Mpony program dj shelf go on YANDEX RU

  4. I really enjoy your website and i mentioned the problem with the d/l so maybe you could reupload the track. Please don’t quit doing what you do.

    • I do appreciate that – thanks. Unfortunately, file hosting has been an ongoing and frustrating problem. If it’s not free and easy to maintain the blog, then it’s not worth the effort.

      By the way, just tested that link again and it worked. Mega might be messing with users to push paid service, just as ADrive did last year.

      • The download worked fine today, no problems at all. MEGA is a good hoster: If there’s a problem, it’s usually only temporary. So just try to download again the next day.

        THANK YOU you for your uploads, Shelf! I really enjoy these musical journeys back into the 90s.

  5. you need to keep this blog going. please persevere

  6. COOL! I have both singles, the re-issue boing a digipack. I love the remixes…

    For the download-troubles: get the official (Mac – not sure for Windows) application from MEGAsync, it downloads direct instead of through the website. Worked for me!

    On-topic: I know there was a re-issue in 2006 with other remixes, yet I can’t find it anywhere… You have it? :D
