After Underworld's flaming performance at Sónar 2011, we've gone all nostalgic and have decided to list our favourite remixes by one of the most important electronic bands. There aren't too many, it has to be said, but it's worth it if only to recover some brilliant unknown pieces; such as their reinterpretation of Front 242's “Happiness” or Model 500's “The Flow”, when they hadn't even recorded their first album, “Dubnobasswithmyheadman” (1993). More proof that Karl Hyde, Rick Smith and - back in the day - Darren Emerson, are equally skilled in making their own music and handling other people's material.
1. Front 242: “Happiness (Dance Mix By Underworld)” 2. Massive Attack: “Risingson (Underworld Remix)” 3. David Lynch: “Good Day Today (Underworld Classic Remix)” 4. Depeche Mode: “Barrel Of A Gun (Underworld Soft Remix)” 5. Model 500: “The Flow (Underworld Mk. 1 Mix)” 6. Saint Etienne: “Cool Kids Of Death (Underworld Mix)” 7. Björk: “Human Behaviour” 8. The Chemical Brothers: “Leave Home (Underworld Mix II)” 9. William Orbit: “Water From A Vine Leaf (Underworld Mix Part 1)” 10. Spooky: “Schmoo (Underworld Mix)”
After their hugely successful gig at Sónar 2011, we decided to make a list of the best remixes by the British twosome. From the ones everybody knows (Depeche Mode and Björk) to old rarities (Front 242 and Model 500).
