Singles Box Set - (1999)
One of the most popular crossover dance acts in the world, Underworld fortunately still held onto a bit of credibility with DJs and remixers. This is a collection of three CD-5 singles, encompassing remixes and B-sides for the singles "Push Upstairs," "Jumbo," "King of Snake," and "Bruce Lee." The roster of remixers is simply stunning, with all factions of the dance world accounted for. From mainstream America comes Roger Sanchez; for hard-edged British techno there's Dave Clarke and Slam; and for the more "intelligent," self-referential brand of electronic dance there's the Jedis (aka Global Communication) and Salt City Orchestra. Though rock fans who've gradually gotten into Underworld may tire of hearing the same "song" several times in a row, the variety and quality of sounds are excellent. The few B-sides are obviously album rejects, though interesting to hear nonetheless.
