"Clubbed to Death" samples "It's a New Day" by Skull Snaps.
The short strings intro is an excerpt from the first movement of Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations, and the piano solo is improvised around Enigma Variations as well.
The drum'n'bass producer Peshay's mix of "Clubbed to Death" was included on the Big Brother soundtrack, following the first series of Big Brother in the UK.
Rob Dougan frequently attempts different variations of the same track, which usually find their way onto single releases. The "Kurayamino variation" of "Clubbed to Death" is significantly more well-known than any other version due to frequent radio and club play, and later to its appearance in the 1999 film The Matrix. As a result, when people reference "Clubbed to Death," they generally mean the "Kurayamino variation" rather than "The First Mix" (both versions were available on the 1995 initial releases on Mo' Wax).
The subtitle Kurayamino variation is Japanese for darkness's variation (暗闇（くらやみ） kurayami means darkness, and の no is the genitive suffix). It denotes Dougan's own mix in a tragic style, as well as his stated inspirations from dark Japanese writers such as Yukio Mishima or Yasunari Kawabata.
