"Papua New Guinea" is a 1991 song by the electronic music group Future Sound of London. It was the group's debut single and later appeared on their full-length album "Accelerator" it reached #22 on the UK singles chart. The track has been remixed and released many times since its original release, both legitimately and in bootleg format on CD, Vinyl and Cassette.

The track

The song became a popular rave and club track almost immediately upon its release. The original mix notably samples the bassline from Meat Beat Manifesto's proto-jungle track "Radio Babylon", vocal samples of Lisa Gerrard's singing lifted from the Dead Can Dance song "Dawn Of The Iconoclast", from their 1987 album "Within the Realm of a Dying Sun" and "Shelter Me" by Circuit. "Papua New Guinea" was perhaps FSOL's most club-oriented track; most of the remixes on the single are very dancefloor-friendly. After "Accelerator"'s release, however, they moved in increasingly ambient and experimental directions.

In 2001, a new set of remixes was released by FSOL's label, Jumpin' & Pumpin'. Soon after that, Future Sound of London themselves released "Papua New Guinea Translations", which extended the track into a 45-minute-long EP.

Papua New Guinea was featured in the 1992 film "Cool World". In the film, Garry Cobain was mis-credited as "Garry Cockbain", which was the original spelling of his name. [ [http://www.discogs.com/artist/Garry+Cobain Garry Cobain ] ] .

The track remains arguably their most recognizable and celebrated song, it has made several (British) "...best songs ever" polls and track specific accolades.
