Nite Versions is an electronic album by Soulwax. It was released on September 26, 2005 on the PIAS record label. The album contains reworkings and remixes of tracks from earlier Soulwax album Any Minute Now. The album also features "Teachers" (a track inspired by the Daft Punk song of the same name from their album Homework in which their musical influences are listed off) and "NY Lipps", a 2 Many DJ's-style mash-up of "NY Excuse" with Lipps Inc.'s 70's disco track "Funky Town". The artwork for Singles from Any Minute Now, and Nite Versions, and for the album Any Minute Now, form illusions Illusion. The album artwork was produced by Trevor Jackson.

Like all other Soulwax albums, there is a hidden track before the start of track 1. The 51-second instrumental is untitled, but is an alternate version of the guitar riff from the original version of E Talking.

"Slowdance" can be found on their remix album This Is Radio Soulwax.

"Another Excuse" and "Compute" is featured in Test Drive Unlimited.
