PLAYLIST: Feelin' All Y2K Again
The 'Millennial' generation has been lauded as prematurely-nostalgic adult children that are fond of primitive Internet art, VHS tapes, photo filters and platform tennis shoes. Whether or not this is the case, we’ve grown-up and pirated all kinds of production software in order to flood the Internet with homages to those most beloved relics of our recent childhoods.
Personally, I have zero qualms admitting that a not-insignificant (OK, so maybe some qualms) percentage of the tracks I consume on a daily basis are just remixes of songs I liked in middle school. But I’m an adult now, so más bass, por favor.
This list is hardly exhaustive, but here are a few standout millennium-era remixes from 2012.
Ginuwine - Differences (Hazy Hood Bootleg)
Craig David - Fill Me In (Ryan Hemsworth Bootleg)
Make it Hot at Nightfall (Nguzunguzu Edit)
