On a whim last night, I decided to come up with a mix tape of 90s dance/electronics songs I loved. I was listening to that dance/techno station at the end of the radio dial(107.9, i think) and heard a song sampling Armand Van Helden’s “U Don’t Know Me” and I got majorly excited. In the danger of sounding terribly old but that song was one of THE club anthems of 1999. And boy, do I miss 90s/early 00s clubbing!
So I’ve been listening to a whole lot of dance music from my clubbing years. Yes, kids, Lola Grace used to go to dance clubs and raves back in the day! Webster Hall, Limelight, NYC’s Twilo, etc. Heck, Manila kids, do you remember the Consortiums? Ah yes, those were the days. Anyway, here’s my mix tape:
A little cliche, but who cares? Anybody who spent their young adulthood in the 90s/early 00s will agree that they cannot not dance when a Daft Punk or Chemical Brothers song is playing. I was going to add “better off alone” or something as cheesy as that song but it just didn’t sound right – I could not finish listening to that Alice Deejay club anthem in its entirety at this day and age. I guess it didn’t hold up as well as these songs.
Here’s a link to the mix tape. Enjoy! Music is a gift!
