I really dig this... I think if there was a re-edit that took out the handbaggy bits it would be quite a different type of tune (while still being the same actual tune somehow) and I would like it even more, although it would be veering away from this thread.
I did contemplate actually doing that, but in the current clubbing climate it might not make sense to remove the more euro housey/handbaggy elements as this is a nice middle ground for when you have to dj for a 2022 crowd of younger folks. Obviously a lot of you aren't djs and so what younger people are actually playing in clubs, or dancing to doesn't matter so much any more.
I do wonder if the sudden comeback of eurohouse and other similarly mawkish styles of music is a result of young people who run clubnights playing more hyperpop and nightcore in their sets. Some of the events i have witnessed have been leaning into it so far that you'll hear all types of twee japanese computer game breakcore and k-pop next to your Sophie's and 100 gecs type stuff and the dancefloor will be going off.
I noticed that previously respectable d&b djs who are maybe mid to late 20s will be incorporating happy hardcore and cheesier jungle techno into their sets, whereas the 18-25 jungle djs are often just straight up playing toytown happy hardcore, gabba, 160-200bpm remixes of the absolute cheesiest pop songs.
So it would make sense for people who are plugged into the scene to be taking notice of what young people are actually embracing on the dancefloor, and then try to incorporate some element of it as either an entry point, or just to feel like they are staying current.
Or whatever, what do i know anyway?
Is there a worse cover of the Corona song than this one? I had to take it off a family member's wedding playlist recently.
