SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY – TAKE 3): 2 Unlimited – Get Ready For This (Steve Aoki Remix)
Every part of ’90s music is coming back, and it seems like the appropriate artist is choosing an appropriate sound. The big electro guys are incorporating old school rave, the cool hipsters are bringing back underground house, and the pop rappers and singers are reworking europop classics. With that in mind, it makes sense that the king of big room party DJs, Steve Aoki, would take on the massive sports arena anthem “Get Ready For This.” Even if you don’t know the title of the song, as soon as the hook comes in – you’re hyped and there’s energy in the room. Steve Aoki keeps the hooks in place and modernizes the sound from ’90s techno to ’10s electro. Whereas there have been many 2 Unlimited remixes over the years, the remixers often made the mistaken assumption that increasing the tempo of a record adds the energy. With THAT classic hook and a bit of electro and glitch, Steve Aoki has put his signature on a true techno classic. Close your eyes and you can imaging him crowdsurfing in an inflatable raft while popping champagne as he is playing this record, with the crowd going nuts. This easily ranks up there along with the Vengaboys “Hot Hot Hot” as one of the biggest mainstream party records of the summer.]
