Any song called "1999" is going to be nostalgic, but you may not be ready for how nostalgic the latest from DJ Crypt will make you. "1999" isn't quite a mash-up or a sonic collage. Instead, it's a basic song structure with little snippets of various hip hop songs from the 90's. The pieces of the songs all invoke reminiscing or talking about the past. There are a lot that include the line "back in the day." It's a song about thinking about your past using parts of songs about thinking about the past. It's a clever and fairly cinematic technique that is going to make you reminisce just based on the samples used.
You can listen to "1999" below. Gineses is due out April 28 on Goon Musick. For more on DJ Crypt, check out the artist on Instagram and Facebook.
