Are You That Somebody

Once again, we find ourselves simultaneously feeling older than we rightfully should, while also relishing in the nostalgia that comes with hearing one of the most iconic songs from our high school years. Once again, it’s at the hands of decade-blending Producer/DJ VenessaMichaels. And, once again, we’re grinning ear-to-ear as we take in her latest interpretation of a 90’s dance tune.

The affectionately coined style of #2090 is just as it seems – a perfect illustration of this artist’s love of the 90’s and dance music of today. Her latest effort is a delicious, dancy, future bass interpretation of the Grammy-nominated “Are You That Somebody,” from Aaliyah. Amidst the well placed clicks, pops, and drips, we find surging synths, and artfully-crafted vocal samples from Aaliyah, Timbaland, and that unforgettable cooing baby from Perrey and Kingsley’s 1966 hit “Countdown at 6.” The combination is something that comes together effortlessly, as if elements from these two decades were made for each other.

Aside from those warm-n-fuzzies from the past, and the TMN HQ dance party we’re currently engaged in, we’re excited about this premiere for another reason – we’d bringing in VenessaMichaels as our next Resident Artist of the Month. She’ll be following up Flux Pavilion, and helping us ring in the new year with some exclusive content.
