I’ve been sleeping on the original it’s fair to say. After checking it on Youtube earlier, since July last year, it’s clocked up a total of 91 million views. It appears to be a favourite amongst literally everyone with it’s feel good 80’s theme.
I then came across a remix by Miami Nights 1984 which is embodies everything I love about the era. It’s got the signature drums and gradual build up which you could easily imagine featuring on the Miami Vice OST or even Scarface.
The 80’s for me is the decade of great movies accompanied by even better soundtracks. It’s good to hear producers continuing to pay homeage to that period.
