Old Remix From Nu Shooz

I think hearing this remix this was probably the first time I really got a feel for what a sampler can really do. Well no, I guess Art of Noise has that honor. But this was the era for putting the kitchen sink through a sampler to see what happens.

The Drone Bros really brought the freakshow to the dance floor by looping and pitching everything completely out of proportion with I Can't Wait, thus making a 12 year-old me quite happy. And that vocal "uh" sample - the very meaning of iconic.

Nu Shooz - I Can't Wait (Long Dutch Mix)

This is also one of the first remixes I ever heard. Finding the vinyl 12" one day after getting out of Jr. High was like being touched by the hand of the remix god.
