Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections — old and new — in an attempt to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.
To help you celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, we’ve dug up our favorite 90s remixes so you can re-live your childhood, teenage years or rather just learn about the wonderful music associated with the era. To start off we have a Flight Facilities mashup of Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity”, Notorious BIG’s “Hypnotize” and The Fugees “Killing Me Softly,” then off to Follow Me’s “Unpretty” TLC retake, a Drunkmaster Flex & eSenTRik remix of the late Aaliyah’s “If Your Girl only Knew,” a Viceroy version of Will Smith’s “Getting Jiggy wit it,” and ending with Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time” redone by Louis La Roche.
Many producers have attempted to remix tracks of the late R&B princess Aaliyah and few have done so with the polished precision of Skream. The dubstep producer’s latest release “Kreepin’” is his take on Aaliyah’s notorious song “If Your Girl Only Knew,” giving listeners more ’90s R&B inspired house productions from the UK. Touching on the sounds of garage, Skream maintains the soul of the 1996 original while adding the 2-step rhythm of newcomers like Disclosure and Bondax have helped champion. The rework was featured in Skream’s December mix last year and now the track is available as a free download.

Aaliyah’s singing career was cut (way too) short when she died tragically in a plane crash in 2001 at only 22 years of age. Despite Aaliyah’s untimely death, her contributions have not been forgotten — even in the dance music world. Although touching her songs has proven to be a sensitive subject, Hucci Gurl delivers a remix that pays appropriate homage to the late, great Princess of R&B. Her trap remix is smooth, simple, and even dare I say it, classy. Trap detractors should try this one on for size.
