There's no telling exactly what the staff looks like at the Zellers chain of department stores in Canada. Unlike its U.S. counterpart like Target, you could only hope that the shopper's wet dream is true to the other one-stop-shops that were more popular in the '80s—complete with cashiers who wear too much makeup, shiny French Tip manicures and guys with mullets and the occasional eye-makeup on Casual Fridays. That weirdness didn't last long moving at the light-speed of the uptempo love songs that came out during this time. Why no one thought like Canadian producer CFCF to slow down those throwbacks is more boggling than solving a Rubix cube. On his recent mix of R&B throwbacks, he dirties them up dragging their pitch level through a muddy groove, which is completely the opposite of the glam sound of yesteryear, but just right for today's screwed (and chopped) up times.
