Nike7Up’s July Mix MP3


Buried under all that growling and gawky teenage rage, Jonathan Davis of Korn made a lot of kids feel okay about not feeling okay. As adults, that music seems a little less comforting and a lot more harshly alienating. But taken out of context, as he is briefly on this Nike7Up mix with the lyrics You flirt with suicide/ sometimes that’s okay, he sounds like the dude that maybe has the worst advice ever for you, but also gets it, you know? Then it’s immediately followed up by a Britney Spears sample. Nike7Up has made patchworking moments of heart-on-sleeve ’90s gloss his entire style, and with this mix it is instantly clear that the more music he makes, the more he develops his own dark world. How deep you get sucked in pretty much depends on how high your ratio of angst to total viewings of TRL is.

    perfect as usual

  2. Patrik says:

    Calling this ’90s is kind of a stretch. TRL was a 2000s TV show, Britney’s career began in the late late ’90s but she is more of a last-decade artist as well. That Korn song was popular in Y2K. It came out in December of 1999. Turn of the millennium?

  3. Sam Hockley-Smith says:

    @Patrik: You’re right. I generally think of TRL as the epitome of 1999 in my head, but generally, you’re right. Most of the music (and nu-metal as an entire genre) began (and peaked) between like 1999-2003.
