Typically speaking, when a song gets remixed the artist in charge adds layers of new sounds and speeds up/slows down the vocals (or rearranges them entirely), essentially creating a new track entirely. However, in this particular instance, that's not the case at all. Working under the moniker "Nothing and Nobody," Mark Hoppus
teamed up with friend and engineer/producer Chris Holmes
to strip down Nova Rockafeller
's ode to the Gameboy decade, "1990s." Where the original features a fair amount of video game influenced bleeps and bloops and mechanical drums, Hoppus and Holmes opted for live instrumentation, giving the track a raw rock 'n' roll feel that would make the '90s legends referenced in the song proud. Stream the Nothing and Nobody remix of "1990s" above.
"1990s" is the first single off Nova Rockafeller's debut EP from Boardwalk Entertainment and is due out this Spring.
