This '90s adult contemporary and EDM mashup is cringeworthy magic

Hoobastank never sounded so good thanks to DJ George Costanza.
Have you ever wanted, no needed, to hear all-time classic tracks like Train’s “Drops of Jupiter” or “Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White T’s chopped and filtered into a batshit insane club mix? What’s that? “Of course not”? Well, don’t worry, the Internet’s got you…wait, what? Dude, get with the program, irony is the currency of our times, since apparently no one is making any actual currency! Fill your irony coffers to the brim with a new cringey mix of early-00s maudlin mania, presented by Nina Pop Records.
DJ George Costanza, who is one-half of a New-York based (smart money says Brooklyn) crunk-metal project (yep, Brooklyn) called Extreme Animals, has created a perfect audio wormhole of airhorn blasts, DJ drops and trap beats, all tied together by the syrupy likes of Daniel Powter and Hoobastank. Relive all those awkward 10th-grade moments at Much Video Dances while a beat-heavy remix The Hoob blares through your earbuds, it’s like heaven on earth! Though to be fair, if Much Video Dances had been this lit, North America’s EDM-splosion would’ve come a lot sooner and we’d all be jammin’ What are Dynamics? 20 Years of Skrillex right now.
