    Default Anyone notice this latest trend in DJ's sets?

    It seems like a lot of big names have been putting old, classic rock, grunge rock samples into their mixes.

    For example I've heard

    A couple of Nirvana songs, most notably "smells like teen spirit"
    Almost positive i heard a clash song
    REM; predicting that in the second half of the year as we near december '12 "it's the end of the world as we know it" will be embedded in multiple mixes
    Red Hot Chilis
    And just all in all, a lot of 80s rock and pop

    Though I'm new to dj'ing, is this also new or has it been around? I've been listening to essential mixes for awhile so I know there's always a ton of 70s-90s hip hop put in mixes and even some 80s pop, but rock? It's really different and I must say that I absolutely love it, what's your guys' opinions/comments?

    Everything's a Remix, seriously if anyone hasn't watched at least an episode of that series give it a go.

    because the kids who grew up listening to that music - or grew up with their older brother and sister listening to it - are becoming club goers as they turn 21, so it makes sense.

    hmm, weird that I havn't really noticed it before even though I've been "in the genre" for 3 years now.

    And that makes sense, the whole growing up thing. I grew up with this type of music so it's really quite refreshing to hear it play and remind me of my childhood

    I was seeing this and doing this back in 99-02 and it was not new. I still love it though.

    nothing new man. Red hot chillis, coldplay, killers, all that harmonic kinda soft rock always gets remixed.

    There were a couple of big tracks that came out not long after Teen Spirit blew up. A few of them ended up being re-edited just enough as to avoid the lawyers.
    Beats By Dre is like audio flu for your balls.

    Rage against the Machine - Killing in the name often makes sneaky appearances in one form or another in harder electro sets.
