After last week's Aaliyah tribute, I found myself not only re-watching Queen of the Damned, but parsing my Aaliyah collection for some gems I could share with the SoulBounce Reader.
So I came across Armand Van Helden's Drum 'N Bass remix of "One In A Million". Van Helden is major, having remixed tracks for Diddy, Janet Jackson and Britney Spears. But his biggest hits (at least for me) are house classics "U Don't Know Me" with Duane Harden and "Witch Doktor". Can the children feel me on this?
As with most Drum 'N Bass, this mix is dark and futuristic, very Matrix-y, and embodies the aesthetic that has always been a part of Aaliyah's mystique. This is probably the only remix of "One In a Million" that flips the original without sacrificing the feel.
