Louis Millne Reimagines Turn-of-the-Century Hip-Hop for the Dancefloor: Listen to “W.Y.G.D.”

Louis Millne isn't afraid to play with the past, but he brings it screaming into the future with his new single, "W.Y.G.D."

Out now via House Hats, the deep tech track samples Fat Joe and Nelly's 2005 hip-hop hit "Get It Poppin'" and flips it on its head like a backwards fitted Yankee cap. Stripped-down samples—just enough to ignite the memory banks—are interpolated and layered over a thick bassline.

Millne has masterfully crafted a hypnotic, minimalistic rhythm that'll keep you locked in and sweating buckets. It's a testament to the timeless appeal of turn-of-the-century hip-hop, and a reminder that sometimes, less is more when it comes to creating dancefloor dynamite.

Prior to its release, "W.Y.G.D." received early support from Sosa, Marco Carola and Joshwa and many more. Millne also a monster summer on the horizon as he gears up for performances at Creamfields and Abode Records' residency at Eden Ibiza, among others. Take a listen to the new track below.
