After wearing out our '80s nostalgia on the dancefloor all through the 2000s, it's safe to say we've now collectively moved into full-blown '90s retro mode.
You can hear it across clubland, where DJs everywhere have started to drop their fair share of jacking house classics from seminal '90s labels like Murk and Strictly Rhythm -- not to mention the forthrightly '90s-styled new releases by everyone from Steffi to Hercules & Love Affair.
But if there's one act that has made '90s appreciation its raison d'être, it's beloved Boston DJ-production duo Soul Clap.
The pair is renowned for '90s pop edits and hosting infamous jams in Beantown for years. And more recently, they threw a smashing London edition of the party alongside house legend Robert Owens and UK scene veteran Danny Rampling.
Now it's Miami's turn to take a trip down memory lane with the Clap when they bring their Yo Yo Yo! '90s Jam to the Electric Pickle on Wednesday night. Expect a cheesy feel-good dose of R&B à la Maxi Priest, hip-hop from the likes of Biggie and 2 Live Crew, assorted ironic pop jams, and pretty much everything else you got down to in junior high.
Don't forget your Reebok Pumps and acid-washed jeans!
Yo Yo Yo! '90s Jam with Soul Clap. Wednesday, March 2. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The party starts at 10 p.m. Call 305-456-5613 or visit electricpicklemiami.com.
