VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Run D.M.C vs. Jason Nevins – ‘It’s Like That’

April 16, 2018

Released on cassette back in ’83, Run D.M.C’s original broke plenty of new ground. But it’s the ’97 Jason Nevins remix we’re concerned with today.

With the simple addition of a pumping backbeat and a since much-imitated video (featuring groups of Young People dancing aggressively at each other in a multi-story car park) Nevins turned the track into the biggest selling UK single of 1998.

That’s 1998 – Britpop was at its peak and Hip-Hop’s chart domination was stil almost a decade away.

But not only did ‘It’s Like That’ cut through the relentless guitar racket to achieve near-ubiquity, it broke The Spice Girls consecutive run of number ones, keeping ‘Stop’ off the top spot.

And that’s the way it is.
