Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

It is safe to assume that most young people of the current generation have fond memories of spending long hours indoors in their summer downtime. Although some were sent away to quaint sleepaway camps, others preferred the company of a television, an RF adapter, and our dear old friend Nintendo.

This week's playlist features remixes, mashups, and original material done by musicians who make no secret of their nostalgia. Each track features material done with synths that directly resemble the same music that young gamers spent hours and hours while they raged uncontrollably, flinging controllers across living rooms far and wide.

As always, we invite you to visit our official 8tracks.com profile, where you can listen to the current playlist, as well as previous entries. While you're at it, make your own profile, create a playlist, and share it with us.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
