Time-stretched remixes of Microsoft startup sounds: they just never get old. But maybe we need this vaporwave Windows 98 in our lives.
The source material in this case isn’t Brian Eno – that’s Windows 95. Instead, Microsoft’s own Ken Kato is credited with the composition.
Apart from the glitched-out thumbnail and wonderful sound, I’ll give extra points to this remix on a couple of counts.

The Virtual Plaza welcomes you, and you will welcome it too.”
— Adam Harper, in his initial Dummymag article
