SINGLE // Foreigner :: Cold As Ice ((A. Skillz & Nick Thayer Bootleg))

A. Skillz and Nick Thayer detonated a banger on SoundCloud yesterday, collecting over 18,000 plays in 24 hours with an epic breaks remix of Foreigner‘s “Cold As Ice.”

Foreigner :: Cold As Ice (A.Skillz & Nick Thayer Bootleg)

This is Nick Thayer‘s second UFO appearance in a week, bringing similar heat as part of OWSLA’s Free Treats Vol. 2.  The most likely reason you won’t like this track is if Skrillex backlash is a priority to you (it does sound a lot like “Reptile”).  To that, I have to say that Nick Thayer and A. Skillz have been spinning electro breaks for longer than Skrillex’s existence, and if anything, they deserve original credit for “something that sounds like Nick Thayer and A. Skillz.”

For even funkier breaks from these two, check out this other collab on Juno Download.  How could you go wrong with something named Insane Bangers Vol. 8?

BONUS :: Check out the original Foreigner track, trying not to imagine Mick Jones with Skrillex hair.
