Your eyes are not deceiving you. Los Angeles indie r&b duo Skin Town titled its Friday Night contribution after famed Canadian and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Mr. Silver Side Up. Mr. How You Remind Me. Mr. Angel Wings Graphic T-Shirt. Mr. Avril Lavigne.
Even when prompted to offer some insight into their mix, Skin Town relayed “Party island Caribbean jamz 4 late nite lifestyle. Songs about horoscopes and braids. Whatever we want to play.” Cryptic – though I think the “whatever we want” portion has a bit to do with a cover at a strip club.
For a mix titled after one of the most loathed musicians to achieve world-renowned fame to a point that the Internet has deemed his marriage to Avril Lavigne a sign of the apocalypse, Skin Town sure did bring the fuggin' jams. It's a mix that offers insight into Skin Town's comfort zone, which potentially informed the sultry approach on The Room. Skin Town could slip its single “Slidin'” in behind KP &Envy's “Swing My Way” without disrupting the vibe that extends into Future's “Turn On The Lights” or was established earlier from Usher's “Climax” (Duchovny Bootleg).
