Earlier in the year Nick Thayer pulled off the impossible and released an enjoyable “Barbara Streisand” remix. Amongst the vast ocean of garbage trying to catch some residual fire off of Duck Sauce’s megahit, Thayer’s was the only one that was allowed an exclusive villa on my hard drive.
I recently started digging through his releases including a brand new album, “Just Let It Go” and I can’t understand why he doesn’t have a larger presence in the United States. He’s tackled remixes of some huge tracks and seems to have a huge following in his native land of Australia. Thayer doesn’t seem to hold allegiance to any single genre but he almost always guides his tracks back to some raw headbanging electro-style riffs. Check. Check.
