Boys Noize is back with more industrial mischief, this time on a cover of Adamski’s late 80’s acid classic “Killer,” arriving on his own Boysnoize Records. For the rework, the producer taps Miami-based singer Steven A. Clark for vocal duties, which were famously handled by Seal on the original. The result is a nostalgic stomper of a track, with Clark’s vocals dripping attitude and swagger the whole the way through. The song’s rebooted debut comes in the form of a psychedelic music video that beckons straight back to smokey New York club nights of decades past.
Boys Noize is on record saying the cover is a love letter of sorts to that era, and that specific track in general. This version has the Mayday artist’s fingerprints all over it, but the feel is still geared towards tributing the original cut all the way. Boys Noize explained the backstory for the cover’s personal significance, and the origins of its creation via social media,
“Being a 90’s kid, I kind of grew up with this song which later became one of these tunes I’d play out at the end of the night. When I met Steven and heard his voice for the first time I immediately thought of that track and the idea of doing a cover version was born. It was initially just for fun, but it turned banging and lit the dancefloors wherever I’d drop it – so here I am sharing my industrial ‘KILLER.’”
