The new EP from Smoke Screen. Completely produced and written by Smoke Screen, this may be the Cleveland duo's most consistent effort yet. Keeping the something-for-everyone vibe, the focus is heavy on analog synths and heavy drum breaks. Featuring the lead single "Ice Cold Water" and guest appearances by Urbindex, Rio The Mechanic and Phenom.
*Nominated in the 2012 Ohio Hip Hop Awards for Album Of The Year
"Smoke Screen finally dropps its Ice Cold Water EP, and it’s a really solid effort. Fast flows, weird hooks, and some pretty decent beats, too."
-Anthony Fantano (The Needle Drop)
"In fact, the album flows, quite literally, like a cool stream. From the backstreet wild style of the introduction to the extraterrestrial essence of the the ending and even on the call-and-response group vocal for the hooks, Smoke Screen knows how to curate a 20-minute that vibes perfectly and feels oh so good."
-Femdog (Dead End Hip Hop)
"The Ice Cold Water EP is the duo’s most cohesive project to date, with Chemist and Mooke blending booming drum breaks with nocturnal synth sounds; keeping their scene-setting double-time raps coming at a non-stop pace."
-Ghost Noises (Headnodz)
