MIDNITEMEN - FIRST CONTACT
  • Uploaded on
    December 31, 2014

As premiered on Complex, who write:

London-hailing, LA-based Midnitemen have just announced the upcoming release of their new mixtape, First Contact. The tape features nothing but the duo’s covers and reworkings of classics that range from Taylor Swift to Hannah Diamond to Extreme, and everything in between. As the opening track of the tape tell us:

“Somewhere beyond Sirius… Beyond space and time itself… MIDNITEMEN listen intently to the music emitting from the various planets under their eternal observation… those that interest them most are carefully examined and run through ancient PEAKWAVE algorithms. These altered musics they send back as messages, intended to announce their imminent arrival on Earth… and establish…. FIRST CONTACT…”

These “messages” are the remixes they push, creating a sort of  twisted lens filter through which they experience the world, and Midnitemen have always prided themselves on their ability to spot a hit, or an opportunity to send another message. In fact, it was they who remixed both “No Flex Zone” and “Club Going Up On A Tuesday” long before Nicki Minaj or Drake hopped on them.
