Manchester dance collective MDNGHT fine tune elements of house, balearic beats and disco to create celestial anthems that glide into the late night ether. Taking their inspiration from a number of sources: the house revival that acts such as Disclosure and Clean Bandit have made the top trend of the U.K. and now, increasingly, the U.S. as well; the drifty, tropical dance music that’s swept Europe for the past several years; the synths that strobe across dance floors during the, well, midnight hour.
“Breeze,” released in North America on October 13, 2014 via Radikal Records, expands on the band’s nocturnal sound. Flecks of guitar, piano stabs and wall-of-sound background vocals gathering around Jordan Lewin’s breathy falsetto; the lyrics may be about faffing about and going where the breeze blows, but sonically, it’s a gust.
In support of the single’s North American release, Finnish producer Tontario dropped a deep house remix of the feel-good track, perfectly blending a wicked saxophone solo from SaxoKid, to create a remix even smoother than the original record.
