5 Indie Artists You Should Hear – MDNGHT

Jordan Lewin, Anthony Gorman, and Will Acton comprise Manchester dance collective MDNGHT. The group fine tunes elements of house, balearic beats and disco to create celestial anthems that glide into the late night ether.

With soaring male falsetto vocals that at times echo American legend Smokey Robinson, the group’s diverse influences range from the classic soul and disco of Chic, the pop-funk of Kool and the Gang, as well as contemporary artists like German house duo, Booka Shade, Dirtybird label boss and producer, Claude VonStroke and Bristolian dancefloor genre masher, Eats Everything.

On stage, MDNGHT performs a live show that has more in common with a club night than a traditional ‘gig’ setting, merging the energy of a live band with the relentless, euphoric excitement of a DJ set. Early live reviews described the bands sound as ‘sophisticated disco inspired house’ with an onstage charisma and energy that, “hits you like a sugar rush”.

But they no run-of-the-mill EDM group. This band has some serious musical chops as evidenced by their amazing cover of Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough.” The track showcases the band’s ability to add soul to electronic music.
