[Release] Kids At Midnight’s ‘Unashamed’ & ‘Vapours’

 

02 Kids At Midnight - Unashamed-Vapours (Single) - Cover

Here it is! The long awaited return of the finest name in Australian Deep ElectroPop; Kids At Midnight.

A singer/songwriter/producer whose reputation precedes her, Jane Elizabeth Hanley, A.K.A. Kids At Midnight, released her début EP, Let You Slide (back in 2012 via Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music label) to critical acclaim whilst simultaneously becoming the Nu-Disco scene’s voice-in-demand; featuring on Edwin Van Cleef’s massive cover of Phoenix’s Lisztomania and Ride The Universe’s A Little Better amongst many others.

Now Kids At Midnight is poised to unleash a brand new double A-side single. Two lush, emotive and rich tracks that blur the boundaries between Deep House, ElectroPop, Nu-Disco, and Indie-Electro. Unashamed and Vapours. If you like your dance music song based, epic and passionate then this release will be unmissable.

A selection of reMixes tune the tracks for every dancefloor with Holmes Price bringing a retro Boogie to Unashamed whilst So Serious (the Deep House alter ego of Phunktastike) give the track an enigmatic groove. Vapours is given a spacey Tropical Tech House workout by Daniel Högberg of Pacific! and a beach party Disco send off by LA’s Dreamwave originator Touch Tone.

Hey readers. A couple of weeks ago my father passed away, you may have seen a lull in posts. When all was done and dusted I felt the need to do something, both to commemorate my Dad and to give a little to an organization that helps both sufferers and carers, especially at a time like Christmas. So X-Mas Rumors was born. Four artists from the label kindly gave me their time and talent (and hopefully had a little fun) cover four beloved Christmas tunes.

Soundtrack your Christmas party, and do a little good in the process, with this new EP loaded with electronic cover versions of classic Christmas songs. Four of electronic rumors’ finest artists have generously devoted their time to covering their favourite Christmas songs for X-Mas Rumors, and EP whose entire earnings with be going to the Alzheimer’s Society.

electronic rumors newcomer (and Vulture Music veteran) Kids At Midnight work some kind of silky magic on Wham!’s Last Christmas, while the 60’s classic Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love gets an energetic retro ElectroPop re-envisioning by SynthWaver Let Em Riot. New York ElectroPoppers She’s The Queen deliver their upbeat take on Stevie Wonder’s classic What Christmas Means To Me and the EP plays out with electronic experimentalist beaumont intricate take on Little Drummer Boy.

The EP is being released with a ‘pay what you want’ price mark, with 100% of the revenue going to the Alzheimer’s Society we’re hoping people are full of Christmas cheer and give generously.

You may recall, at the start of the month we let you know about a great new compilation from a great new record label. Nude Disco is now one of London’s top club nights, a production outfit AND a record label and to kick off their label venture they self-released the Nude Disco Selections Vol. 1 compilation album. That Nude Disco & Friends record is now getting a general release with the Beatport edition coming with three exclusive tracks, the most exciting coming from Kill Me Softly, a collaboration between Nude Disco’s Vern, Dirty Vegas’ Paul Harris and our very own Jane Elizabeth Hanley from Kids At Midnight.

[MP3] Kids At Midnight’s ‘Habits’

Kids At Midnight

Some deep sounds now from Jane Elizabeth Hanley’s Kids At Midnight project. Since their Let You Slide EP on Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music, Kids At Midnight’s releases have, more and more, been exploring a more moddy, emotional, end of the ElectroPop spectrum, taking in influences from Deep House and Warehouse vibes. This new track, Habits, is the epitome of that sound.

Achingly beautiful, Habits is an intoxicating swirl of night-time sounds. Smokey and dreamlike, the track melds a House beat with ominous tones and a haunting piano line which provide an insomniac backing for Jane’s ethereal diva vocals that phase in and out of the track like whispers on the wind. An alluring soundtrack to those who just can’t sleep.

[MP3] Kids At Midnight reMixes Touch Tone

Kids At Midnight

It was back in March that Awesome Australian ElectroPop outfit Kids At Midnight released their long awaited début single via Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music. Since then, things in camp KaM have, at times, been a little up-in-the-air leaving Kids At Midnight essentially Jane Elizabeth Hanley’s solo project. Having weathered the storm Jane is now gearing up to come back fighting (after a brief diversion supplying the massive vocals for this little number) with some amazing new music, beginning with this reMix of LA Dreamwaver Touch Tone’s second single, Make Believe.

Jane decidedly proves she can easily handle the Kids At Midnight moniker solo as she delivers a Housed-up monster of a track. Equal parts laid back Nu-Disco and early 90’s House, the Kids At Midnight reMix offers up some superb piano hooks set against a backdrop of 909s driving basslines. All this Housey craziness actually works really well with Alex from LexiconDon’s vocal, allowing it to take on a slightly different mood than in the original, it almost feels like there is more optimism in his voice when set to such a jump-up backing. We’re hoping this is the first of many new Kids At Midnight track, soon-ish.
