[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.

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.

Catch is a bright, sparkling, Poppy Nu-Disco track. Prepare yourself for one of those choruses that’ll be stuck in your head for the rest of the week. Thick with a sweet pumping bass and a broad selection of breezy keys, Vern and Paul whip up a top quality DiscoPop track with a comfortable poolside vibe. It’s to this mix that Jane injects a passionate performance. Heartfelt vocals that manage to be both touching and a massive earworm. It may not be summer anymore, but re-capture the vibes with this one.
