Video Premiere: XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster "Night Time is Coming"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The San Francisco-based Voltiare imprint will drop a new four-track compilation of "modern funk" tomorrow, with the synth-laced "Night Time Is Coming" from Los Angeles cohorts XL Middleton and Eddy Funkster serving as the collection's opening track. The tune's accompanying video makes clear the vibe the pair of SoCal producers are after, as it begins with them digging through crates and laying into some keyboards before transitioning to a more feel-good update on the kind of parties featured in classic West Coast hip-hop videos. Voltaire's Private Function 12" compilation drops tomorrow with more cuts from K-Maxx, Night School, and Loose Shus.
