La Roux "Uptight Downtown (Midnight Magic Remix)"

Hailing from Brooklyn, Midnight Magic (pictured above) is a five-piece cosmic disco outfit who will join the ranks of the Soul Clap label later this year with its Vicious Love EP. In the meantime, the group has dropped off its remix of "Uptight Downtown," a recent vintage-streaked single from UK synth-pop diva La Roux. True to form, Midnight Magic elects to cool down the vibe on its remix, letting a spacious bed of synths and guitars ride atop a mellow disco beat filled with enough percussion to keep one moving, but by no means in a hurry. Stretching "Uptight Downtown" past the seven-minute mark, the rework oozes lush tones in all directions, helping the production live up to the cosmic aims with which the Brooklyn five-piece has aligned itself.
