Dark R&B artist midnight returns today with the slick “Archon Reprise”. Hooking up with collaborator yxlr to create the dark R&B ode, the track showcases midnight‘s falsetto over an expansive, shapeshifting bed of electronic beats serving as another stellar offering, Speaking on the release, midnight states:
Hip Hop was my first love. The beats, the cadence, the vibe… All music theory and training takes a backseat when I write music. Letting go of technique while trusting my instinct is crucial and nothing taps into my instinct as clearly as a beat playing in the pocket.
That moment when you inhabit the percussion and your voice exploits the gaps between samples and melodies. It’s a symbiotic relationship between artist and production not easily found. As an artist you’re always searching, sometimes you find it, more often than not it eludes you, and sometimes you’re lucky enough to work with other artists of ylxr’s caliber who help to shoulder ,hat burden.
“Archon Reprise” was found and created with that same sort of instinct.
