Midnight Magic

Midnight Magic

Dance/Disco/Electro/Funk (Brooklyn, N.Y.)

Grammer’s Saturday night MPMF dance party gets started full-bore and in style with Midnight Magic, a nine-member collective that connects the dots between P-Funk, ’70 Disco Funk and Chill Wave, forging a groovy new path that is playful enough to grab your attention and engaging enough (with clever arrangements, period-piece horns and theatrical vocals) to keep it. Midnight Magic has found solid support from DJs, clubgoers and remixers with its first two singles, while a five-song digital EP, What the Eyes Can’t See, gives a nice glimpse into the group’s endearingly sassy, artfully crafted and often mesmerizing retro/modern boogie. And it makes me want a stylish, affordable car for some reason. (The EP is available as a free download courtesy of Scion/AV ... oh, now I see.)
