about

The Midnight, consisting of Danish-born (LA-based) producer Tim McEwan and NYC-based singer-songwriter Tyler Lyle, made their triumphant Silk Music debut earlier this year with "WeMoveForward," an electrifying peak-hour anthem. The single has since been championed by the likes of Chicane and Roger Shah. In recent months, the duo have continued to generate tremendous buzz (including hundreds of thousands of streams on YouTube and Spotify) for their latest self-released singles. As fans anxiously await their debut artist album, we have revived their characteristically 80s-inspired classic "Days Of Thunder," featuring a brand new drum & bass remix by Russian legend PROFF.

The Midnight's original version of "Days Of Thunder" kicks off with a start-your-engines sample, hinting at the titular Tom Cruise-helmed feature film. We are soon met by an uptempo groove and Tyler's thrilling vocal, the first of several verses that lyrically feature a playful conceit, regarding the dark side of love. The euphoric, sing-along chorus is punctuated by an equally emotive saxophone riff, which ultimately enjoys an extended solo. The Midnight's neon-tinged instrumentation and inspired vocal performance coalesce in the form of a sonic masterpiece.

Faced with the daunting task of remixing a superlative track, PROFF demonstrates his enviable artistic versatility by tapping his Soultorque alias; the result is another blissful drum & bass rendering. His composition features adrenalin-fueled beats, which are soothingly offset by lush and tranquil pads and other melodic accents. Tyler's emotive vocal soars above PROFF's simultaneously dance-friendly and introspective arrangement.
