We’re big fans of Brooklyn’s cosmic disco outfit Midnight Magic here at La.Ga.Sta. We have been following them since the release of their gorgeous 2010 debut single “Beam Me Up”, and needless to say, these unstoppable disco funkers have never ceased to amaze us. With a series of quality EPs for labels like Permanent Vacation Let’s Play House and a self-released 2012 debut LP “Walking The Midnight Streets” of pure disco glory already under their belt, Midnight Magic are now getting ready to bring more of their magic to Soul Clap Records. A new five-track EP called “Vicious Love” is on the way, and is said to explore “the darker realms of the group’s disco sensibilities.”

The forthcoming record’s lead single is “Night Flight”, a late-night disco jam with Tiffany Roth’s trademark soulful vocals that finds Midnight Magic at their best. The “Night Flight” single, which comes complete with two fine remixes from Crew Love homies No Regular Play and PillowTalk, is out now. You can stream the whole thing here.

The “Vicious Love”EP will arrive on September 30th via Soul Clap Records.
