Brooklyn-based band Holy Ghost! are Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser, who formed the band in 2007. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2011 following their steady rise to fame as a blogosphere buzz band with the release of first two singles “Hold On” and “I Will Come Back,” including various remixes for the likes of Moby, Cut Copy, and MGMT. The band’s sophomore effort, Dynamics, is due out on September 10 of this year on DFA Records.
Midnight Magic: An ensemble bonded by the unwavering desire to make you, the listener, and the rhythm become one; the secret love children of Donna Summer and George Clinton serving up an orgasmic feast of funk, disco, electro and soul.
Anchored by alumni of various DFA bands and powered by the enormous vocals of chanteuse Tiffany Roth, Midnight Magic teleported the masses to the dance floor in 2010 with their interstellar 12″ "Beam Me Up" on Permanent Vacation.
Spring 2011 saw their long awaited follow up single "Drop Me A Line" on Permanent Vacation. Mixed by former DFA house engineer and Sticky Disc founder Eric Broucek and featuring remixes by the likes of Juan Maclean and Holy Ghost!, this fiery banger became the anthem of the love-slave revolution on Alpha Centauri.
Their self-released debut LP 'Walking The Midnight Streets' is available now everywhere on the information superbahn and direct from the band athttp://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/midnightmagic.
BLAQUE PANTHER DISCO
Coco Disco from Dijon, France. Heiress to the Dijon mustard dynasty.
Jean-Claude Disco from Châlons-en-Champagne, France. Heir to the Perrier-Jouet dynasty.
Both had wanderlust fantasies of moving to Paris, the city of luster, lights, and love!
Jean-Claude left his family estate driving his two seater 1955 mercedes benz 300sl gullwing coupe with a trunk full of his families finest reserve champagne on a quest to manifest his destiny--to delver his disco-tinged dreams to the world.
There was only one thing missing--his muse for music.
Deciding to explore the many regions of France to discover the missing link before landing at his final destination in Paris he visited the city of Dijon. It was here while driving through the beautiful streets the breathtaking young blonde beauty who could only be known as Coco caught his eye. With her glittering golden afro catching every ray of light, her on foot dancing through the streets. Jean-Claude knew he had found the one.
Immediately, he slowed his roll, ate a mentos, and asked coyly, "excuse me, do you have any Grey Pupon"
At which she replied ever so gently, "why, monsieur, funny you should ask. Why, yes. Yes I do."
As she extended her slender arm and the golden rays of light illuminated her fair skin, he knew, she was the one.
Coco was her name and disco was her game. As any gentlemen would, Jean-Claude offered the wind-swept, blonde beauty a refreshing effervescent afternoon delight. After all, it was 5 o'clock somewhere.
In exchange, a picnic in the park on the most perfect day ever, was agreed upon.
Hours passed, and discussions of artistic expression ensued. Coco began to sing softly in her native tongue and it was at this precise moment that Jean-Claude knew that Coco was the missing element he had sought for so long.
It didn't take long for Jean-Claude to convince Coco to run away with him to form what would become the most regal disco duo Paris would ever know.
And after traveling to Paris, Black Panther Disco was born on the steps of Montmarte.
