1st February 2019
The enigmatic duo, Italoboyz, bring their distinct sound to Crosstown Rebels, and invite Crosstown affiliate Yulia Niko to provide the remix. Marco Donato, one half of Italoboyz, describes the making of the track as being “very spontaneous. I produced this track alone in a very Italoboyz style”. Of the digital only track, 5.05 AM, produced alongside Blind Minded, he explains that they’d “been experimenting with guitars and pedals, and lots of effects and distortions. Big up to Blind Minded for the structure and the idea behind this track, his contribution on this is invaluable”.
The original cut of Midnight Summer Dream is a fourteen minute epic journey through time and space. The track is dark and dreamy with Durant’s tripped out vocals entwined with uplifting, cosmic arpeggios. Yulia Niko develops a deeper bassline on her take- stripped back with a grungier style. 5.05 AM, produced alongside Blind Minded employs an extended intro with cinematic and mysterious sonic twists and turns.
