Here’s another exclusive from the elusive Midnite collective. In anticipation of King’s Bell–the Virgin Islands-based crew’s first full-length album recorded in Jamaica (at the hallowed Tuff Gong studio) with a Jamaican producer (Andrew “Bassie” Campbell)– they have let off this special I Grade dub of the album’s first single “Mongst I & I” (for which they’ve also just made their first music video ever). Taking the haunting melody into the heart of the echo chamber, the version excursion only enhances the spiritual and trance-inducing qualities that have made Midnite’s live shows the stuff of island legend.
