Meet Midnight Magic: The Nine-Member Act behind “I Found Love EP”.

Midnight Magic is a nine-member band from Brooklyn, New York, heavily influenced by ’70s and early-’80s dance music, including funk bands and post-disco producers. The band consists of Andrew Raposo, Morgan Wiley, and Carter Yatusake, all of whom were members of Hercules & Love Affair, along with vocalist Tiffany Roth, Jason Disu, Andrew Frawley, Max Goldman, Nick Roseboro, and Caito Sanchez. Since their debut in 2010, Midnight Magic has released several singles, EPs, and albums, all of which have received critical acclaim.

“I Found Love” and Midnight Magic’s Musical Evolution.

The EP’s title track, “I Found Love,” was recorded during Midnight Magic’s early period, which produced many of their legendary hits. Despite its quality, the song never received an official release until now, having been heard only by select ears and lucky concert goers. The original version of the track features groovy basslines, funky guitar riffs, and Tiffany Roth’s powerful vocals. Its catchy melody and upbeat tempo are guaranteed to make you want to dance.

The Luminous Remixes: Bringing “I Found Love” to Life.

Perel’s remix is a perfect blend of ’80s synth-pop and modern dance music, with dreamy synths and a catchy chorus. Derrick Carter’s dub remixes add a house touch, emphasizing the track’s rhythm section and adding a touch of acid house to the mix.
