Weeks after weeks, I realize that the Funk is truly worldwide. For this edition of the Voyage Funktastique show, I wanted to expose this fact by featuring Midnight Runners, a duo of modern funksters, hailing from Bandung, Indonesia. “Midnight runners consists of two people having two different musical backgrounds, but their common love for the disco and boogie sounds created a common ground between them and created a distinct character in their sound” I’ve played a lot of their jams on the show, and for this week’s episode, their latest song “Drive Into The Night” gets the official stamp of approval. It’s a very laid-back joint, smooth, soothing, and galactically transcending.
Midnight Runners have an EP coming out really soon, the Odyssey EP, and have previously release another EP on Darker Than Wax in 2012 (Link) Be sure to check out their Soundcloud for more material.
