PRESS RELEASE:

Los Angeles based DJ Production duo MIDNITEMEN release their debut music video KILLER today, a neon space odyssey chronicling their journey from the edges of 5D space “somewhere beyond Sirius” to planet Earth…

The video co-stars comics god Grant Morrison, last seen onscreen in My Chemical Romance’s SING, and Oldboy’s Pom Klementieff. It was co-directed by MIDNITEMEN and Michele Civetta, the auteur behind videos for Lou Reed, Sean Lennon and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. The outfits were created by futuristic fashion genius Ashton Michael.
KILLER is MIDNITEMEN’s debut single, a Neo West Coast flavoured re-imagining of the 90s dance classic by Adamski & Seal. The duo have spent the past year releasing a slew of critically acclaimed remixes for the likes of Princess Superstar, OK GO, iLoveMakkonen, Rae Sremmurd and Taylor Swift – the later getting their Soundcloud shutdown after passing 100,000 streams –  DJing parties for the likes of Katy Perry, Harry Styles, Channing Tatum, Miley Cyrus and David Hasselhoff, and holding down their packed weekly DJ residency at LA’s hottest new night-club slash karaoke joint, The Blind Dragon.
