Indonesian native, MIDNIGHT RUNNERS, transmits 8 songs from the city of Bandung, where the industrialized creative community and the island's tropical rainforest meet. Known in circles for disco/funk sample based music, MIDNIGHT RUNNERS has transformed the studio with the vintage analog gear that he used to sample, giving the multi-instrumentalist the ability to arrange and preform in the ways of his teachers on record. OPEN LABS is dripping wet with deep grooves built on foundations of live drums and drum machines twisted together to light the fuse on explosive synth arrangements and thick baselines. For dance floors and lifestyles alike, each song is masterfully crafted with a sensibility that uniquely molds industry and nature harmoniously. Interweaving synth and slap bass lines with hard sultry melodics, carrying listeners through the rubble of city life to the mist of the tropics, on a path to where the vantage point enjoys both. Step into the OPEN LABS of MIDNIGHT RUNNERS!
