TiMO ODV Midnight Children EP mixes Techno with retro 80’s influences
TiMO ODV Midnight Children is the latest offering from the multi-platinum selling DJ & Producer.
The 4-track EP is blend of modern-day Techno with retro 80’s influences throughout the project.
TiMO ODV Midnight Children is inspired by those who come alive at night and live life by their own rules.
When South Africa went into a strict lockdown earlier this year, TiMO decided to spend this time by focussing on writing and producing new music.
After a period of 6 months, TiMO had created 15 demos and slowly whittled them down to the 4 tracks that make up ‘Midnight Children’.
The first single from the project, ‘We Don’t Care’, was released on the 30th of October.
The single is an amalgamation of the past, the present and the future.
TiMO takes inspiration from them all mixed with falsetto vocals, pitched vocals and with a choir in the chorus.
The drums are inspired by the 80s with similar processing and the 2020 inspired bass gives the track a sense of nostalgia but with a futuristic twist.
“Midnight Children is an EP for the misfits who only fit in on the dancefloor. It’s for the individuals who come alive at night and don’t care about what anyone else thinks. It’s for the midnight children.”
