We are submerged in a dry swimming pool. A SEGA Mega Drive, Commodore 64, floppy disk drives and hard drives sing in unison. The unusual ensemble (controlled live via MIDI) are given a last curtain call in a nostalgic farewell to forgotten friends.

"I asked Julian Corrie to compose and perform a piece of bespoke music for antiquated hardware that I had turned into instruments then rigged together via MIDI."

Third in Nightshifters’ series of free EPs comes Rx’s wild and bumpy “Bumble” and a suite of varied remixes sure to make you tweak as much as twerk. Hailing from Philly and part of the global bass family known as Subdivision, Rx’s “Bumble” is somewhere between nu-step and chip-tune with a touch of rumble in the trunk. In true Nightshifters form, “Bumble” is an exploration of the strange; defying expectations in his embrace of musical madness. Sure to become a blog favorite, the EP comes with a hilarious video by Bad American that picks up where “the Lawnmower Man” left off and goes where Dire Straights’ “Money for Nothing” feared to tread.
Additionally there is a Santa-sack of massive remixes to round out the release. Nightshifters label head, DJ Donna Summer, delves into the deep end with some chill house organs over bubbly beats. Fellow Subdivision pal Nate Day rips “Bumble” to her bones, adding a somewhat hip-hop vibe; while Seattle up-and-comer, Tony Rocky Horror, raves the fuck out of some wobbles. However it’s newcomer, Nifian, that’s sure to turn heads with his epic dark and arty Dubstep remix. Clocking in over 7 minutes long, it’s a cinematic trip through a twilight landscape.
Nightshifters is built around a core group of musicians making big club tracks to get people dancing! Our sound is hybridized; you can find elements of B’more, Rave, Electro, Dubstep, House, Bassline, and maybe even Drum and Bass in the mix. We’re an open-minded lot who are working hard to make your parties better.
