7" Disco Funk Makers Midnight Drive Reissue


Don't Challenge Me

You're Shy

Repressed - Brian Not Brian's Midnight Drive dropped this 7" reissue in 2018 and went quickly.

Makers was the moniker for another studio project by legendary euro-disco pioneer Boris Midney. Midney, a Russian ex-pat, explored his own sonic world and in the process crafted some of the biggest records during the most fertile times in the disco period, he created numerous projects including Beautiful Bend, USA-European Connection, Caress and many more.

"A classically trained musician and jazz artist, his trail-blazing studio work meant he was one of the first producers to embrace the capabilities of multi-track mixing in a most creative way. Listening to this 45, a limited release on his own 'Midney' micro label, you can certainly hear genius at work, it's mind boggling that this record was crafted when it was (1972) as it sounds totally ahead of it's time and sounds exciting and original to this day. Truly one of the scarcest records of its kind we were extremely humbled to be able to work with Boris and his organisation on this very special reissue that has been a collaborative effort all the way. This reissue has been repressed from Boris' own masters and every care has been taken to ensure that this lo-fi oddity sounds as good and clear as possible and the label artwork is a close rendering to the original " This is the very first time this record has ever been reissued (it was included on the most incredible 'Personal Space' compilation from a few years ago) and people will be very surprised to hear the b-side for the very first time - 'You're Shy' - A sweet soul number that almost recalls The Staple Singers and could easily have been released on Stax.
