Following the wonderful "Different Us" EP on our label, Russian artist Stendahl joins forces with fellow Russian singer and producer Jama on the two-track EP "Follow Me," featuring two inspired chillout and downtempo cuts.
The title cut, "Follow Me," begins with soothing and memorable notes, which are later accompanied by a calm breakbeat and Jama's stunning vocals. Numerous exciting elements emerge as the track progresses, namely subtle arpeggios and lush pad layers. "Angel" takes off with an array of brilliant piano notes, which are only enhanced and built upon as the song progresses. Well-crafted percussion elements and Jama's vocal put additional texture atop the already captivating atmosphere.
So many sunny, feel good vibes, no wonder this album is cited as a pillar of the synthwave genre. Even today, this stands out from the crowd with all it's catchy and well crafted heart and soul. Hard to pick a favorite but...... John Ponton, III
Night Drive by Timecop1983 was one of the first synthwave album I ever heard. At that time, I didn't know that it would become one of my favored synthpop albums of all time. I like the alternation between vocal and instrumental tracks. It gives you time to breath and prepares you for the next one. Of all the vocalists taking part in this project, I do have to admit in only knowing The Midnight, but all the other signers sound like they would be a blast to listen to in my spare time.

And last but not least Days of Thunder, this is an amazing first album for The Midnight it truely shows that they'd continue to be. This is one amazing album and I enjoyed listening to it for the first time by the cassette I had brought from The Midnight store. I cannot wait to see what is released next and see what tracks I end up loving :) DJ Fazbear
