Silk Music is honored to present an inspired new remix of The Midnight's "Shadows," courtesy of French virtuoso Uppermost. A household name amongst the indie-electronic set, due in part to several extraordinary artist albums over the past decade, Uppermost is an especially thrilling addition to our artist roster. Not unlike The Midnight, Uppermost was heavily influenced by the cult film "Drive," and his recent "Given by Nature" artist album -- a veritable masterpiece -- combines retro-laced electronic motifs with modern production techniques, to emotive and exhilarating effect.

The first of several 'remixed' singles ahead of our forthcoming "The Midnight Remixed 02" album release, Uppermost's remix of "Shadows" is a slow-burner that not only showcases The Midnight's evocative songwriting and (often) noir-tinged aural aesthetic, but also Uppermost's equally cinematic musical stylings. A dramatic, beat-less intro shines a spotlight on Tyler Lyle's gripping first verse; at the quarter turn, powerful, reverb-heavy drums begin to propel the arrangement forward, soon followed by an Uppermost signature: an entrancing series of pitched vocal effects, which conspire to create one of the song's most memorable hooks. The arrangement's patient crescendo reveals the second verse of "Shadows," later joined by the soaring, unforgettable refrain, "Shadows in the city / I'm a stranger to myself / On these streets I'm someone else." Following this climactic sequence, Uppermost treats the listener to his ornate orchestration one last time, as the arrangement features a dazzling coda, replete with the French maestro's mesmerizing, robot-on-acid vocal effects.
