Buro 24/7 Singapore Weekly Playlist #70: Midnight Shift

Lily's Rose

Kavan Spruyt and Debbie Chia, the driving force behind the house and techno label Midnight Shift share a playlist from their label's artists and friends

We haven't stopped featuring Eddie Niguel's City to City because Niguel deserves more attention and he was the first to release with us. He's totally underrated as a producer and a DJ. As for Sam (Deetron) and Stuart (Basic Soul Unit), they've been a great influence in our lives.

Pan Pacific by Mr G is absolutely personal to us. This is Colin in his hard funk mode which he specially cooked just for us, a remembrance of the time we spent together and something we will never forget. Richard Smith (also known as L/F/D/M) is a talented man who deserves more than he should now. We want to give a special shout out to him for giving no second thoughts about joining our family with his track Spirit.  

To live in the hearts of those we love is never to die was the very first song that kick started our Techno series. Tapirus (also known as Charlton) has been a dear friend who specially created this moniker just for us. What can we say about Eduardo and Hodge? They never hesitated to complete this EP for us when we told them we love their music. 

Not many people know that this is on a label called Burek, owned by Mislav and Mario who have helmed a collective called Mugic in Singapore. They were the ones who started promoting quality house and techno in Singapore before our inauguration. Subconsciously, they were one of the reasons why Midnight Shift was born. And of course, the artist KiNK (also known as Strahil) is one of the artists whom we booked just based on the quality of his music and we were blessed to have such a great performer. 

We don't him personally and Jamal Moss (his real name) doesn't know it yet but his label has been one of our pillars of influence and indirectly, he is connected to three of our good friends whom we couldn't squeeze in this feature due to track limitation: John Heckle, Mark Forshaw and Giorgio Luceri.

The next Midnight Shift x Technologue happens in Singapore on 23 September at Cato. To RSVP for complimentary entry before 12am, please click here.
