Kungs flips OMI’s “Midnight Serenade” into a dance floor ignitor

As the calendar turns from winter to spring, it’s time to turn the page from the big winter jackets and cold weather gear to the sandals, shorts, and t-shirts perfect for sun-soaked days. No artist has done summer-ready music quite like Jamaica’s OMI, whose Caribbean-influenced records have been a resounding success, so much so that he’s enlisted a host of up-and-coming dance music stars for a stellar remix album. One of the highlights off of the ME 4 U remix album is Kungs’ remix of “Midnight Serenade,” and it stands out due to its stunning simplicity.

The original track is a traditional dance pop record with soaring guitar melodies, catchy vocals, and expertly-crafted percussion arrangements, but the immensely talented youngster flips it on its head into a groovy indie-dance anthem bolstered by Erik Hassle’s stand-out croons.
