LADY MIDNIGHT

Lady Midnight, she is an experience. She is an ethereal vocalist and performance artist who draws upon her multidisciplinary background in visual art, dance and Afro-indigenous roots to create work that timelessly reflects our collective lives. Lady Midnight is one half of the group Parables of Neptune, a duo with Afrokeys (former keyboardist of Atmosphere) and was named Best Twin Cities Vocalist of 2017 by City Pages.

As Lady Midnight, she has recorded with international touring artists Bon Iver, P.O.S., Brother Ali, as well as performed with internationally acclaimed icons Common, Moby, Andra Day, and Aloe Blacc, among others. Lady Midnight has dedicated her life to using the arts as a power for change and confronting trauma.


ZIYAD

Ziyad makes dancefloor-slanted ambient soundscapes. Blending lush harmonic content with pulverizing drums, mournful melodies with the one-two punch of footwork, and soothing pads with rumbling sub-bass, this producers music is as much for the dancefloor as it is for lying on the floor. Formerly known as noahs heark, Ziyad is a Red Bull Music Academy alumnus, and has released music on Paris based Infiné, Karachi-based Mooshy Moo, as well as his own imprint, Hear Now Records.

“Ziyad’s rhythmic studies weave like beetles through tall grass, sparkle like sunlight on lakes. Ziyad revels in the phases of all matter, their combinations, their uses; creation and destruction are intertwined…” [of debut LP Compost/Regrowth] —Ryan Masteller

Ziyad has received raving reviews from online music publications such as Earmilk, Tiny Mix Tapes, and Wild City and has been featured in radio shows across four continents. Past shows include Le Gâité Lyrique (Paris), Meet d3 (Dubai), Lahore Music Meet (Alhamra, Lahore) as well as venues in Karachi, Berlin, and NYC to name a few. Not to be missed, Ziyad makes his proper Minneapolis debut on August 9th at The Turf Club.
