Sydney’s favourite twins, Cosmo’s Midnight, are maestros of the mix-n-match, purveyors of electronic beats, clad with a solid R’n’B sensibility, with a tasteful touch of the heart of house. Hailing from Sydney’s creative Inner West, the duo have curated a unique and distinctive sound that has earned them critical acclaim from all corners of the globe.
This year has started strong for the twins beginning with the release of their latest dreamy-pop single “History”, which smooth vocals sailed them into topping charts. Following the release the boys signed to American label RCA Records, toured the US, and sold out a national tour. Philadelphian producer Instupendo, reworked the up-beat original into a melancholic heartfelt version.
The twin producers first began to garner attention with high-profile remixes for a list of home-grown and international talents, including Porter Robinson, Anna Lunoe, Snakadaktal, AlunaGeorge, Panama and, most notably, the official rework of Flume’s hit ‘Sleepless’. The overwhelming response to these early remixes led the boys to further hone their blissful, soft-bodied take on dance music with their debut EP Surge. The Sydney natives’ follow-up single ‘The Dofflin’ continued to showcase the twin’s unsurpassed ability to blend soaring synth melodies with an infectious bassline, garnering heavy industry recognition with remixes from Australian powerhouses Ta-Ku and Wave Racer.
In 2015 the boys released ‘Walk With Me’, featuring the vocals of Perth songstress Kučka, which became one of the most shazamed tracks in Australia, and has collectively enjoyed almost 7 million plays across online platforms.
No strangers to the Australian festival circuit, the Sydney producers have made appearances at Splendour In The Grass, Big Day Out, OutsideIn Festival, Field Day and Listen Out. Their eclectic live set has also led support acts for innovative artists like XXYYXX, Cashmere Cat, Tokimonsta and Porter Robinson, as well as supporting Alison Wonderland on select dates on her ‘Warehouse Tour’ around the country.
Fresh from the whirl of festival appearances, Cosmo’s Midnight quickly put the lights back on in the studio, and released their EP ‘Moments’ in late 2015. Featuring the talents of Wave Racer, Lido and Sarah Bonito, the EP saw the duo take the genre hop between low-end house, lushed out beat-work and electronic mystery up a notch.
Leading the helm of a new generation of young Australian producers, Cosmo’s Midnight have become renowned worldwide as the dappled starlight kings of lightheaded and innovative electronic music.
