Rush Midnight Self-titled Album Release
Rush Midnight is the alter ego and solo project of Twin Shadow bassist Russell Manning. Born and bred in Brooklyn, Manning has fashioned himself as a wistful Casanova with a John Hughes-type cool. A formally trained jazz musician influenced by 80’s bands such as Change, The Police and Sade, this smooth-music provocateur releases his new self-titled album via Last Gang Records. Dropping chill, emotive, tightly-knit funk with unending grooves and lyrics that unveil genuine intimacy beneath the cool exterior of the sound, Manning has created a seamless and cohesive collection of smooth bass strumming funk tracks that plays like one long, tight, amazing groove. Executive produced by Jesse F. Keeler (MSTRKRFT /Death From Above 1979), Rush Midnight is a perfect album for upscale dance floors, serious lounging and dreamy, late night cruising.
