    Another ultra-fav of mine is their heavily sampled mellow gem "Curious":

  • The promo of Freaks-A-Zoid is the best one for me. Different full vocoder version on this 12 does not appear on the regular 12.

  • This thread motivated me to dig out an amazing DVD and rip it to my computer .. Midnight Star live in Los Angeles. This version of Freak-A-Zoid is probably the most energetic live performance I've ever seen by any band ... simply breathtaking:

  • Reggie Calloway also produced some other bands including The Deele, this track sounds very Midnight Star to me:

  • Good thread, and good to see them get some recognition.

    I really like their sound, I only discovered the 'Planetary Invasion' album a few years ago, and was really amazed at how good it was. It's a strange mix between Electro Funk and Soul but it really works, I love tracks like 'Body snatchers' and 'Planetary Invasion'. I kind of knew 'Freak-a-Zoid' already from years ago but invested in the 'No Parking on the Dance Floor' album which is also full of good tracks.

    I think you could easily drop some of their tracks in a West Coast electro mix, it would fit along side the likes of Egyptian Lover and World Class Wreckin Cru nicely. In fact if you look at the cover of 'Planetary Invasion' makes you wonder if the West Coast electro acts were influenced both musically and style wise by Midnight Star.
