New York-based musicians midnight and ylxr have teamed up once again to rework their smooth and sexy Nocturne EP, released earlier this year on Majestic Casual Records. Somehow, the duo managed to make the three tracks even more steamy.

The three-track release opens with "Promethium Reprise," a reimagined version of "Prometheum." A lo-fi, deep house-inspired beat lays under midnight's seductive vocals before ylxr cleverly tape-stops the tune into a filtered out and slowed version of the original. When it breaks back into the reprise, it might just set off the dance floor.  

Taking a more hip-hop oriented approach, the new version of "Pressure Gradient," "Pressure Reprise" retains the vocals from the original. ylxr's production on this version is more laid back, and perhaps deeper and more emotional. Omitting the experimental and glitched-out sections, "Pressure Reprise" is more vocally driven, and a beautiful, classic love song. 

The reprise of "Archon" takes a similar approach to "Pressure Reprise," abandoning the more club-friendly production of the original for a deeper, more soulful R&B style production. ylxr's beat is dreamy, and the woodwinds perfectly complement midnight's falsetto, providing perhaps the most entrancing song on the release.
