Whethan’s ‘MIDNIGHT’ recruits rising stars in Yeat, Midwxst, Glaive, more

When the clock struck “MIDNIGHT” on Friday (April 29), Chicago-based producer Whethan delivered a compilation album for the ages.

Unexpectedly and undoubtedly stealing the show for underground aficionados this past weekend, Whethan’s new 9-track project MIDNIGHT not only features some of the new wave’s most promising up-and-coming acts, but took his already impressive production skills to another level.

Redefining the digitized era of music in its own right, MIDNIGHT holds a plethora of incoming superstar talent. With Yeat, Midwxst, Matt Ox, Jasiah, KA$HDAMI, Glaive, Slump6s, ericdoa and more all on the record, Whethan mans the helm as the sonic curator for MIDNIGHT’s rage bangers and hyperpop bops alike.

The beauty of MIDNIGHT is the amount of variety within the project. Whethan does a tremendous job of creating beats that allow these stellar musicians to have full creative control in how they go about creating their verses. With artistic freedom at an all-time high, Whethan’s elite production also showcases different sides of his artists’ skillsets that is not only refreshing, but integral to each of their respective soundscapes.

Overall, MIDNIGHT is a riveting depiction of the new wave’s signature sound — the ultimate collision of rap, hyperpop, rage, pop and others. Defining the current state of music, and where the direction that the sound might continue to head, Whethan’s latest offering is a moment in time that listeners need to cherish.
