Kristoff Krane is best known for his work as an emcee/frontman alongside Eyedea in Rhymesayer's free-rap-jazz collective, Face Candy (est. 2005). After establishing his roots as a freestyler, Krane branched off to release several solo albums supported via US tours with acts such as Eyedea & Abilities, Buck 65, Sage Francis and a European tour with rapper, Sadistik. Krane has made several appearances at RSE's 'Soundset' (2009, 2010, 2011) and in December 2015, rocked a sold-out crowd at the legendary venue First Avenue during Doomtree's Last Blowout EVER. After ten-years-plus on the independent grind, he has successfully garnered a loyal international cult following that continues to grow. His catalog includes collaborations with luminaries such as Slug of Atmosphere, P.O.S, Illogic & Blockhead, Jean Grae, JT Bates (TGNP) and Michael Lewis (Bon Iver, Happy Apple), to name a few.
"Lady Midnight has developed her chops by playing in wide-ranging groups like the electro-pop trio VANDAAM and the horn-fueled Afro-Cuban band Malamanya. There's never been a better time to take a closer look at this entrancing singer, however, as she emerges as a solo artist. Her new mixtape [8:40] offers an airy mash-up of Beyonce's "Hold Up" and Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Maps," and the scintillating pop single [Wax Line] with beatmaker Afrokeys places her talents squarely in the spotlight. It's hard not to picture Sade lounging on a yacht in the Caribbean, or Lady Midnight herself coolly driving around town with the top down. It's vibey, it's catchy, and yet it's distinct; completely her, and a harbinger of great music to come." —Andrea Swensson, The Curren
