Spencer Wirth-Davis (AKA Big Cats) is a producer, DJ, composer, and musician from Minneapolis, MN. He makes instrumental hip hop that draws from a wide range of musical influences including classical, hip hop and jazz. His work is melancholy, multi-layered and cinematic; a definite stylistic departure from the standard hip hop sound. Drawing from his background as a classically trained musician, his compositions go well beyond the traditional sample-and-drums format of hip hop, creating complex juxtapositions of instruments, rhythms and sonic textures. Before turning to hip hop, Wirth-Davis studied string bass for nine years under the instruction of Chris Brown (St. Paul Chamber Orchestra), Michael Watson (Minnesota Opera), and Chris Bates.
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. [...] 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.
