Manchester-based dance outfit MDNGHT impressed all the right people with their 2013 debut EP Into The Night. They recently unveiled a reworked version of the title track, which now packs an even heavier punch thanks to veteran producer Steve Osborne. To keep the buzz growing while they put the finishing touches on their debut LP (due 2016), the guys deliver a killer cover of Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”

“We’ve always been huge MJ fans,” MDNGHT tell Idolator. “He’s been a big inspiration for us, and helped us shape our sound. Covering a Michael Jackson track is always gonna be tough to pull off, but we knew that Jordan [Lewan] could really nail the vocal.” Why that particular song? “We chose ‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” because it’s without doubt one of the stand-out tracks from our personal favourite MJ album — Off The Wall. We’d been playing around with it in practice and it just felt so good to play.”

“The production on the original record is so on-point, so it was pretty fun trying to recreate it ourselves,” the trio continues. “We went in and pre-recorded some of the elements, like the keys & the strings, and we got our friends Bob and AJ in to play brass with us on the day. We’re really happy with how it turned out. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!” We’re excited to premiere MDNGHT’s cute cover up top. Make sure you also check out their new single below.
