Midnight Specialists - The All Nighter

The All Nighter, is nothing but classical NYC hip hop. Known as Midnight Specialists, they come with an original sound, dark in nature, but still very musical, The All Nighter, gives me hope that NYC still has it.

The Midnight Specialists consist of MC extraordinaire, the Master, and beat-smith taeOne. Their debut albumThe All Nighter, is a brooding and cautionary tale of modern urban life in New York City. The Master provides personal insights and lyrical dexterity rarely seen in todays hip hop. taeOne’s soundscapes range from classic east coast boom bap to drum and bass. The combination results in a display of a plethora of styles that manifests itself in the form of a struggle between cynical disdain and undying faith, dripping with chest-vibrating bass and wielding an edge of paranoia. Their style is rooted in the classic New York rap sound, with Boot Camp Click and Organized Konfusion being central influences.


They begin the album with a scary and off putting rant from comedic legend George Carlin recorded shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This sense of dread is a central element of the album and provides the Midnight Specialists with the fury needed to make a classic New York City hip hop album.

I'm going to download that now...they sound like a darker, angrier version of Blue Scholars. I can't wait to hear it!
