Discogs is proud to once again team up with Mobile Mondays! to present a special Live edition of NYC’s premier all-45s weekly DJ showcase! The May 15th, 2017 event downstairs at The Bowery Electric will feature Midnight Magic, as well as another special guest act to be announced soon! Stay tuned to the event page for further details!
Midnight Magic is a cosmic Disco ensemble with a desire to make you, the listener, and the rhythm, become one. Anchored by New York City underground dance music vets Morgan Wiley and W. Andrew Raposo, and powered by vocal temptress Tiffany Roth, the band’s size matches their larger than life sound, ranging anywhere from four to nine people. Their latest full-length, Free From Your Spell on Soul Clap Records, was released in November 2016.
In anticipation of the upcoming special edition of Mobile Mondays!, Tiffany Roth of Midnight Magic gives us a look into her top 10 all-time favorite releases:
This song is perfect to me. I cannot seem to get sick of it. They have soooo many wonderful songs, but this one may be my favorite by them. Highly recommend the accompanying video!
Not much to say about this, but it’s just a good ass dance song!
I’m a shameless horror film and Soundtrack nerd, so I was pretty shocked I hadn’t heard this funky ass theme before!! If the theme song doesn’t make you want to shake that ass, you’ve been lobotomized unbeknownst to you. The movie is also one of my favorite Friday the 13th’s. While you’re at it, check out all the amazing re-presses Waxwork Records are putting out.

Mobile Mondays! is NYC’s premier 45s vinyl night, founded in 2011 by Operator Emz, honoring the 45 RPM record. Its mission is to save the music, preserve DJ culture and bring back the vibe and soul of NYC.
The DJs (Operator Emz, Joey Carvello, Natasha Diggs, Misbehaviour, Money Mike, and Just Blaze) are real curators on the turntables who fold the crowd into their vision of the party. Every week, you will hear the rarest of grooves followed by classic dance floor burners. The DJs are the artistic directors of the party, each with a treasure trove of singles that have special significance to their musical journey. MM! takes listeners back to an era when DJs dug a little deeper and brings NYC’s vinyl rats and music lovers together to celebrate everything from Funk & Soul, Disco, House, Punk Rock, New Wave, Pop, Salsa, Rock & Roll, Reggae, Rhythm & Blues and anything else classic and danceable on 45s and vinyl records. Mobile Mondays! takes place every Monday night at The Bowery Electric.
