KILLER is MIDNITEMEN's debut single, a Neo West Coast flavoured re-imagining of the 90s dance classic by Adamski & Seal. The duo have spent the past year releasing a slew of critically acclaimed remixes for the likes of Princess Superstar, OK GO, iLoveMakkonen, Rae Sremmurd and Taylor Swift – the later getting their Soundcloud shutdown after passing 100,000 streams –  DJing parties for the likes of Katy Perry, Harry Styles, Channing Tatum, Miley Cyrus and David Hasselhoff, and holding down their packed weekly DJ residency at LA's hottest new night-club slash karaoke joint, The Blind Dragon.
