Midnight Hearts is the first single to be taken from autoKratz third studio album 'LUNA'. Set for release in early 2014, LUNA is the follow up to 2011's Self Help For Beginners, for which Q Magazine proclaimed that "superclub dance floors are safe in this London duo's hands; 4/5."
Midnight Hearts sees the band return to their signature songwriting style; compulsive vocal hooks and contemporary electronics weave together and call upon the lineage of Manchester's fine electronic history. It follows a string of successful club releases on their Bad Life label under their techno moniker, which notched up a raft of 'single of the month' accolades in DJ Mag & Mixmag and made their way into the record bags of the worlds biggest DJ's. The band's split personality meant that they were always bound to return to their love of songwriting and the album format. Midnight Hearts heralds that return, a track as addictive as it is full of charm; a fists-in-the-air moment of electronic pop perfection which points to the promise of the new album.
autoKratz exploded out of the French electro scene back in 2008 with the mini album album 'Down and Out In Paris & London' and their 2009 debut full length Animal, both released on iconic Parisian label Kitsune. Having toured every corner world off the back of these records, 2011 saw autoKratz return to London and set up Bad Life, a record label which has since launched the career's of Petite Noir, Qtier, Fe & Attaque. The label has built a reputation for championing quality, forward thinking artists without boundaries, and has been described by DJ Mag as 'one of the best new labels in electronic Music'.
