Dawn of Midi – Nix

Dawn of Midi are a New York trio who could be classified as ‘trance jazz’. Their most recent album Dysnomia (from 2013, made the NME’s Top 50 year-end-list) is a devastatingly hypnotic piece of work and their minimalism works well on stage as well. I love acoustic acts that elevate the music in such stimulating and tasty ways.

Their names are: Quasim Naqvi (drums), Aakaash Israni (bass) and Amino Belyamani (piano).

Oh yes, and the video for Nix is done over a prancercise footage! Well done, it’s a perfect fit!
