Midnight Rhythm: A Chicago Story

German Reissue label, Past Due, recently released their fourth 12" record. This time the label showcases the group Right Direction, a local Chicago funk/disco sensation from the 1970's. The track, "Midnight Rhythm", which was the group's original name, is a funky feel-good classic from the most obscure corners of the Chicago soul scene. The track at the time, never received any label attention, which eventually led to the demise of the group. However, now through the help of Past Due, we are able to enjoy this amazing gem. The 12-inch single also features a few solid re-edits by Underdog Edits' DJ Part Sixx and Simbad (AKA Mowgly).
