About Midwest Hype
The band began 2013 by hitting Hollywood Way Studios with multi-platinum producer Dave Aron (of Sublime, Death Row, and Prince fame) to record the full-length LP “The Time.” The album sets the dynamic contrast of the band’s mix of intelligent hip-hop and soulful reggae against the driven background of progressive funk, with flourishes of hard rock and jazz. Released to the masses via a headlining show at Chicago’s world-famous Double Door venue on to sold-out crowd, “The Time” is the manifestation of everything the band has evolved into over the past 8 years; a literal reflection of the time we live in, brought to you by a band with no boundaries that knows no borders. By bringing together the vast influences of all seven members, Midwest Hype creates a sonically unique blend of sound and emotion that is the true essence of modern Rock n’ Roll.The Hype encapsulate the true definition of what it means to be Genrefree. With an extremely high-energy live show that never fails to capture the electricity in the air, Midwest Hype is a free-wheeling, dance floor mayhem-inducing force to be reckoned with.
