Midxnite, whose real name is Yusuf Salim, grew up in a South Asian family.
The Phoenix-based artist credits singing traditional melodies with his family as his introduction to music and says it provided him an easier transition to contemporary R&B and Hip Hop.
In his latest single, ‘Emotionless’, you will actually witness the sensitivities and emotions of a man finally opening up and admitting his flaws, errors and need for the love of his partner. Many men suffer every day with the stereotypes and societal pressures of appearing as a ‘strong man’ on the outside. In this era of mental health awareness it delivers a poignant message.
