“Sometimes you just want the night to never end. Everything is perfect – the club, the people, the music. It’s that magical time you remember forever…”
Whether or not you grew up in the 90’s and early 00’s, dancing late into the night with raucous, bumpin’ beats is something we can all appreciate. Whether that’s in a jam-packed club, your living room by yourself – or anywhere in between – it’s a special feeling. And it’s one that German producer, songwriter, and mastermind behind MP Grey, Martin Polle, channels in his newest smash single, “The Night Won’t Be Over.”
Grounded by an exceptionally strong vocal performance from frequent collaborator with MP Grey, LA-based singer Rudiger, “The Night Won’t Be Over” is a bouncy, exciting, and inspiring track that feels as home today as it does in the mention of classic DJ’s such as Fatboy Slim, Paul Oakenfold, and The Chemical Brothers.
The Wurlitzer sample that leads into the song definitely has a retro feel, and that’s wonderful. Still building on that initial punch, though, the rest of the tune just makes you want to do one thing…dance! It’s nearly impossible not to move your whole body, or at the very least tap your feet, along to the first listen of “The Night Won’t Be Over.” By the third listen, though, you’ll find yourself singing along, and probably adding the tune to your personal turn-up playlist.
Critically acclaimed internationally and in the United States, MP Grey’s positive-minded and endearing messages are often told with Rudiger on vocals, as he appears here on “The Night Won’t Be Over.” MP Grey’s debut EP, Merged Time, mixed and mastered by Nicolas Essig and Rob Murray, debuted in 2020.
As MP Grey continues to build his following, songs like “The Night Won’t Be Over” bring him closer and closer to the sorts of notoriety that international DJ’s such as Sasha, John Digweed, and Above and Beyond command stateside. If MP Grey’s live show is anything like this most recent track, there’s no reason that he won’t be headlining just like these acts in the future.
“The night won’t be over, until we break the rules and see the sun…the night won’t be over, until we dance a thousand songs just for fun…we don’t get tired! We never get tired!”
So proclaims “The Night Won’t Be Over,” and truly, it’s a refreshing, exciting anthem of the night scene that brings feelings of rejuvenation and joy, but don’t take our word for it, listen to “The Night Won’t Be Over” here, and experience it for yourself.

Zaii Valdes of Violet Silhouette discusses new album and proud roots in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
The sound of Violet Silhouette is unlike anything else you’re likely to hear. Their music blends rock and electronic with dance—with a great deal of mystery tossed in for good measure. But however it’s classified, their sound is rather unique.
Singer/guitarist/drummer Zaii Valdes is joined in the group by Dan Potvin and Justin Gianoutsos. The group’s latest EP, “FEVERBLUE,” drops October 20. In anticipation of the latest release, Valdes spoke with Alchemical Records about the new record and, in honor of his Cuban extraction, Hispanic Heritage Month—which kicks off September 15.
How did you first get involved in music?
Being of Cuban heritage, music and dance were very much a part of [my] cultural and familial experience. Not to mention, there was a spiritual aspect to it—trance states and such that could be achieved from rhythm and beat.
