Skank Productions:
Seek Knowledge Before Vengeance,” Midnite’s 4th release since its debut in 1997, is truly another classic from this St. Croix quintet. As was the case with their previous release, “Jubilees Of Zion,” this new masterpiece was recorded in their homeland of St. Croix at their Afrikan Roots Lab studios.- More

Reggae Reviews:
Thanks to what is approaching a Sizzla-like pace of releasing albums over the past couple of years, Midnite has finally released enough material for me to feel comfortable saying that they are my favorite reggae act today. - More

Celebrity Plus:
A new sound is on the horizon. It is Midnite, not the time of day, but the wicked Reggae group out of St. Croix, Virgin Island. A five-member band with a driving reggae sound and lyrics to die for. - More
