Review Summary: Luxury Elite and Saint Pepsi both have their own take on nightlife, each of them unique, as well as nostalgic to those who have only seen this type of entertainment only in films. Both of them take on a particular life of luxury, so whether it be cruising

I just downloaded this album onto my phone and starting playing it as I walked down the seemingly deserted streets of Center City. I felt mellow as the puffy flakes fell upon my lashes, but as the album progressed, I began to feel invigorated and energized. It turns out that Late Night Delight was the pleasure I needed to indulge in this Tuesday morning.

I listened to the album more than eight times over throughout Tuesday. Whether I was in the dining hall, in class, or just shuffling down the snow-dusted sidewalks, I found that this album was perfect for any time of the day.

The first half of the album is produced by Luxury Elite, an artist that I have been following devoutly for a few months now (Lux’s Twitter feed is a great treat!), as I will be reviewing two more of their tapes within the upcoming write-ups. LND opens with “All Night”, a song that makes you feel that you are just tuning into a radio station in the later hours of the evening. Lux’s tunes give off soulful and chill vibes, and reminds me of the instance in which I took a Lyft in the pitch-dark after seeing Hail, Caesar! and the driver had on some really smooth R&B. It was a lovely way to end that night. Lux’s part of the release sends the listener into a sleek convertible in a high-end district of a city, with the cool wind in your hair and the sounds of the city melding with your radio.

Saint Pepsi’s (Skylar Spence) half of LND, however, gives off a seemingly different atmospheric influence. “Mac Tonight” is upbeat and energetic, embracing a carefree lifestyle. With Saint Pepsi, you are at a party, or a nightclub, jamming to the uplifting and pulsating beats of the heavy bass and cymbals. The album closes out with my favorite track of any album of this genre"“Enjoy Yourself”. Incidentally, I came across this track on Facebook, which became the gateway drug to discovering the genre more in-depth. The link was of a groovy and loveable man with a crescent moon for a head, sitting at the piano atop a cloud and singing his heart out. After skimming the surface of McDonald’s advertising history, I discovered the original television spots and was instantly hooked. Saint Pepsi’s side of the collaboration is jam-packed with positive vibes and the will to have fun.

Luxury Elite and Saint Pepsi both have their own take on nightlife, each of them unique, as well as nostalgic to those who have only seen this type of entertainment only in films. Both of them take on a particular life of luxury, so whether it be cruising around or a party night on the town, both parties condone the right to “enjoy yourself”.
