Netflix's Midnight Asia features all kinds of music genres in its soundtrack

There’s a lot to take in when watching Netflix’s Midnight Asia: Eat, Dance, Dream. But once the bright lights of Asia’s bustling cities and the even brighter characters have been digested, there are many songs in the series that viewers have taken a liking to.

Music and nightlife go hand in hand, so given that the docu-series takes a look at some of Asia’s megacities after dark, it makes sense that many musicians and songs would feature in the show. Bands to battle rappers and 86 year old DJ’s appear on the Midnight Asia series, so let’s find out more about the Netflix show’s soundtrack.
