custom typeface by Reid Miles?

I'm looking to find this typeface. Sample is attached, since it was displaying properly inline.

It was certainly handset by the ever matchless Reid Miles, but it must have been created from some standard face of the time, right? I was looking at Akzidenz Grotesk (in some sort of condensed weight) as an alternate but it's not quite right. Looking to "borrow" this design for a poster promoting a one-time DJ night I'm doing spinning all jazz wax.

Thanks all!

For future reference you can post ID requests on the main Type ID Board:

No need to re-post this particular ID. It will be moved for you.

Not a match, but it's very close to Chalet Comprime (HongKong 80) by House Industries (maybe a bit compressed?)

I found it using Find my Font -

Have a look at some of the Knockout series of fonts from Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Those might also work.
