Midland [UK]


Midland made his 2010 debut alongside longtime friend Pearson Sound with their anthemic track “Your words matter”. In doing so, Midland laid a clear foundation stone for his vision of how electronic music could be. It is a sound that is rooted in House and Techno but with the rumbling low end of Dubstep and wide screen experimentation of classic Electronica.

Since then, subsequent releases with Aus Music, She Works and Phonica plus remixes for artists like the ‘The Howling’ and Midland’s own side project ‘AKASE’ have cemented his reputation as a producer whose tastes reach beyond the dance floor. His deft edits of Washed out, Boards of Canada and Caribou have become firm favourites with many and won over some diehard fans along the way.

As a DJ his sets are unsurprisingly diverse, something witnessed at clubs from Fabric to Robert Johnson to DC10 in Ibiza, Panorama Bar in Berlin and the recently departed Trouw in Amsterdam. As a result he is just as likely to be playing seen playing alongside artists such as Joy Orbison and Ben Ufo as he is Dixon, Four Tet or Juan Atkins.

In 2013, Midland launched his own imprint ‘Graded’ and in 2015 ‘ReGraded.’ In turn the two imprints have housed some of Midland’s most prominent original productions to date, and with plenty more material on the way Midland is going from strength to strength.
