Leeds based DJ & Producer Midland is the 5th in our ‘Electronic Artist of the Week’ series and couldn’t be more appropriate when you consider in a recent interview with Pelski he sites our home town ‘Brighton’ and ‘The Big Beach Boutique 2’ as pivotal moments in his musical genesis.
Midland like a number of new producers that have emerged in the last 8-10 months simply makes electronic music, and what I mean by this is that his sounds, structure and influences are not restricted to any single genre or trend, taking reference from House, Techno, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Electronica and beyond. Combined the Midland sound has a distinct House foundation which is layered with strong percussion, deep sub-bass, and a melodic atmosphere which gives his music a soul beyond the dancefloor. This is not to say his tracks lack Dancefloor punch or energy, but his records are not Peak Time Electro bangers, and the better for it.
Check his Facebook for a show near you and if you live in Brighton UK, you can catch him this weekend at Sneaker Social Club
