Midland Fact Mix

Midland is going to blow up at the tail end of this year I feel. A friend and collaborator of Ramadanman, there has already been notable success earlier on in the year when the two released Your Words Matters on AUS. Midland himself then released Play the Game on Phonica Records a brilliant four track ep which really bored out his own sound. Originally he started out dj-ing Drum and Bass around Leeds, but after a self imposed i-pod ban during a holiday he came back to concentrate on making slower music.

He makes brilliant house and techno often with a rigid beat accompanied by vocal samples and snippets. Maybe corresponding to living with Ramadanman or just because of a good knowledge and love of music, there is a striking influence on his music from the deeper, more experimental forms of dubstep.

This mix done for Fact Magazine is bursting full of unreleased goodies from the man himself, including beautiful re workings of Boards of Canada and Caribou. All together a fantastic mix of house, techno and downtempo....he is definitely one to watch out for
