One of Limited Addiction’s favorite producers just did a little exclusive mix for URB mag. With tracks from Cosmin TRG, Levon Vincent, Nicholas Jaar, SDC, Villalobos and of course Midland himself… bonus points for including Photek’s Glamorama! Such a classic… check it here
You know Limited Addiction has a thing for Midland. His Fact mix has been a favorite for quite a bit now and the man has received lots of love for his output the last few months. Music blog You Can Call Me Pelski sat down with the man for a little Q&A and was so kind to post his re-edit of Caribou’s Sun (featured on Caribou’s Swim, another great album and LA favorite!). Anyway, go read it for yourself here and don’t forget to check the rest of his stuff!
Just blogged about up-and-coming producer Midland the other day and now the ever-amazing Fact features the man with a guest mix to boot! Remember where you read it first, hahaha.
Blending choice cuts from the likes of Ramadanman, Boards Of Canada, Kerri Chandler, Caribou, Massive Attack and a bit of Al Green can’t be wrong.
Anyway here it is: http://mp3.factmagazine.co.uk/FACT%20Mix%20185%20-%20Midland%20(Sep%20’10).mp3
His Play The Game tune has been a Limited Addiction summer anthem, on constant rotation, the perfect tune to end your set with (I’m thinking beach, sunrise, the works…). He’s only two releases deep into his career, one of which was a collab with fellow Leeds native Ramadanman on Aus Music but I’m sure there will be a lot more to follow. Couldn’t wait to hear more from the man and now I found a mix he did for Radio 1 back in May. Enjoy!
From Warm Music Management: “Raised on a healthy diet of classical and electronic music by his family Midland first found solace in the arms of the faster world of drum and bass. After a summer spent wandering across Spain on foot he came back and began experimenting at much slower tempos. This experimentation soon became his occupation as he settled into the groove anywhere between 110-135bpm. The wide range of his influences can be heard in his first release with Ramadanman, Your Words Matter b/w More Than You Know on Aus Music. The release showed the variation of the two’s influences and the recently released Play The Game EP on Phonica has only further exhibited his desire to incorporate different styles into his music, a freedom that has been accepted with open arms by the current resurgence of cross pollination taking place within dance music. His recent guest mix on Radio 1 and support from DJ’s across the board such as Laurent Garnier, Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbes, Ellen Allien and Tiefschwarz further highlights this. With remixes and original material forthcoming on This Is Music, Werk Discs, Ninja Tune and Aus, you’re sure to be hearing much more of him.”
