Label boss, producer and genre spanning DJ, Midland has been the Renaissance Man of dance music since first cutting tracks with Pearson Sound back in 2010. As a producer he’s proved his worth time and again, as at ease working on sublime techno jams with Bicep as he is dropping percussive Afro-house for Autonomous Africa. But it’s as a DJ that Midland has become most feted. 2016 saw him take home Radio 1’s evergreen accolade Essential Mix of the Year, beating off the competition with a selection that showed just why he is so rated; when a DJ can seamlessly move between King Sunny Ade, Radiohead and Hessle Audio, you know you’re in good hands.
