This new EP is no exception as this time he draws out immersive pads and understated melody over the top of percussive grit, in parts channeling some of that irresistible Autonomous Africa flavour. The release has already garnered support DJs and radio alike with Jamie XX playing out Reflex on both his recent Boiler Room and BBC Radio 1 Guest mix, while another early unveiling of Pitch Drift dropped recently on Benji Bs show.
2014 has been a continuation of what was a very busy and successful 2013 for Midland. Having set up his own imprint, Graded, last year he has gone on to contribute to JD Twitch’s Autonomous Africa project, a yearly charity release which raises money for different African Charities. This has been swiftly followed up by the release of ‘Before We leave’ on Phonica White - the label that fathered his first solo release. And it doesn’t stop there as we welcome Midland back for the ‘Duster EP,’ out on 15th September. The secret to Midland’s success perhaps lies in his ability to keep his listeners guessing with each new release, a new sound palette is presented, always adding more colour to his catalogue.
