Since he first surfaced in 2010, Harry Agius (aka Midland) has been a chameleonic talent: a producer of surreal club cuts as well as modern pop songs; a house DJ always flirting with techno, disco and the sounds of his native UK.
Midland’s production style has nimbly evolved from one record to the next. ‘Your Words Matter’ his collaboration with Pearson Sound (then Ramadanman), set the tone for his long-lasting relationship with Aus Music:– stripped-back, garage-flavored house, which also characterised his 2011 single ‘Bring Joy’ on More Music.
Midland has also worked on plenty of one-off projects over the course of his career, including remixes for artists from Mano Le Tough to Darkstar, ‘Before We Leave’ for Phonica’s white label series, and contributions to JD Twitch of Optimo’s Autonomous Africa label and as part of AKASE with Robbie Redway whose debut album Grasepers.
In 2016 this culminated with his entry for BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix, which went on to earn him Essential Mix of the Year and was described by Pete Tong as ‘a real timeless classic from start to finish’.
