Guy Gerber ClashMusic Mix “After releasing on labels such as John Digweed’s Bedrock and Sven Väth’s Cocoon, tech-house wizard Gerber started his own label, Supplement Facts, in 2007, which proved the perfect home for his leftfield, considered take on melodic techno, allowing him to further explore experimental electronic leanings whilst also retaining a solid dancefloor pulse in his distinctive tracks. Gerber’s Clash mix is a refined affair, full of warm, colourful house, stripped-back techno and some gently euphoric dancefloor sounds, perfect for summer listening. Featured in the mix are techno baron Ben Klock, the [...]

TECH HOUSE RULER Midland started a record label called Graded and by jeepers if he's not tooting his own trumpet all over it. Graded's maiden release: Midland Not a bad signing. He must know someone that knows someone.
Midland drops of a brand new track on he's equally new label, Graded . Set to make a ton of releases this summer, Midland, has decided to release his own music through his brand which is extremely exciting. Midland is known for great dj sets and great productions so it's obvious that Graded will do very well. This new release is great way to start off the new label. Loaded with a supreme deep house sound, check out the new snippet from Midland, Realtime . It's definitely worth it! The post Midland [...]
Leftfield techno producer Midland has decided to break away from Aus , the label he has been so closely tied with, today. According to XLR8R , Graded will focus "on vinyl [releases] with full artwork sleeves, 180-gram pressings, and locked grooves," though a caveat has been included stating all releases will be available digitally. At present, in terms of output the focus appears to be on releasing Midland's own material, though we're assured music from other artists which are deemed to fit the aesthetic of the label will [...]
Great remix EP that just DROPPED from the main man Will Saul, under his other alias Close on K7!. The EP has a killer original and ace mixes from Dusky and Midland. But gotta say I love this one for different reasons, kinda just uses the vocal to full effect... almost like a vibe tool. No Kick... Just a sleazed out waling synths, and stripped out guitar plucks a la the xx with heavy spacey reverb. simple Wibezzzz.
Close - My Way feat. Joe Dukie (Midland Remix) out now on K7 Records with more mixes from Dusky and Tanner Ross & Slow Hands. Get it from Beatport
Midland claims this will be his only remix this year and not a bad one to go for really... He's worked his late night magic on Will Saul from AUS music's new Close project which features the lovely vocals of [...]
Close is the alias of underground pioneer Will Saul, label head to both Simple Records and Aus Music. Released on !K7 Records, "My Way" is hypnotic, dripping with the kind of soulful melody that characterizes Saul's Close project. The Tanner Ross & Slow Hands remix version is a dreamier exploration of the blues-infused original; slowed down and deeply emotive, it showcases Joe Dukie's gorgeous voice in breathtaking fashion. "My Way" is the second single off of Close's debut album Getting Closer , due for release June 11th on !K7. Saul commented on the inception of this evolutionary production, [...]
As we near the beginning of Ibiza's 2013 season, the beloved Pacha brand aims to forge a new identity, starting with Guy Gerber's new The Wisdom Of The Glove residency. The Israeli curator has some major plans for the world-renowned club, so we gave him the floor to answer our most pressing questions about the Glove's mystical allure and his hopes to make Pacha the island's hottest destination: Explain the meaning of "The Wisdom of the Glove" The Wisdom [...]
Close – My Way ft. Joe Dukie It’s funny how things work out sometimes. A few weeks back when I was listening to Will Saul’s Essential Mix, one song in particular stood out from the rest. I checked the tracklist and it turned out to be called ‘My Way’. After a bit of research I figured the song was unreleased because there was no trace of it anywhere. Needless to say I was pretty excited today when I found out that the track had finally seen the light of day. The single is from Will Saul’s forthcoming [...]
Will Saul 's fellow Aus Music cohorts Dusky & Midland get drafted in for remix duties on Beam Me Up's follow up, My Way. Beam Me Up dropped last month featuring remixes from Scuba, George Fitzgerald and Hercules & Love Affair. Although most reviewers plummed for the Fitzgerald remix, personally we'd recommend Hercules analog powered acidic twist. As yet there are no streams for the upcoming remixes, however if you've heard Midlands upcoming release ' Archive 01 / Real Time ' and Dusky's most recent releases ' Nobody Else ' and ' Calling Me ' you [...]

A few weeks back Midland announced the launch of his new label ' Graded ', Real Time is the second track to be taken from the labels debut release. As yet details on the this new project have not been fully revealed, however we can confirm the first release with comprise of Real Time & Archive o1 . Both tracks represent what we believe is Midands true calling, credible dance floor house that is neither throw away or obscure. Like Maya Jane Coles, George Fitzgerald and the like, Harry aka Midland is able to sweetly combine [...]
LWE's 122nd podcast was a timeless journey through various sounds and styles served up by UK producer Midland. Be sure to add it to your collection before it's archived this Friday, April 26th.
With the three songs available to stream on the band's Soundcloud - three original tracks plus a remix - it's possible to attest that Arthur Beatrice 's music is about exposed emotions. Through the boy/girl vocal dynamic on each song, the band shows different vibes, with "Charity" sounding a bit passive-aggresive, "Midland" explosive/assertive, and "Not Without Thinking" feeling like crystal clear catharsis. From that, others have drawn comparisons from The xx to Ellie Goulding , but in my opinion this is just a [...]
Last time Alt-J visited Kansas City, they were simply an opening act at a radio show. They were even missing a member due to illness. But they must have made an impression because when they announced that they'd be back for a headlining gig at the Midland Theater, the April show almost immediately sold out. Now with the full band in attendance, the British indie rockers continued to woo Kansas City with their unique tunes and multi-part harmonies. Tunes like "Breezeblocks," "Fitzpleasure" and more made for a night of memorable music and the guarantee that Alt-J would continue [...]
We were getting our collars hot about low-key producer FTSE back in the day (ie last month), but the vowel-averse beat creator has genuinely surpassed all expectations with ‘CNT HLP MSLF’. It’s a grimy, pummelling off-centre beat that welcomes you into three and a half minutes of constantly changing electronica. Not only does the track collapse to reveal a tender vocal, but at one point FTSE somehow ends up borderline rapping over a rumbling bassline that isn’t millions of miles away from something that The Weeknd would be proud of. Awaiting news of a release expectantly. [...]
The new single from Midlands act Decibels “Ruza” is undeniably sensual, carrying an effortlessly smooth bounce throughout. We want to just slide all over the dance floor with this on full blast. Watch the video below, and see how an elderly man does his best to relive his youth. We’d like to think that this song can make any human, regardless of age, find the inspiration to return to their happy place in life. “Ruza” will be released on April 15th via Tronik Youth and Nein [...]
