When a DJ and producer is as passionate about all forms as music as Midland clearly is, their style can become muddled. In the hands of Junction 2 debutant, Harry Agius, though, diffuse interests and a love for boundary-free creative expression are unified by subtlety, taste and an uncanny knack of marshal together the things he (and the crowds who flock to see him) loves.
It's well known that Midland began his DJ life with drum and bass, although this quickly grew to reflect his position as one of the founding figures in the post-dubstep world of Hessle Audio-style beats while at university in Leeds. Since then he's become recognised as one of the world's best DJs, capable of reconciling that love for warping bass music with beguiling deep house and techno. It's incredibly exciting to see a DJ with no boundaries, but who has the technical skill to traverse what he enjoys with ease.
