fabriclive 94: midland (CD, £10.25)label: Fabric
The tale that describes Midland’s rise from avid fan to headlining Room 1 at fabric may seem unreal but is actually a testament to an unequivocal vision and simple hard work. Working in kitchens to buy DJ equipment, graveyard radio slots, and relentless gigs during university years gradually gave way to a break with Dillinja’s Valve Soundsystem show in the early 2000’s. Including his own solo projects, previous Midland releases include collaborations with Ramadanman, Pariah, and Bicep as well as some solid output on his own imprints, Graded and ReGraded. FABRICLIVE 94 mix is an ode to club culture – it captures a night out, from the moments of familiarisation to new surroundings, to clarity and euphoria, and closing with ambient moments at sunrise.
