Midland

Since he first surfaced in 2010, Harry Agius 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. He presents himself with understated flair: his name, Midland, is a dry nod to his time living on Midland road as a student in Leeds (though he grew up in Tanzania and now resides in London), and his MySpace once said his goal was to “create a homogeneous sound that people from different musical persuasions can appreciate.”

What he actually does, though, is far more radical than that. In his productions, his DJ sets and his record labels, Midland’s sound is as unassuming as it is surprising, at once subtle, refined and totally raucous.
