Boomkat Product Review:
One to watch, Midland, drops his 2nd solo single, backed with an unconventional Radio Slave remix. 'Bring Joy' is purely indicative of the Midland sound, further loosening the strictures that separate House, Garage and Techno to create a very 2011-ready sound binding elegant Tech-House builds with crisp 2-step swing. 'Dead Eyes' looks more to classic, mid-'90s US garage, where linear, propulsive Tech-House patterns are offset with relaxed subbass for firm dancefloor guidance. Strangely enough for a Radio Slave mix, his version of 'Bring Joy' dispenses with the kicks to tease out 12 minutes of spaciously minimal techno grooving around that warm subbass groove.
