We’ve all been there. Great DJ, great crowd, party ready to go off. . .until the shit sound system sucks the energy out of the room. The quality of the sound system can make or break a party, and truly great sound systems at places like Paradise Garage, Twilo and The End become things of legend themselves.
Nobody cares more about sound than the DJs, which is why Dimensions Festival sat down with three artists, Carl Craig, Midland and Mala, who are known for making and playing music that requires pristine sound to get the full effect of the tracks. Needless to say, if you’re heading to the three-day event, Sept 6-9 in Croatia, you better pack some high-quality ear protection.

There’s few things more satisfying to a lifelong electronic music fan than hearing various eras come together so fluidly. “Frozen Flower” is the new release by Scottish producer Sei A. The cut weaves together the skittish highs and dusty lows of contemporary post-dubstep, which the vocals evoke the soul of vintage UK trip-hop. The tune comes out on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, and features remixes by Midland and Youandewan.
It’s not too often that shooting stars come across the radar of URB; luckily we get to hear one this time around. Harry Agius, also known as Midland, is a producer that blends together all things house and techno and let’s the music decide its own identity. Being played by techno, house, funky and dubstep DJs, the sounds of Midland are deep, dystopic and demonstrative of all things dance. In this exclusive interview, Midland spoke about his origins, his opinion on the current DJ climate he’s thrusted in and his upcoming future. He also gave us one of the best mixes we have featured on this website. Top-notch from start to finish…check it out after the jump.
