General Midi was born a breaks freak, but became hooked on the house sound at an early age. His tracks and remixes are undefinable; are they lush breaks tracks, played by DJs more known for their darker kicks, or experimental house tracks, played by breaks DJs?
General Midi has been heavily involved in promoting nights in the Bristol Music scene since moving to the city in 1991. He got bitten by the dance bug in the early nineties and alongside Leon Alexander formed the legendary Techno night Shimmy in 1994.
Alongside other remixes for Hope, General Midi provided two exclusive tracks for Distinct’ive Breaks’ Y3K Progressive Breaks compilation which features the cream of the breaks scene, remixes for Hooj, Beatz and Bobs and Vinyl Hiss and has tracks out on Kilowatt, thursday Club, Boom Box, Silver Planet’s break imprint (Planet Breakz) and Shadow Records in the USA.
His DJ style draws from influences far and wide. Blending ‘Nu Skool’ breaks with other electronica, and not frightened to combine in the odd West Coast techno Track, he has a unique understanding of the dance floor combined with an immense musical knowledge.
