Midland與他的老戰友Pearson Sound於2010在Aus Music發行的首張單曲"Your Words Matter’’,可稱得上是bass music元素結合house曲式的經典作品,更被DJ MAG喻為"100首最重要的house歌曲”。

第一波的成功出擊後,Midland在Aus Music,She Works,還有Phonica等廠牌下陸續發行作品之外,還幫其他製作人如2 Bears與Julio Bashmore製作remix歌曲,此後Midland的製作功力也受到各界的肯定,更受到Washed Out、Boards of Canada與Caribou的青睞受邀為其編製混音作品。

從Midland與Joy Orbison、Ben UFO、Marcel Dettmann、Four tet、Will Saul同台的精彩演出中,可以看見Midland多元不受限的音樂風格以及多變的演出方式完美結合,更能感受到這位全才型的音樂人未來的無限可能。

Midland made his 2010 debut alongside longtime friend Pearson Sound with their anthemic track "Your words matter", a track that would go on to be placed in DJ Mag's "100 most important house records" feature. Within the track the pair wove, defied and played with a number of genres and, in doing so, Midland laid a clear foundation stone for his vision of how electronic music could be. It is a sound that is rooted in House and Techno but with the rumbling low end of Dubstep and wide screen experimentation of classic Electronica.

Since then, subsequent releases with Aus Music, She Works and Phonica plus remixes for artists like the 2 Bears and Julio Bashmore have cemented his reputation as a producer whose tastes reach beyond the dancefloor. His deft edits of Washed out, Boards of Canada and Caribou have become firm favourites with many and won over some diehard fans along the way.

As a DJ his sets are unsurprisingly diverse, something witnessed at clubs from Fabric to Plastic People to Space in Ibiza, Panorama Bar in Berlin and Chinese Laundry in Sydney. As a result he is just as likely to be playing seen playing alongside artists such as Joy Orbison and Ben Ufo as he is Marcel Dettman, Four Tet or Will Saul.

With the imminent launch of his new label Graded and the fallout from the release of Trace on Aus Music still being felt in clubs around the world, its safe to say you'll be hearing quite a bit more from him in the future
