We are proud to present TOM MIDDLETON(cosmos) for his debut at Movida.
Last week some people were lucky enough to see the SWAG man aka Chris Duckenfield in action. This party will be even bigger!!
For those of you that are not hip to Mr. Middleton here's a brief bio:
Tom has recorded under numerous monikers, including Global Communication, the Jedi Knights, Schizophrenia, E621, Mod Wheel, Amba, and Cosmos. Classically trained in the piano and cello, he grew up listening to 80s electro, synth pop, hip-hop, goth rock and later jazz funk, early acid house and Detroit techno.
He became interested in dance music after meeting Richard D. James aka the Aphex Twin in 1989. The friendship led to Middleton co-producing (as Schizophrenia) tracks for Aphex Twin's Analogue Bubblebath EP.
After graduating in graphic design in 1991, Middleton met Mark Pritchard and the pair went on to establish the record imprints Evolution and Universal Language, releasing a number of now highly sought-after EPs under various pseudonyms. Their releases included the ambient cult classic track "Ob-Selon Mi-Nos" (as the Mystique Institute), distinctive for its use of the sounds of a chiming grandfather clock, and two highly fêted ambient house releases as Global Communication, Pentamerous Metamorphosis and 76:14.
As the Jedi Knights, Middleton and Pritchard released their debut New School Science on Universal Language in 1996, which proved to be a turning point in Middleton's career. Featuring playful electro, tech-funk and ambient numbers, it was well received and has been cited as an influence by artists such as the Chemical Brothers, the Prodigy, Daft Punk and the Freestylers.
