> > > ZLEEP 008 : SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER//MIDLAND
Wow, I think our last event probably surpassed even our expectations.. Massive thanks to Seth, SBTRKT and Matt Lone and of course all those that came down. A sell out it was so if you were a bit slow in getting a ticket please don't make the same mistake twice!
For this our 8th event we welcome some staggeringly talent chaps from Leeds and Belfast.

SPACE DIMENSION CONTROLLER (R&S Records/Clone/Kinnego)
Space Dimension Controller is still relatively new to the scene, but in the last year or so has been responsible for some of the most jaw-dropping pieces of music we've ever had the pleasure of hearing. With a dedicated affinity towards dusty old pieces of rare and often forgotten hardware, this man has created an intoxicating blend of detroit techno, p-funk, acid house and disco which can best be described as Galactic Funk. Unsurprisingly, the whole World has actually sat up and taken notice with everyone from Francois K to Josh Wink rinsing a number of blinding releases on labels such as R&S and Rush Hour and everybody else with the right mind flocking to catch this star-in-the-making before he jumps back in his space pod and leaves Earthly confines for new galactic pastures. I think you can tell we're BIG fans and delighted to have him for his Nottingham debut.
MIDLAND (Aus Music/Phonica)
In a little under a year this young Leeds-based producer has rapidly risen from aspiring bedroom producer to become a leading light in UK electronic music, and along with fellow visionaries Ramadanman (his housemate), Joy Orbison and a few others has literally gotten up and shaken the UK techno and bass scenes by the scruff of the neck. The outcome has been a cross-pollination of sounds and ideas that has resulted in the current UK house/techno scene being perhaps as exciting as its been certainly in our memories and the undeniable envy of the rest of the World. Yes it's something we should be proud of!
Whether through his now legendary FACT mix (http://www.mixcloud.com/FACTMixArchive/fact-mix-185-midland/) or through his excellent joint release with Ramadanman on Aus and more recently his 'Bring Joy' EP on More Music, it's clear there is some serious talent revealing itself which leaves you pondering the limits to this guy's potential, because it's patently clear that he's going to be a huge influence for producers and DJ's alike over the coming years.
DEATH ON THE BALCONY (Airdrop/Magicbag)
Also from Leeds, messers Mark Caramelli and Paul Hargreaves have been carving a niche for themselves with their unique fusing of disco, house and deep techno and causing quite a stir in the process. Catching the ears of Boston-based house superstars 'Soul Clap' no less resulted in them doing a remix for a release on their very own, Magic Bag label. With support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Bros Vibe and Mary Anne Hobbs its clear these guys are on to something really good.
