‘Swim’ by Caribou might just be one of the most beautifully crafted albums I’ve ever heard. It’s pretty much close to perfection. In fact, up until about a week ago, I would have said it was perfection. That was before I heard the Midland remix of ‘Sun’. I think it’s better than the original. Honestly, Midland has managed to improve on perfection. He’s a fucking genius.
The man has been around for a while, most of his early work manifesting itself as high-tempo DnB, but recently he seems to have hit upon the magic formula. Straddling the line somewhere between deep house and future bass (I didn’t even know there was a line there), Midland’s sound seems almost defining, like it could produce an offshoot genre of it’s own. What is for sure is that we’re likely to hear a lot more from him soon, which is definitely a good thing. Trust me.
