In a world of crate diggers, willfully eclectic selectors and micro-scene experts, few DJs and producers maintain the curiosity, bulletproof taste and unique identity of Mehmet Aslan. Born to Turkish immigrant parents and raised in Basel, Switzerland, a childhood absorbing Turkish music was only the beginning of an esoteric trip down a rabbit hole of fascinating, often unusual music, enrapturing dancefloors with his own record collection alongside his own, equally varied productions.
Midland Sparks is an Indian musical outfit headed by Maitreya Rajurkar (One half of TripShot Crew) to showcase the freshest sounds of modern electronica. Treading deep into a multiplicity of genres, Midland Sparks works on a newfangled sound which is contemporary, unorthodox and takes refuge in latter-day bass music. Think lingering bass-lines, sombre beats and sweeping floor-rumbling grooves. An unbridled experiment wholly intended on carving out a niche, it is fraught with assorted influences and evolves at every passing juncture.
