It feels like Midland can do no wrong in 2019. The UK artist is pretty selective with his gigs these days, so trust us when we say that his Room One appearance alongside Steffi, General Ludd and JAY and Sybil on 27th July is set to rattle our brick foundations and flood each nook and cranny with a new state of euphoria. Below, Midland prepares us with a guide to his ultimate General Ludd tracks. If you need informing, they’re the Glasweigan duo who have recently turned heads with releases on Rubadub, Mister Saturday Night and Huntleys + Palmers. Their tracks are instantly recognisable; bleepy, intense and laced with subtle grooves that come from a far-reaching range of influences from various corners of the globe. Get a feel for their sound below.
General Ludd – Burning Mack [Autonomous Africa]
A total roller. When that shaker pattern comes in 3:30 it just totally goes off.
General Ludd – C [Mister Saturday Night]
This has been my intro tune for time. The drum pattern totally spins people out, and all those mad effects running over the stereo spectrum are just sublime.
General Ludd – Woo Ha [Mister Saturday Night]
A disco banger done with true style. This one never fails to go off.
General Ludd – Run, Don't Play Dead [Rubadub]
I put this one on my FABRICLIVE 94 album. It’s just locked into that perfect groove. I love playing this deep in a set, it feels like you’re being suspended in mid-air.
General Ludd – Melissa [Belters]
Classy techno with that Ludd Swagger and bump.
General Ludd – Sunset Yellow
Pure melt. At the right time this can totally destroy a floor.
General Ludd - Molycorps Mountain Pass [Ten Thousand Yen]
Weird phased out UK funky vibes. Banger.
