A 2 and a half hour Live DJ set from General Midi from way back in 2005. Although Mr Midi starts off a bit rusty with the mixes he soon warms to the decks to take you on a journey and a half.
General Midi, or Paul Crossman, who also performed under the name Fluid, came out of the Bristol club scene, making a splash when he became resident DJ at the Shimmy Club in 1994. His mix of breakbeat with nu-skool, electronica, house, and hip-hop made him a popular act.
General Midi’s singles have been released on some of the most respected breaks labels of the time, including TCR (Rennie Pilgrims label) & Kilowatt (Hyper’s label). In 1999 he released his single “The Westerner,” followed two years later by “Daft Funk,” the same year that his first full-length release, Genetically Modified. All of this has led to his debut artist album ‘Midi Style’ which was released on Distinct’ive Records in 2005. In 2009 he released his follow up album ‘Operation Overdrive’.
Paul Crossman also worked with writing partner and audio engineer Al Watson in the duo act called “Starecase”.
Currently Paul Crossman works as as a Teacher of Computing at Lampton School, London UK.
