Expanding Beyond Genres – Midoca Lands On The Scene

Expanding Beyond Genres – Midoca Lands On The Scene
Tomas Serrano

Over the past two years, Midoca has steadily built a name for himself as one of the most talented up and coming, downtempo electronic producers. As he has grown as an artist, his talents and abilities have now grown from instrumental productions to more vocally driven tracks such as experienced in his recent moody rendition of Nirvana’s “Something In The Way,” and the vocally, heartfelt “I Don’t Want To Leave,”  both of which are accompanied by visual representations. This summer Midoca released two singles on renowned electronic emblem Lowly Palace to solid reviews. With recent collaborations with electronic icon Getter, we can expect to see Midoca’s career to continue to gain increasing momentum. We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Midoca about the release of “Heaven,” where he gets his inspiration, and more.

Be sure to also check out Midoca’s newest single “The Feeling Is Gone.”

How did you come up with the concept behind for your single “Heaven”?
“Heaven” is not a place but a piece of mind to find comfort in. “Heaven” is a period of my life frozen in time for moments of the song which Ireflected back on with distance from something I once thought was divine
How would you describe your sound?
It’s always difficult for me to be on the inside looking out, but I take a lot of vocal influence from alternative/ indie music and combine it with my love of electronic music and ambient synth elements. 
What bands and other artists have most influenced your work? Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I’ve been really inspired by artists like Houses/Dawn Golden, Julien BakerYung Lean, Turnover, Shlohmo, and Alicks. I think that this blendof inspiration has a direct influence on both my sound and lyrics.
What are your goals and aspirations for the end of 2018 and beyond?
For the rest of2018I plan to release more music, including some exciting collaborations. I plan to put outanEP and begin touring by early 2019. Those two landmarks goals are things that I’m currently building up to now. 
What do you do when you’re not making music?
…*thinking silently for 12 minutes*.. as of recently, I love making short movie clips. I’ve been really inspired by the iPhone cinematography scene online,there arepeople making really beautifulhigh-qualityfilms using only their phone. This represents a piece of the future Ilike; tools for creativity being far more accessible than they ever once were and the idea that everyone can create. Also despite my terrible attention span, I’ve been reading a lot lately. I just turned my head to look around my room to seeIhave ~4 books with bookmarks in them, all of which I pick up and read through sporadically when I have a moment to.
