A true pioneer of Mexico’s electronic scene, Alex Midi has gone the distance in broadening his appeal beyond his native region with a style suited for global audiences. The veteran DJ has been mentored by legends from David Morales to Frankie Knuckles, and has a long history of holding residencies at some of the world’s most prestigious nightclubs.
His recent single “In The Air Tonight,” a contagious club record influenced by the icon Phil Collins record, amassed millions of streams worldwide and became a dance radio staple in New Zealand, France, Africa, and the US, where it climbed the top 25.
Now, just in time for summer, Alex Midi delivers again, this time with “Magic” featuring Elle Vee. The production plays into the feel-good nature of stateside summertime and is suited from start to finish with an internationally recognizable club-readiness. “Magic” brings house music to its most joyous state, and the vocal chops of Elle Vee completes the record’s ambience.
In tandem to the original record, Alex Midi is offering up an alternative version; the official future bass edit which pulls listeners into a space with darker, bouncier elements. Both versions of “Magic” are out now on August 12 via Aftercluv DanceLab, with music videos to follow later this month.
