Midi Paul is the alter ego of bassist/producer Phil McBride. Expect stuttering drums, spliced up disco samples, wobbly arpeggios and computer funk created on vintage electronic equipment. On stage, the music evolves like a DJ set, but in place of the turntables you get live bass, dirty analogue synths and old school breakbeats.
Having played extensively around Edinburgh and Glasgow, he often has guest artists appearing alongside him. This year’s festival will feature Ben Collard on drums, and Kathryn Ally giving it her all on the vocals. With recent Radio 6 Music support from Vic Galloway, he’s certainly one to watch! And as a Knockengorroch first timer, we cannot wait for him to get us jumping to some dirty beats at the hot stepping Sheiling tent.
