Miadis is a smoothie:
Roy G and The Biv – Runnin’ (Miadis Remix)
Have you ever contemplated life….
Ladies, would you like to join me, ass cheeks bare to the elements, while we sip green tea…..
…..in a breakfast nook?
Baby, stop running, Miadis is here to deliver some signature smooth.
To call Dallas-based Miadis smooth is an understatement. To call him a Chef of Nostalgic, Dancey Tunes would be more on the level. The man’s a true composer.
No, really, he’s a composer IRL.
And he’s been busy.
Miadis (aka Nick Seeley) is no stranger to chef-ing tasty music: Playing piano and toying with sequencing keyboards since he was a kid, Nick has been producing for local artists and friends since high school. The former student of Berklee picked up a love for French Electro in college, and left school in 2003 to do something more real: Produce the debut record for British band Pitty Sing.
Add to that a repertoire of writing songs that you’ve probably heard (he’s composed for TV), a real day job, a wife and his indie music, and we won’t have to touch on the fact the guy has skill. Certifiable.
Daft Punk – The Grid (Miadis Remix)
But we’re not here to talk about portfolios or insane life achievements at an early age.
We’re here to talk about being smooth, like Miadis
In a bid to form and nurture a musical community in Dallas, Nick’s Miadis persona was born. Featuring all the bells and whistles of French Electro mixed-in with a focus on the most natural, well-controlled and original compositions, Miadis said hello to the scene by remixing songs we knew–and he made them his own.
A lot of remix DJ’s tend to just give a song a slightly new flavor by overlaying some “funky” new beat and chopping & moving around progressions, Miadis doesn’t. He compliments the artist’s original intent while bringing something completely new to the table. At Sweetest Drip, we call this 20+ extra doses of smooth.
Muted but powerful build-ups, smart, funky keyboard solos and a platter of interesting approaches delivers something approachable, nostalgic and highly dance-able. It’s similar to French electro, but it also seems to have more soul.
Hooray For Earth – Surrounded by Your Friends (Miadis Remix)
Did you ever decide that one day you’d hip-thrust your way through the cold and dark winter streets, with a 40oz in-tow, while looking for some of that sweetest bounce?
Did you ever burst through a door, into a warm crowded room ringing with noise, and as your numb face warmed, feel a hope gathering in you, refining and reassuring you that yes, you’re surrounded by your friends?
After this song you will.
And you can thank Miadis for that.
