Montreál-based Midsplit takes a new approach to ‘Lovely', with cold-hearted vocal manipulation and deep, somber 808s through single.
While Midsplit's usual releases tend to be light-hearted and full to the brim with positivity-evoking sounds, ‘Lovely' with NO-ONE, Jordan Kasedy, and A-SHO is reminiscent of Billie Eilish's dark melodic tones with a robot-glitched chorus. The introduction to the song elicits nostalgiac thought with vinyl-emulating effects over a childish toybox and vocals processed through the other side of a telephone line. A cinematic verse bridges the introduction to an obscure, gloomy and glitched-out drop taking the listener for a late-night cruise with dynamic ups and downs.
Canadian producer Maxence Pepin, known as Midsplit, delivers electro-pop anthems driven by groovy guitar riffs and dreamy melodies. With a growing reputation as one of Canada’s fastest-rising electronic producers, Midsplit began writing and producing music to escape from the realities of his life as a working student in Montreal and decided to focus on crafting unique soundscapes that blended the worlds of alternative-pop and dance music.
At just 21 years old, Midsplit has already received recognition from notable dance outlets such as YourEDM, Earmilk, Run The Trap and Acid Stag, and his music has been featured in top-tier Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday (across 10+ countries), Get Your Hits Together and Hits Don’t Lie. He has also been named as the Face of Verified Pop on Audiomack and was supported on the front page of the outlet’s Electronic #2. Also, the founder of the up-and-coming dance label Hinky, Midsplit can be found hard at work in the studio, creating your next summer anthem with a unique electronic twist.
