Ransom Note stalwart Bawrut presents a new sound in his debut album In the Middle, a striking eleven-track journey through sunset pop, electronic melancholia and delusive migrations taking place around the Mediterranean. The album features several guest vocalists, including the stadium-packing phenomenon LIBERATO hailing from Napoli, the Moroccan-born Paris-based DJ and singer Glitter٥٥, the catchy Italo pop artist Cosmo as well as Chico Blanco, a young singer and producer at the forefront of Spain's new generation of independent pop music artists. In the Middle is a reflection on recent years. A story about movement and migration around the Mediterranean but also the notion of a moving identity. It's about the luck of the drawer, finding yourself born in the middle of the "west", whilst others strive to get here with the hope of a better life. It's about being in the middle of music and cultures and the beautiful accidents that this movement has produced over the years. Above all, it's a celebration of the beauty of the movement to a better life, to create something new, with hope and optimism whatever the circumstances. It's a celebration of diversity and inclusivity. For fans of Skream, Catz N Dogs, KiNK, Axel Boman, Alfredo. Translucent blue vinyl.

Bawrut: "I was born in Gorizia, a city with a centuries-old, multi-ethnic identity literally split in two by a border (Italy and Slovenia) after the Second World War. Perhaps for this reason I have always felt closer and more aligned with the encounters between cultures and people, instead of the rigid idea of nationalism and the notion of a unique identity. Through my music I try to combine languages and sounds to make a record that celebrates the union, the meeting and crossing of experiences."
