June 8, 2010 Leave a comment
Tom Middleton (born 18 August 1971) is a prolific British recording artist, music producer, remixer and DJ.
A classically trained pianist and cellist, Middleton worked in the early 1990s with Richard D. James (with whom he shares the same birthdate), co-producing “En-Trance To Exit” on the Analogue Bubblebath EP for Exeter’s influential Mighty Force Records. This was followed by his first solo outing, “My Splendid Idea”, under the name Schizophrenia for the same label.
Soon after, he teamed up with Mark Pritchard. The pair recorded under a host of pseudonyms, including the popular Reload (featuring experimental techno and ambient music), Global Communication (primarily ambient), and Jedi Knights (electro funk and house music), plus lesser-known aliases Chameleon and Link & E621. Global Communication’s 1994 ambient album 76:14 is widely considered to be a landmark of the genre.
