In 2015 Middleton attended the acclaimed Mix With The Masters seminar at Studios La Fabrique in France to work with Grammy award-winning Mix Engineer, Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Ziggy Marley). 2015 also saw Middleton Produce and Mix Delhi 2 Dublin’s latest full length album “We’re All Desi” which has since been nominated for the 2016 Electronic Recording of the Year award at the Western Canadian Music Awards.

/Get in touch with me



Nick is fierce. He's one of the hardest working musicians I know, he's got mad production skills AND he's super easy to work with. Triple threat.
Working with Nick really elevated the quality of our work, but more importantly, we built a lasting friendship - we're now a part of a larger community that supports us in everything we do.
Nick’s ability to bring the best out of the artist while simultaneously creating dynamic and exciting mixes is what separates him from the average producer. His skills transcend genre, whether it’s rock n’ roll or a club banger, if Nick touched it you can expect greatness.
The most massive and varied beats yet to appear on a D2D record.
The band's latest record, which dropped last week on Westwood Recordings, puts Nick Middleton, one of the hottest producers in the scene at the controls.
