To introduce yourself, who are you and how would you describe your music?
MiDiMAN is a project of two Djs from Yekaterinburg city, Russia – Lenya Goosev & Sergey Silvertone. We both love house music, so our style is smooth & melodic deep house, with nu-balearic flavor & classic US deep house. At the same time we always try not to restrict ourselves within the described style. Each new track is a sincere experiment.
How long have you been producing, and how did the name MiDiMAN start?
We became friends in 2011 & started to make music at the same time. By the time our first tracks wanted to release Tokyo Red, we did not have a name. We just made music, and when the question came to see under what name we should release it, our eyes fell on the midi keyboard, which we used. Not having much time to think, we decided to name our union – Midimen.
Which other countries have you played/ thrown parties at?
The geography of our performances is limited to Russia. As DJs, we traveled all over the Ural Mountains, and is well known outside of our city.
What advice would you give to up and coming DJs/ promoters?
Love the music, believe in music.

Lenya: Depeche Mode, Spirit Catcher, Spiritchaser, Ross Couch
Serg: Above & Beyond, Paul Van Dyk, Faithless, Depeche Mode, Fat Boy Slim, Pet Shop Boys
