DJ Midas is a true New England treasure. He has been DJing for over 20 years and is still fresher than most! Midas started to get noticed back in 1994, when he was throwing all nighters at Manchester, NH's Empire Theater as well as in any warehouse/vacant office building he could get his hands on. Things got busy quick, and by 1995 Midas was playing over New England. In 1997, Midas helped create Operation: Boom, which was New England's first weekly all night mega party w/ weekly attendance averaging 1500+. Boom featured world class dj's from around the globe. In 1998 Midas opened Fortune 500 Records in Manchester, NH. F500 featured underground vinyl, cd's, clothing, party tickets, dj gear, and more. Midas is also the founder of New England's Fortune 500 Soundforce, which is, still to this day, a collective of forward thinking artists that do it for the right reasons. In 2006 Midas started an online radio show, "Meltdown City," where he co-hosts with fellow Fortune 500 DJ SP1.
Midas has performed at thousands of gigs, never doing the same thing twice. He dips into house, techno, dub step, ambient, ghetto funk, disco, tribal, drum and bass, trap, downtempo, and more. You can catch Midas all over the northeast; keepin it real at clubs, festivals, and raves.
