Midoca’s mau5trap debut EP weaves tales of growth, vulnerability, and understanding. ‘Dry The Rose’, the lead single of his forthcoming EP, is out now.
Midoca is the project of Los Angeles based producer and composer Chaz Treharne. With artistic capabilities and talent ranging across a textured soundscape, Midoca euphoniously pairs ambient, layered productions with his own melancholy vocals – conveying pure, raw emotion within every fleeting bar.
“’Dry The Rose’ is about the immortalization and acceptance of a passing relationship. To ‘clip off the thorns and dry the rose,’ is to release the pain of what once was but preserve what was learned and experienced. The love is no longer alive but I can hold a memento and memory of it with admiration.” – Midoca
Transcending the boundaries of genre, Midoca combines sonic electronic elements with avant-garde production techniques to create a style that is uniquely his own. The EP’s namesake track comes as part one to Midoca’s story, chronicling the means of a powerful journey ending in acceptance and new, hopeful beginnings. Thoughtful and poignant, Midoca’s entrancing vocals craft soul-stirring melodies atop stunning synths. Melancholic to its core, the LA-based producer creates a mellifluous testament to shedding stale skin. “Dry The Rose” is an urgent plea for important change, and an everlasting reminder that even in moments of pain, we can emerge stronger and more in-tune than before.
