About Midas 104
Willi Schumacher aka Midas 104 is an uprising producer and live act of the Berlin music scene. Detached from musical trends, Schumacher produces authentic music. His productions convince with a fine arrangement of strong bass drums, harmonic melodies and dreamy synthesizers. The surprise moment is an important element for Midas 104. Always open for new things, his music tends to play with melancholic deep house pieces which can easily drift to other genres.

He is especially fascinated by its complexity compared to hiphop music. His job at Kater Holzig, were he worked as a runner in the beginning, and long conversations with live act Jonas Saalbach gave him a deeper insight into the Berlin club and music landscape.
