SIDIZEN KING – “Stuck in the Middle”

“Stuck in the Middle”, a track by LA-based singer/songwriter SIDIZEN KING, is a showcase of the artist’s ability to merge elements of electronica and hip-hop into a very accessible hybrid, one that features a joyous chorus and sleek verses. The track details “that place between exclusivity and friendship that this generation increasingly finds itself in” — stuck in the middle, specifically. It speaks to non-committal nature of courtship in the millennial era, amidst a punctual vocal tempo and swelling electro-pop backing adornment that builds cohesively into a highly contagious chorus. With relatable lyrics and a great beat, it’s no wonder it made Spotify’s New Music Friday this week.

The track was produced by casualkimono, who also produced SIDIZEN’s “Don’t Let Me Down” remix, which hit #1 on Hype Machine. This one seems poised to be another success. SIDIZEN KING is undoubtedly fast on the rise.
