“Middle” is a song by French DJ and electronic music producer DJ Snake featuring vocals from British singer Bipolar Sunshine. The song was released as a single on 16 October 2015 by Interscope Records. In July 2016, the song was announced as the lead single from DJ Snake’s debut album, Encore (2016). It was written by William Grigahcine, Aaron Kleinstub and Adio Marchant, and produced by the latter of two.
Entertainment Weekly writer Chuck Arnold called it a “breezy twirler that achieves after-hours airiness.” Ed Ledsham of Drowned in Sound put it alongside “Talk” for their “finer qualities of contemporary pop-dance” and the vocal talents of their respective featured artists, noting how Bipolar Sunshine’s delivery was “particularly unique.”
The song’s accompanying music video premiered on March 16, 2016 on DJ Snake’s YouTube account on Vevo. It was directed by Colin Tilley and features The Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson and actress Kiersey Clemons.
