If you thought fusing the dated likes of East 17, Limp Bizkit and The Streets wouldn’t work as a pop conceit in 2013, you’d be absolutely right. Middleman, however, laugh in the face of such boundaries. ‘Helpless’ is obstinate and unnecessary – and will probably be massive, or at the very least dropped into the drooping middle of a Skrillex set.
