NEW MUSIC: MIGUEL MIGS – OUTSIDE THE SKLINE

Following on from the single Everybody (here) out on Monday, Migel Migs has a new album coming out. I’m not a big fan of deep house but always have a soft spot for Miguel Migs. When the sun is shining, his tracks really work.

The new album has that mix of sun-kissed tracks and disco influenced cheese. Intro – Life is the former with its dub influenced sound and much of the rest, the latter. The album’s not out for a while, so make do with another mix from the new single in the meantime. This remix is by Kid Who, who turns in a techno-type dub mix. Hardens up very nicely. To listen and download.

Miguel Migs – Everybody ft Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King (Kid Who Italo Dub)

Blurb: The mighty Miguel Migs returns with his third artist album, a genre-crossing creation featuring guests ranging from Bebel Gilberto to Capleton to Meshell Ndegeocello. When it came to recording his new album ‘Outside the Skyline’, Miguel Migs was able to pull together an impressive line-up of collaborators; original disco diva Evelyn “Champagne” King, reggae legends Half Pint and Freddie McGregor, first lady of musicianship Meshell Ndegeocello, Berlin based singer Georg Levin and bossa nova phenomenon Bebel Gilberto all make an appearance on the album, alongside two vocalists who’ve been regular coconspirators, Aya and Lisa Shaw. The result is an album that’s trademark Migs. Informed by house but no slave to metronomic dancefloor rhythms and tempos, it takes influences from jazz, reggae, soul and more, with a heavy emphasis on high-quality songwriting and equally high production values. Despite achieving levels of success – both critical and commercial – Migs remains a genuinely humble, self-effacing individual. A globe-trotting A-list DJ, nominated on a Beatport poll as Best Deep House Producer who, rather than constantly bigging himself up, prefers to let his music to the talking. Thankfully, Migs’ music more than does the talking – it speaks to people. Just listen.
