Miguel Migs – The System

A track from Miguel Migs’ last album – Outside The Skyline – gets the remix treatment, including from Migs in his 90s Petalpusher guise, the Mad Professor and Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza. Listen or buy.

The original track already has elements of Thievery Corporation, with its dub style and vocals. Mad Professor has first go at remixing. This takes it even further into dub dancehall territory, with the expected echo set to maximum. Migs’ Petalpusher dub is a lovely piece of digital dub work, mixing dub and synths. Rob Garza goes for making it sounds like even more an offcut from a recent Thievery Corporation album with the gentle dub and giving rein to the righteous vocal.

Blurb: New Miguel Migs single ‘The System feat Capleton’. With additional remixes from Mad Professor, Petalpusher, Rob Garza, and Rob Paine. Featuring dancehall legend Capleton, this standout track from Migs’ recent full length Outside the Skyline captured the attention of none other than dub legend Mad Professor. Where Migs created a beat-driven, progressing tune, Mad Professor halves the tempo, saturating the track with space reverb and dancehall stabs. Then the Prof takes things one step further with the dub – a stable hi-hat ride lights the way through an absolute haze of echo and vocal chops. The second half of the single sees the triumphant return of the Petalpusher moniker for a deep Salted groove, followed by a building synth progression courtesy of Thievery Coroporation’s Rob Garza. Rob Paine rounds out the remixes with a bouncing pool party clatter behind Capleton’s alternating growl and croon.
