Adding an eclectic and innovative edge to the current class of electronic music productions, one of San Francisco’s finest, Miguel Migs is set to release his much anticipated third album ‘Outside the Skyline’ on Om Records in partnership with Salted Music this September. Everybody feat. Evelyn “Champagne” King (Kid Who Italo Dub) by OmRecords
Migs has emerged from San Francisco’s deep house scene as an artist who transcends the stylistic limitations of genre in a way so very few have managed. In his own words, “I take inspiration from everything around me. Its not about trends or what’s fashionable, its about creative expression, quality, emotion and artistic integrity.”
‘Outside the Skyline’ is an intelligent, stunningly accomplished album that showcases not just a passion for quality, soulful melodies and intricate productions, but also a lush set of influences that stretch from early soul, dub and funk to house and Italo disco.
This melting pot provides the backdrop to Miguel Migs’ 21st century take on house music.
Showcasing an extraordinary line up of creative and internationally renowned artists – Migs’ reputation is such that, when it came to recording ‘Outside The Skyline’, he was able to pull together come impressive collaborators including original disco diva Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, reggae legends Capleton, Half-Pint and Freddie McGregor, first lady of musicianship Meshell Ndegeocello, Berlin based singer Georg Levin and bossa nova phenomenon Bebel Gilberto.
The result is an album that’s trademark Migs. Informed by house but no slave to metronomic dance floor rhythms and tempos. It takes influences from jazz, reggae, soul and more, with a heavy emphasis on high-quality song writing and equally high production values.
