Outside The Skyline
Released On: Sep 20, 2011
Released By: Om Records / Salted Music
Adding an eclectic and collaborative edge to the current class of electronic music productions with Outside The Skyline, one of San Francisco's finest, Miguel Migs transcends the stylistic limitations of the deep house genre in a way so very few have managed. In his own words, "I take inspiration from everything around me. It's not about trends or what's fashionable, it's about creative expression, quality, emotion and artistic integrity."
When it came to recording Outside The Skyline, he was able to pull together some 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.
