Title: Outside The Skyline
Label: Om Records
Release Date: 20 September 2011
Diarise the 20th of September because that’s when Deep House aficionados can finally get their hands on the much-anticipated album by Miguel Migs- ‘Outside the Skyline.
Miguel has gathered the vocal talents of Meshell Ndegeocello, Lisa Shaw, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Aya, Reggae legends Capleton, Half-Pint and Freddie McGregor, Bebel Gilberto as well as Georg Levin. Those are some serious heavyweights and I can’t wait to drop all these tracks in a set!
I love the combination of Reggae and House, it’s been done before but I don’t think ever so slickly – definitely Zion sounds still flows through his veins. Trust me the single, ‘Everybody’, released in July is just the tip of the iceberg.
I really do love every track! Miguel has truly done himself proud and this album is definitely worth the 4-year wait since his last. I will be very surprised if ‘Outside the Skyline’ doesn’t make it into the Top 10 of Billboards Dance/Electronic Album chart.
As you can probably tell I have been a fan for a while, who doesn’t remember Nude Dimensions 1?
The man deserves credit for pioneering the Deep House sound and holding his own against other legends like Bob Sinclair and Dimitri from Paris. We all know what he can do, which is why when I say, “He’s done it again!” That should be all you’ll need to hear for this album to make it’s way into your collection.
