Featuring dancehall legend Capleton‘The System’ was one of the standout tracks from Miguel Migs’ recent album ‘Outside the Skyline’ and captured the attention of none other than dub legendMad Professor who provides two remixes.  Other re-rubs come fromRob Garza (Thievery Corporation), Rob Paine and see the triumphant return of Migs’ Petalpusher alias, infamous in the late 90’s and early 00’s for releases on Naked Music.

Where Migs created a beat-driven, progressing tune on ‘The System’, 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. Rizlas recommended.

The second half of the single sees Migs return to his Petalpushermoniker for a deep Salted groove.  Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza delivers a building synth progression and Rob Paine rounds out the remixes with a bouncing pool party clatter behind Capleton’s alternating growl and croon.

Miguel 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.”

I just stood there in awe watching Larry Levan work the sound system and play tracks I’ve never heard so powerful.” – Louie Vega on his first visit to the legendary NYC club
Paradise Garage in 1980

Agev Munsen feat. Cassio Ware – “Gotta Get With You (Ancestral Mix)”

Louie Vega remains one of a handful of superstar dj’s that remains close to his musical roots and able to play a tremendous cross section of music to his audiences from the Super Bowl opening to huge township parties in South Africa, Louie’s fanbase keeps on growing. “Mad Styles and Crazy Vision 2: A Journey Into Electronic, Soulful, Afro & Latino Rhythms” was conceived to highlight the fact that the high-energy dance music that graced dance floors throughout the seventies and eighties (and had a profound influence on his own career) is very much relevant today.

The music nerds amongst you will be surprised, as we were, to discover the intricate levels of filtering and phasing that went into Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs In The Key of Life’ LP, and there is a recognizable strand of today’s disco influenced dance producers applying the trickery of pioneers such as Larry Levan, Arthur Baker and Patrick Adams. Full marks if you acquire this album – not only for supporting the movement but also for acknowledging the great fusion that disco was and still is. With sprinklings of African, Latin, jazz, funk and electro pop rhythms the production today is tighter in some instances but still breathy, sexy, up tempo and ultimately for the sweaty dance floor. While Louie circles the globe spreading his musical message, this compilation manages to capture some of the magic he brings to the various dancefloors.

Grammy Award winner (and four time Grammy nominated) and house music pioneer Louie Vega is one of the leading Dance Music DJ’s in the world. He is also one half of the legendary DJ/Production team Masters at Work who produced and remixed countless songs for the likes of Madonna, George Benson, Marc Anthony, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Black Eyed Peas, and Curtis Mayfield to name a few. They also went on to release the acclaimed landmark Nuyorican Soul project on Talking Loud/ Mercury Records in 1997.

Over a decade ago Louie Vega did his first mix CD for the BBE label. Finally the follow up to Mad Styles and Crazy Visions takes up the mantle of how far dance music has continued to evolve fusing a broad range of influences that sum up Louie Vega and the BBE music philosophy.
