â€¢ MIGUEL MIGS â€¢
Miguel Migs, who has a new album â€˜Outside the Skylineâ€˜, is now moving well and truly beyond the limitations of the house scene in which he first made his name. His deep seated love of reggae and dub shines strongly through as well as his passion for classic rock, blues, funk and soul.
Not that his career to date hasnâ€™t been illustrious enough. Just look the list of collaborators heâ€™s managed to attract: original disco diva Evelyn â€˜Champagneâ€™ King, reggae legends Capleton, Half-Pint and Freddie MacGregor, Meshell Ndegeocello, nu-jazz singer Georg Levin and bossa nova phenomenon Bebel Gilberto all feature on the album, alongside Migsâ€™ regular vocal co-conspirators, Aya and Lisa Shaw. No slave to metronomic dancefloor rhythms and tempos, the resulting long-player blends influences from house, jazz, reggae, soul and more, with a heavy emphasis on high-quality songwriting â€“ and equally high production values. â€œIâ€™m pretty happy with this album, but really I still feel like Iâ€™m at the beginning of my career â€” as an artist, as a songwriter and as a producer. I plan on doing this for another 30 years.â€
â€¢ LISA SHAW â€¢
It all started in New York City, almost by accident. The Toronto native came to New York on vacation, and never went home. Being in New York, Lisa received a warm welcome from the underground electronic community, and released her first single written by DJ Smash. A few years later she teamed up with Naked Music Recordings and writing partner and producer Dave Warrin collaborated with Jay Denes to create, â€œYou are Loveâ€ and one of her most popular songs, â€œAlways.â€ â€œAlways,â€ earned her global acclaim that even the pop queen herself, Madonna mentioned the song as being, â€œso coolâ€ in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine in 2001. In 2005 she released her debut album â€œCherryâ€ with producers and co-writers Jay Denes, Dave Warrin, and Eric Stamile.
Lisa Shawâ€™s music is featured on a broad spectrum of genres ranging from Deep House and Down tempo to Drum & Bass and Broken Beat. Presently, Lisa tours solo as well as with dj/ producer Miguel Migs of â€œSalted Musicâ€ in San Francisco. Salted Music released her 2nd album â€œFreeâ€ and has been her home since her departure from Naked Music in 2007.
â€¢ ROB GARZA â€¢
Spend a day with Thievery Corporationâ€™s Rob Garza and you might hear him make reference to David Cope, the university professor who studies music and artificial intelligence, or mention Garzaâ€™s travels to Sudan and Nepal, or explain why The Clashâ€™s London Calling may just be the best-produced album in rock history. So itâ€™s not surprising that Garzaâ€™s thoughtful curiosity about the world finds its way into his sophisticated, impeccably crafted musical soundscapes that reflect not only his broad appreciation for diverse styles of music (everything from Brazilian bossa nova and Jamaican dub reggae to vintage film soundtracks and psychedelic space rock), but also his take on the complicated times in which we live.
Since banding together with Eric Hilton to form Thievery Corporation 16 years ago, these two independent thinkers have taken a DIY approach to their musical and cultural interests, which has led to the formation of their own record label, ESL Music, through which Thievery Corporation release recordings by a slew of international artists, such as Federico Aubele, Ursula 1000, and Thunderball, as well as their own recordings. The studio is where the two songwriters and producers have crafted their own output: six studio albums, three compilations, and numerous EPâ€™s and singles â€” an impressive body of diverse work that has made Thievery Corporation one of the most influential and respected names on the electronic/dance music scene.
â€¢ JEREMY SOLE â€¢
The rich Chicago history of Blues, Jazz, Disco, House and Funk were all part of Jeremy Soleâ€™s upbringing and his obsession has grown to include music from around every corner of the world.
As Co-Founder and resident DJ of Afro Funke', J.Sole brings a diverse mix of music lovers together each week blending Afrobeat, Funk, Reggae, Latin and Brazilian rhythms. In April 2006, Sole spent 6 months in the studio producing with Ms. Lauryn Hill. After hearing him mix, she asked if he had ever considered getting into radio, "because this is the music the people need to hearâ€. A few months later KCRW called to ask him that exact same question and he now hosts a show every Wednesday night on KCRW.
Jeremy, who was recently named 2011 Best DJ (Worldwide Awards) by Gilles Peterson, is also the co-founder of theLIFT - monthly, all-night warehouse events with heavyweights like King Britt and Danny Krivit gracing their stages. What started at his small downtown loft, grew to well over 1,000 people as LA came together to celebrate their one-year anniversary.
â€¢ MARQUES WYATT â€¢
Sonic love travels in many dimensions â€“ through visceral pathways of the senses, as a uniting force on dance floors everywhere, in movements spanning entire eras to unify â€“ whether souls, states or nations. And as sonic love relates to house music, Marques Wyatt is a seminal pioneer.
In the mid â€˜90s, at a time when the shape shifting of house music was rarely heard outside Chicago and New York, Marques introduced the East coast sound to his native Los Angeles via legendary house parties like BBC, MACâ€™s Garage and Does Your Mama Know, to name a few. In the ensuing years, his prowess as a talented DJ, promoter, and producer earned him recognition as one of the most sought-after artists in the genre, domestically and internationally. Always true to his inner visionary, Marques continued his ventures into unchartered territory by introducing Los Angeles to Acid Jazz through Brass, his unforgettable weekly which debuted live performances of high profile acts such as Jamiroquai and the Brand New Heavies way back when. At the same time, Marques continued playing his own brand of uncompromising, soulfully organic house alongside talents such as Frankie Knuckles, Louie Vega, David Morales, Danny Teneglia, King Britt, Mark Farina, and Miguel Migs. Marquesâ€™ keen sixth sense for creating epic parties culminated in his weekly house institution, Deep, now going strong in its thirteenth year.
