Miguel Migs-Everybody Featuring Evelyn “Champagne” King
One of San Francisco’s finest, Miguel Migs returns this summer with a new single, entitled ‘Everybody’ featuring disco legend, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King. This release precedes Migs’ eagerly awaited upcoming album ,’ Outside the Skyline, out later this year on the multi faceted Om Records. According to Migs, “Evelyn King is such a legendary artist, I’ve been a fan of her songs like “Love Come Down” and “I’m in Love” for many years. It was a thrill to learn that she was a fan of my music also and interested in working together on a new song for my upcoming album. She was such a pleasure to work with, so open minded and easy going in the studio.” ‘Everybody’ evokes a soul-disco appeal with classic and current production values. Evelyn’s beautiful vocal talents soar over a blistering bass-line while textural synth stabs, funky guitar licks and warm melodies create the atmosphere.
The single package features a tantalizing display of remixes oozing funk, soul, disco and underground dance floor dubs from hotly tipped producers. While Migs gives us his Deep Salted Dub exploring the territories of deep-soul-disco and tech, Aki Bergen provides the quintessential and moody deep house Dub. The Hardsoul Vocal remix pushes the envelope into the realm of upbeat, peak time dance floor biz. With a plethora of remixes to choose from, Soul Clap completely switch the vibe and take us on a ride with their slow house interpretation that turns Italo Disco. Last but not least San Francisco’s Nav Izadi chops Evelyn’s vocals nicely over a nasty bass-line into a late night groove.
The package of part 1, ‘Everybody’ heralds the welcome and triumphant return of one of house music’s most respected artists. Be on the look out for Pt. 2 soon to follow featuring the Aki Bergen Vocal Mix, Hardsoul Dub, Ghosts of Venice, Vernon & Dacosta and Kid Who versions.
Migs’ reputation is such that, when it came to recording his new album Outside The Skyline, he was able to pull together an impressive line-up of collaborators including original disco diva Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, reggae legends Half-Pint and Freddie McGregor, first lady of musicianship Meshell N’degeocello, Berlin based singer Georg Levin and bossa nova phenomenon Bebel Gilberto all make an appearance on the album, alongside two vocalists who’ve been regular co-conspirators, Aya and Lisa Shaw. Migs adds, “Everyone on this album project was super easy going for that matter, with nothing but open-minded creative energy…”
