If you haven’t heard of Miguel Campbell by now all that’s about to change as Hot Creations get set to release the UK producer’s first EP for the prolific label, ‘Baby I Got it’ - a mouth-watering mix of sexy disco-tinged house cuts with a dose of murky business from Richie Ahmed in the remix.
Kicking off the EP, title track ‘Baby I Got It’ is a teasing disco-house workout full of funky bass, and shimmering, cosmic streaks. Miguel’s retro bounce, richly weaved instrumentals and down-low b-line make ‘Baby I Got It’ a compelling introduction to Miguel’s future facing disco strut.
Next up, ‘Something Special’ flaunts a sultry RnB vocal infused with a garagey house vibe. Set against a glitterball backdrop, the velvet ripple of “Something special sexy wonderful” coursing through the tide of funk-laden disco grooves just oozes soul and sex appeal.
On remix duty, Richy Ahmed brings a dark and dirty edge to ‘Baby I Got It’. Driven by a chugging, druggy groove and warped distorted melody, this is moody tech built for the after hours. A Hot Natured resident, and part of the nu-school house explosion, Richy is cutting through the hype and proving himself to be a truly gifted party-starter behind the decks and in the studio.
Miguel Campbell is cruising for breakout success in 2011. Championed by Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Gadi Mizrahi of Wolf + Lamb and Art Department’s Jonny White over the past year as well as picking up support from BBC Radio 1, Miguel’s infectious musical style spans French filtered house and pure sunshine disco. A DJ since the early 90s, later releasing material as one half of duos HCB and M.A.M, the Leeds-based party maverick went on to establish his own imprint Outcross Records in 2006 as a platform for his productions. His edit ‘Kiss and Tell’ recently appeared on Soul Clap’s Social Experiment mix on No.19 Music. With the killer ‘Baby I Got It’ EP and an album in the pipeline for Hot Creations, Miguel is clearly making all the right moves.
