Miguel Migs emerged from the 90’s deep house underground scene to become the kind of artist who transcends the stylistic limitations of a genre so very few can. His musical journey began after picking up a guitar in his early teenage years and his first outlet was writing songs and playing in Dub/Reggae bands. Although Migs always loved and listened to all different styles of music, in the early 90’s he connected to the soulful sounds of Deep House. By the mid ’90s he began experimenting with producing electronic dance music. And by the time the new millennium dawned, a string of releases and remixes on numerous leading indie dance labels earned him an enviable reputation among discerning dance music fans worldwide. As Petalpusher, he’d also become a stalwart of the hugely influential Naked Music stable with his original productions, remixes and compilations.
Despite achieving levels of success – both critical and commercial – Migs remains a genuinely humble, self-effacing individual. A globe-trotting DJ, nominated on a Beatport poll as ‘Best Deep House Producer’ who, rather than constantly follows the trends or hype, prefers to let his music do the talking. Thankfully, his music more than does the talking – it speaks to people. Just listen.
Lisa Shaw’s warm, sexy vocals have graced many a house music track since 1995, but Lisa Shaw’s name is still fairly obscure. She’s a “house diva” — owner of an anonymous voice that soars above crowded dancefloors at 3 a.m., enchanting listeners, only to disappear a few minutes later. Anyone who’s ever gone clubbing has probably heard her — possibly more than once. Shaw is nearly ubiquitous in the house music scene. She’s collaborated with many famous producers, and has appeared on countless compilations.
Her Naked Music release “Always,” on which she shares writing credit with Dave Warrin, earned global acclaim and eventually convinced the label to sign her as a solo artist. In 2002, she joined up with Warrin and Jay Denes to form Lovetronic, scoring another hit with deep house track “You Are Love.” Naked Music’s merge with Astralwerks propelled Shaw to the top of the electronic music heap. Her 2003 full-length debut was recorded and promoted under the Astralwerks umbrella. Other collaborations with Naked Music artists including Miguel Migs and Jay Denes are in the works.
