Album Watch: Skimming The Skyline

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Yes, I'm still on my deep House kick and once again an album has plopped into my lap for musical consumption. To satisfy my craving, vet of the San Francisco music scene, DJ/producer Miguel Migs has released his Outside The Skyline project--which is a House music dreamsicle.

He's wrangled in a wonderful array of guest spots on this one from House divas like Lisa Shaw and Aya, to Bebel Gilberto and to one of my personal favorite ladies of the 70's and 80's, Miss Evelyn "Champagne" King. Oh, and silly me, how could I forget Meshell Ndegeocello who makes two appearances?

As surprising as that merging of the minds is and how most Meshell die-hards might think she's out of her comfort zone, from the sounds of "Tonight" and "Close Your Eyes" you'll find Migs and Meshell should happen much more often. Yet, Meshell isn't the only showpiece as Miss Evelyn reminds us why she is so damn good (and terribly underrated) on "Everybody", and Lisa Shaw does her thing on "Breakdown"---just good things all around on this. So take a mind break, kick back in the cubicle, or whatever and have at the stream below!
