For their latest single No.19 Music turn to the excellent Miguel Puente for an EP of soulful, twisted grooves…
2011 ended on a high for Jonny White & Nitin’s No.19 Music label with Maceo Plex dropping ‘Under the Sheets’, for many, one of the biggest records of the year. 2012 has already begun in style with the awesome ‘So Good EP’ from rising star Louie Fresco and now No.19 looks to continue its unbrokenrun of quality music with this; the latest single from Barcelona based Mexican DJ/Producer Miguel Puente.
Puente has been at the heart of Barcelona’s thriving scene since relocating there from his hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. He has established himself not only as a sought after DJ and producer but also as a promoter, putting on some of the cities hottest parties with guest such as Soul Clap, Art Department, Lee Foss etc. It should be no surprise then that his talents came to the attention of fellow Barcelona resident and No19 head honcho Johnny White who snapped him up to record for what has become one of the most talked about labels around. Miguel’s single kicks off with title track ‘What You Do’, an incredible update on the classic sound of early house, with 808 drum patterns, bubbling bass, old school synths and seductive vocals fused into an infectious piece of house music, sublime!
Next up we have the excellent ‘Save Each Other’ with its dark edged, future retro synth work, haunting riffs and speaker shaking bassline playing off the classic vocals perfectly. The package is completed with a third vocal cut in the shape of the electro influenced ‘It’s Been So Long’ which has a deeper, cinematic inspired feel whilst still retaining a strong dancefloor sensibility, definitely one for the early hours! ‘What You Do’ is another superb release from a label that is unstoppable at the moment and an artist who looks set for big things, enjoy.
