“Detroit’s Alton Miller has been in the game for the past three decades coming up alongside luminaries Derrick May, Chez Damier and the late Frankie Knuckles and releasing material on the likes of Peacefrog,
Moodymann’s Mahogany Music, Theo Parrish’ Sound Signature and Clone amongst others. Suffice to say, Miller stands as an extremely important figure in the history of authentic, soul-drenched house music.

Title-track ‘A Says Hello’ opens the package and as expected we’re treated to an elegant slice of hous einfused with a flawless musicality as multi-layered synth chords, pads and swells intertwine alongside dusty drum samples. ‘Cool But So…’ follows, embracing an Acid-Jazz feel with broken, organic rhythms, sweeping pads and warm chord progressions throughout.

Mule Musiq artists Chaos In The CBD step up to rework ‘Cool But So…’ next, adding their own spin tothing s via warbling Rhodes licks, bright chord sequences, a wandering bass line and an insistent organic drum groove. ‘Below The Underdog’ then rounds out the package perfectly with gritty bass hits, tension building synth swells and a rugged, bumpy drum groove.”

“The downtown Detroit afterhours club is a huge part of the city’s musical legacy and a key moment in techno history – it’s to the Motor City what the Paradise Garage was to New York and the Music Box to Chicago. A thoroughly DIY affair, the Music Institute was famously rough around the edges.”

“I have been surrounded by music all my life. When I was really young I had a choral class for voice. I played cornet in 4th grade. In Detroit there are many great musicians and vocalists and I have been able to work with some of the best. I listen to all kinds of music and that’s been my biggest education.”

New Interview of Alton Miller is out on Ibiza-Voice magazine. 
Read it here: http://www.ibiza-voice.com/story/news/10217

“First you have to understand that house music is many things to many people. The DJs that are getting rich don’t play soulful house, Afro, broken beat or anything close to the original essence of house music. I think a lot of the originators made a decision to either push forward or change careers. Once a style of music is accepted by the masses, that usually means that the sound has changed and become more commercial. Some artists changed their sound to adapt. Some of us stayed true. I found my audience and they found me. It’s a beautiful thing.”
