Remarkably, it’s been 23 years since Motor City legend Alton Miller released his first 12″. Here, he dips into the archives of previously unreleased material to present a trio of cuts From The Vaults. He’s at his positive best on “Waiting For You”, a loose and organic sounding deep house gem smothered in slick, modern soul vocals, hazy chords and jazzy musical motifs. There’s a slightly more bumpin’ feel about the similarly soulful “Run & Hide”, which benefits greatly from chunkier beats, bolder bass, and some fabulously spacey synth solos. Best of all, though, is instrumental flipside “In The Spirit”, where dislocated vocal snippets and winding melody lines ride a dense, Afro-influenced drum track.

Alton Miller‘s last EP “The Vault” is out today on Neroli records. The Italian DJ Volcov, known for his tremendous disco sets, founded the record label in 2001. Since then, he releases plenty of beautiful soulful tracks and “From The Vaults” is no exception.


Alton Miller Interview in High Five Magazine

“George Baker and I were actually high school buddies, we even started a fashion line somewhere around 1986. At the same time, we were starting to get into music and we were travelling alot to places like Chicago, New York, Toronto – we did the Paradise Garage, the Twilight Zone in Toronto, we did Frankie Knuckles private’ loft parties, of course Ron Hardy parties too. Then we met Chez Damier in 1986, he is from Chicago but moved to Detroit during this time and there was another guy that I really admired. He is not with us anymore and his name was Tony Hunter. We both went to the Western Michigan University together for one year and he was really, really into clubbing, he knew alot about Frankie and Ron Hardy. Tony Hunter was our key introduction as far as clubbing in Chicago along with Derrick [May]. So we just started hanging out and travelling extensively from city to city, and it just hits us, “let’s do a club!””.
