Alton Miller New EP ‘From The Vaults’ out on Neroli Records

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.
