HEADSPACE EP (180GR)
Excellent detroitish Deep House
Smoothly combining his tendencies towards emotional and soulful deep house whilst building these elements on a steady foundation of tribal, percussive and dance rhythms, Miller manages to effortlessly pull you into his house sound with an impressive palette of ideas even if it's just one 4 track EP.A1 - All We Have is a dancefloor inspired jam, but don't get fooled. The track is infused with alot of deep juice and it drips irresistibly through the synths, short but smooth bassline and
percussive foreplay of different drum elements. Playful yet with enough momentum to wiggle
you in a positive dance sway.A2 - Shine On Me (Rollin To Detroit Mix), the track which was initially released for
Moodyman's KDJ Records back in 2002, got "revised" by Ricardo Miranda shows off perfectly
the emotional substance of Miller's deep vocal house interpretation with silky percussive lines in
between.B1 - Headspace is the pure example of a perfect B-side cut. Slow-burning rhythm filled with
organic perc stabs and dense but deep bassline, Miller again in a genius way intertwines slow
emotional story backed by almost raw harmonics but nevertheless well explained Detroit vibe.
B2 - After The Rain, which can be heard on Alton's "Souls Like Mine" album released on the
forementioned The Music Institute as a bonus cut. It's a slow dance between reemerging bassline
and subtle synth lines flowing on offset claps and smooth background bongos. pretty timeless
stuff if the atmosphere is dimmed right.
