MIGUEL MIGS Nude Tempo One (Astralwerks) Rating: NNN
Naked Music fans will love this mix disc by Miguel Migs. The trend-setting label’s influence is all over the selections, with three new Naked Music tracks, including one by Migs himself. For those unfamiliar with the label, they specialize in mellow, understated funky jazzy house. The vocals are usually processed and dubbed out, and the singers whisper more than they wail. This mix captures that essence but doesn’t go much beyond it, so it’s a pleasant spin but not mind-blowing.
