Fresh footed and rife from a whirlwind year for both respective beat smiths, Maceo Plex and Miguel Campbell take on remix duties for Butch’s long-awaited single ‘Highbeams’ for Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Creations imprint.
Packing the same hypnotic ambience and melodically refined elements that have championed him to the ranks of House master and beyond, Maceo Plex’s remix sets the precedent for things to come to a stunning high for 2013. For the B-side, Miguel Campbell complements Benjamin Franklin’s seductive vocals with his signature deep and minimalistic stylings for yet another soulful instalment from the master of unpretentious music with a sexy disposition.
Out now on Beatport.
Between the phenomenal ‘Something Special’ and his latest injection of warped disco matrimony ‘I Can Fly’ alongside Matt Hughes, Leeds based groove smith Miguel Campbell has been a force to be reckoned with over the past twelve months. But courtesy of a sneaky premier by Jamie Jones on BBC Radio One, the first single from Campbell’s debut full-length album for Hot Creations finally sets in motion this hotly tipped landmark from the slick British club asset.
Pairing his seemingly mismatched club stylings with yet another seductive and soulful topline of infectious properties, Campbell reigns supreme once again in his ability to drive a deep and melodic backbone into the untarnished underground House scene. While the taboo image of the aforementioned underground may go up the air with every new discussion, this sophisticated dose of melodic floor fuel is yet another indicative mark of quality against the master of unpretentious music with a sexy disposition.

As the founding fathers of the UK’s latest heartfelt House imprint, Leeds based floor filler Miguel Campbell follows-up the insatiable ‘Something Special’ alongside Outcross Records co-founder Matt Hughes for the disturbed disco concoction ‘I Can Fly’.
Off the back off Campbell’s sexy summer anthem for Hot Creations, the duo fuse vintage charm with modern club attitude to forge a fatal dose of staggered chord surges and infectious vocal loops throughout. Ditching the chill factor for a strong summer-headed floor filler, Hughes and his notorious label mate set the tone for their latest label endeavour to a notable high with inspiring proof that the resurgence in Disco fuelled club music need not be a cringe worthy affair.
