Miguel Campbell – Beams of Light (The Remixes)
High-flying funk advocate Miguel Campbell marks an untimely peak in his global presence with the third single from his debut album Back In Flight School for Hot Creations. Off the heels of remix duties for Butch, “Beams of Light” is a hypnotic embodiment of the smooth yet supple combination of killers beats and warm melodic composition that has hallmarked his rise to fame. While Alexis Raphael’s take ups the tempo and scatters the lead work, Crooked Man’s Crooked Colors remix scores from a notably sinister sound scope from the outset. Finished off by Cerri, whose remix strips back the heyday acid sound whilst maintaining its vintage edge, this collective package screams unprecedented promise for the road ahead for Campbell and his likeminded peers at camp Hot Creations.
