5FAVs with Miguel Campbell

Miguel Campbell is a producer and DJ galvanized by the house scene of the early ‘90s. Leading the way with his label Outcross Records, this is now a home for his unique brand of funk, alongside select releases on the world-renowned Hot Creations. He's been delivering quality music ever since. We invited him to our 5FAVs prior to his upcoming EP on Skint Records which comes as a collaboration with Jimmy Switch.


MUTINY - EAT LOVE LIVE 

“As an avid record collector, I have been a big fan of Mutiny and the Sunflower label for many years. I have been rocking this track in the small hours and the sound aligns with what I do perfectly. I actually met Rob from Mutiny a long time ago when I was 'raving' at Back to Basics in Leeds, he is a real nice guy and that makes me love this record & the ability to include it in my shows, even more.”

ACID ANGIE - BASS TO THE TOP

“The first release on my Outcross Black imprint by Acid Angie remains one of my go-to tracks in the club. The track has good party energy and retains a B-Boy feel in the bounce and the acid bass. I have opened my sets with this track a few times and it's a good one for me as it really stands out when the vocals begin and the beat kicks in.”

&ME – GARDEN

“I came across this track whilst preparing music for my most recent Australia tour. My friend was playing it constantly and decided to play it on my first gig. During this transitional time, party people are wanting more of musical experience and this track is equally as great at home as it is on the dance floor, on a Saturday night.”

MIGUEL CAMPBELL - TOGETHER IN EDM (IAIN O'HARE REMIX)

“Iain has come up with a killer remix of my latest release on Outcross. He has used his signature touch of cutting up the vocal and syncopating groovy bass licks. Iain O'Hare was one of the first artists signed to Outcross and along with Matt Hughes & I, Iain has helped to develop this nu-style sound.”

JIMMY SWITCH & MIGUEL CAMPBELL - CALCULATE THE GAP

Jimmy & I have so much fun in the studio and I think you can really hear that in this record. That fun translates through onto the dance floor too. There are lots of sections throughout this track, some moody moments, and some uplifting parts. It is the hip-hop vibe in this track that keeps me coming back. Jimmy and I are somewhat opposites when it comes to our approaches to music but the experimentation, conflict & cohesiveness works.
