Alton Miller – Nu Forms 12″ – Inner Muse

cs621435-01a-bigFlawless, passionate Detroit house, with a live sound and approach as closely tied in to Motown soul tradition as to modern dance music, this is the latest on Alton Miller’s own Inner Muse label.

Nowhere is the influence of Detroit’s musical heritage more clear than on Beautiful Brown People. Its supremely expressive flute and keyboard interplay over hand drums could moonlight as a Marvin Gaye instrumental. Nu Forms closes the EP with more of a boogie move, the title track has a more Chicago house vibe, but again less tracky and with a live jam feel. By contrast to some of today’s more self-conscious, ironic, or trend-following releases, this is one showing a more earnest, committed approach, as well as benefiting from Miller’s experience over two decades of musical dedication.
