I've been a fan of Miles since discovering his "Refined Textures EP" back in 2011 two years after his debut "Introspective Soul EP' maybe i was late on this producers work but since then followed him with each release which are few & far between as Miles ethos is definitely quality over quantity. His releases include other artists and frequently showcases their talents above his own, with output by Aybee, Dan Rodgers, Bittersuite, Life Recorder, Paramartha, Jacksonville, Tales Ov Rossi, Ourra & Tomi Chair, This release sees the limelight re-directed for a change and the beams of light focusing on the man behind the outfit and chief commander of Atmospheric Existence Miles Sagnia, "AERATION" takes the listener and wraps them up in a Deep House Winter Coat of aural pleasure, the album cover merely gives you a small insight of the journey ahead.

Music bosses have unveiled a revolutionary new recording format that they hope will help win the war on illegal file sharing which is thought to be costing the industry millions of dollars in lost revenue. Nicknamed the 'Record', the new format takes the form of a black vinyl disc measuring 12 inches in diameter, which must be played on a specially designed 'turntable'.
"We can state with absolute certainty that no computer in the world can access the data on this disc," said spokesman Brett Campbell. "We are also confident that no-one is going to be able to produce pirate copies in this format without going to a heck of a lot of trouble. This is without doubt the best anti-piracy invention the music industry has ever seen."
As part of the invention's rigorous testing process, the designers gave some discs to a group of teenage computer experts who regularly use file swapping software and who admit to pirating music CDs. Despite several days of trying, none of them were able to hack into the disc's code or access any of the music files contained within it.
"It's like, really big and stuff," said Doug Flamboise, one of the testers. "I couldn't get it into any of my drives. I mean, what format is it? Is it, like, from France or something?" Teenage computer hackers struggled to access the new disc. In the new format, raw audio data in the form of music is encoded by physically etching grooves onto the vinyl disc. The sound is thus translated into variations on the disc's surface in a process that industry insiders are describing as 'completely revolutionary' and 'stunningly clever.'
To decode the data stored on the disc, the listener must use a special player which contains a 'needle' that runs along the grooves on the record surface, reading the indentations and transforming the movements back into audio that can be fed through loudspeakers. Even Shawn Fanning, the man who invented Napster, admits the format will make file swapping much more difficult. "I've never seen anything like this," he told reporters. "How does it work?"
Pirates day's are numbered. As rumours that a Taiwanese company has been secretly developing a 12 inch wide, turntable -driven, needle-based, firewire drive remain unconfirmed, it would appear that the music industry may, at last, have found the pirate-proof format it has long been searching for.
not my words, but doesn't it make perfect sense? ;)
With the demise of many a record shop up and down the country over the last few years many people thought that was it for the black stuff. But reports show that it still has a place in today's society with independent pressing plants still providing smaller & limited runs to the public, this report courtesy of Engineering & Technology Magazine gives a further insight to its new lease of life.
As we dance to a beat that seems out of time
To the one you feel in the metronome of your mind, Does it offend you that our rhythm looks strange
Or causes you thinking to be re-arranged, Could it be that you would understand those beats to which we dance
More clearly had you been given the chance, So as you struggle to find the feel with your feet
Ask yourself…………can you dance to my beat
(to my beat)
Watch us get down to this groove with a afro-funk feel, While we get hiiiiigh to a rhythm with spiritual appeal, Expressions of freedom from the descendants of slaves, God gives us the strength for new horizons we must breathe, First bondage than mental now financially oppressed
With this beat we dance we know we’ve passed the test, So as you struggle to catch the rhythm with your feet
Ask yourself…………can you dance to my beat
(to my beat)
The rhythm… rhythm… rhythm… is our power section.
The freedom we feel in our soul
We dance to learn those lessons,
As our story continues to unfold
Our beats, our words our melodies, our gifts
From the givers of those gifts,
We’re merely the terminals through which they have passed
So as you struggle to catch the rhythm with your feet
In the beginning, there was Jack, and Jack had a groove.
And from this groove came the groove of all grooves. And while one day viciously throwing down on his box, Jack boldly declared, "Let there be HOUSE!" and house music was born. "I am, you see, I am the creator, and this is my house! And, in my house there is ONLY house music. But, I am not so selfish because once you enter my house it then becomes OUR house and OUR house music! And, you see, no one man owns house because house music is a universal language, spoken and understood by all. You see, house is a feeling that no one can understand really unless you're deep into the vibe of house. House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body. And, as I told you before, this is our house and our house music. And in every house, you understand, there is a keeper. And, in this house, the keeper is Jack. Now some of you who might wonder, "Who is Jack, and what is it that Jack does?" Jack is the one who gives you the power to jack your body! Jack is the one who gives you the power to do the snake. Jack is the one who gives you the key to the wiggly worm. Jack is the one who learns you how to walk your body. Jack is the one that can bring nations and nations of all Jackers together under one house. You may be black, you may be white; you may be Jew or Gentile. It don't make a difference in OUR House. And this is fresh

Ron Trent's musical journey began at age 14 in Chicago when he created Altered States, a raw and beautiful track that catapulted him into the hall of fame of house and techno. Ron made a name for himself as a DJ who would introduce rare disco and soul classics into the Windy City house blend.
Deeply influenced by artists such as Larry Heard, Roy Ayers or even Pat Metheny, he formed the seminal record label Prescription in 1993 alongside Chez Damier. Together they defined an era, creating some of the brightest moments in the history of house music - producing seminal singles for Detroit's KMS imprint and later working with Berlin's Maurizio/Basic Channel.
Ron has also produced and remixed the likes of Groove Collective, Amel Larrieux, Tony Allen and 4Hero, while putting out a string of remarkable 12"s with Anthony Nicholson for his Clairaudience label and two heavily underrated full length albums. Still travelling the world as an in demand DJ, Ron Trent is based in Chicago once more, having relaunched Prescription Records. Pop, dip and spin!
