Born in Chicago but raised in Detroit, The Living
Legend Alton Miller joins Roots Underground
for his eighth vinyl release, and he does it in the
usual stylish way that has always distinguished
him in his nearly 30-years career.
From the Future is an EP composed of 3 tracks denoted
by arrangements decidedly more electronic than its latest
productions. It opens with Crossing (A), an irresistible club
tool of over 9 minutes with a “deep & techy” atmosphere
and poisonous breaks that leads us on a warm and
hypnotic trip immediately showing us the most dancefloor
and synthetic side of this prolific Afro-american producer.
The B Side starts with The World needs Love (B1).
Spiritual house music, ethereal keyboards, impending
arpeggios and a vocal sample that adds a certain emotion
to the track, in addition to naming it: 8 minutes of pure
Miller’s style. Brooklyn (B2) closes the B side with its
rhythm full of latin percussions and sounds that remind
to early NYC house music, without being nostalgic and
making that same feeling relevant to the current scene.
The graphic design of this EP is consistent with the new
style of the label, opened with Lorenzo Morresi’s EP
(RU007V), and this time it features the suggestive Greenstone
(Chrolastrolite) of the State of Michigan.
