Release Date: 26th March 2021
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.
