JR #11: Roats Miguel - Self-Titled EP 30 August 2016
South East London based sampling-producer Roats Miguel thrives in a duality of concepts. While his music brings to life an apocalyptic world in desperate need of a messiah, its sonic foundations are found in samples of his childhood memories, chopped and rearranged into collage-like beats - a sort of personal and reminiscent sonic playground.
Fascinated by sci-fi and armed with multi-instrumental skills, he created a 5 track debut EP that combines electronica with futuristic beat music, boasting Miguel’s singular compositional vision. Think LA Beat, think future garage, think outside the box.
EP will be out this September. Original cover artwork by Colombo Emeralds. Hear the opener track "He Has Returned" here.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE:
As you should know by now, we're really into our physical and DIY creations, so we decided to pair this new musical release with a Comic Book. Yeap, that's right. A comic book that further develops the concept of the release, showcases Miguel’s rich inner-world and sets the foundations for his mystic live performance. Roats co-wrote the story, Riça - from The JUICE Fanzine #02 cover fame - did all the illustration, and we're doing a release event to bring all of this to life.
Roats Miguel will be performing the EP in its entirety in his home turf, in Peckham's Rye Wax, a cosy venue that also has comic books and records for sale. Perfect match, right? This all will happen on September the 28th, and it's FREE ENTRY. More info on the event here.
You can pre-order everything here. Be aware that by buying the comic you get a download code for the music release.
