Within the budding G-house sub-genre, Miguel Puente‘s name has become synonymous with thugged-out gangster shit. Releasing material on Lower East Records, No. 19 Music, and Hot Creation’s Hot Waves, Miguel has continued to showcase his vicious dark and deep synth lines. With a sound similar to that of Amine Edge or Kolombo this Mexican native has become one of the fore-front producers in the gangster variant of deep house. Having released a remix for OFF Recordings last year, label owner Andre Crom loved Miguel’s unique sound and quickly signed him to the prestigious label.
The title track, “Small Proposition,” is all about its catchy and bold vocal sample courtesy of the late great Nate Dogg (R.I.P.). The sample plays over an absolutely massive and ferocious bassline, which combined is bound to go down very well with pop-loving DJs .”Lil Freakyness” has similar ingredients, but uses them in a sleazier and darker manner, making it the weapon of choice for your next after hours-set. Mat.Joe then delivers a fly ass remix of “Small Proposition,” turning the track into a more groove-based affair that builds towards a big central break.
Below is the entire “Small Proposition” EP, as well as some of my selected favorites put out by Miguel these last couple of years. Be sure check out the promising producer’s SoundCloud and Facebook, and support the artist by buying the songs via the links below!
