A compilation of fourteen interpretations of Miguel Migs 2007 artist album, Those Things Remixed brings in artists such as Faze Action, Simon Grey and Cottenbelly to further expand on Mig’s funky house sound. Keeping with funk and highlighting Mig’s multi-instrumentalist sound, the organic bass lines and retro synth lines move from bumpin house, 70s disco, hip hop, rnb and reggae. Laden with a bevy of vocals from the likes of Lisa Shaw, Tim Fuller, Fred Ross, Sadat X and Junior Reid, throughout the album’s soulful edge the beat and instrumentation remain strong, and Those Things Remixed is undoubtedly dancefloor directed. And while it does gyrate on a certain old-school booty-shaking house charm, the skilled production and solid beats maintain its modernity. The best are Mig’s own where things like the throbbing bassline and jumping saxophone of “Make Things Happen” and “Let Me Be” as well as the driving handclap beats of his “Giving It All” gratifyingly thicken the overall nu-disco sound.
