salted_music200In 2004, Miguel Migs started his own Salted Music imprint. No stranger to independent and major labels, the founding of Salted Music was a more personal venture. The idea behind Salted is for Miguel to have a creative outlet for release forward-thinking, soul-based electronic music that is not limited in tempo. Not just instituted for Migs’ own creations, Salted is a vehicle for upcoming and well-known artists who come across his path and catch his ear.

With Migs’ inimitable taste and focus on spontaneity, flow, and listening pleasure, rather than just the recreation of a night out in the discotheque, Salted is now recognized in the dance community as a source for reliable grooves that reach beyond the clubs.

Rap Give It All Promo200The world’s #1 female DJ/producer and exalted Queen of Drum & Bass, Charissa Saverio a.k.a. DJ Rap, is releasing her new artist album ‘Synthesis’ on Ministry of Sound February 2010.

The album is the follow up to her globally successful, multi-million selling LP ‘Learning Curve’ and features a darker, edgier side of DJ Rap. The album takes a bit of angst-ridden Alanis Morrisette, the melodic dreaminess of Imogen Heap, and a hint of BT and melds it into a rock-tronic hybrid. If you are looking for pretty 4-on-the-floor disco this is not the release!

The first single “Give It All Away” is already receiving massive kudos from critics and DJs alike and will be released November 30th exclusively on Beatport. Remix package includes Sultan & Ned Shepard, Starkillers, Thomas Sagstad and Metasyn.
