About 5 months ago or so, whilst doing a project on something obscure (dont ask.. seriously) i ran across a chap named Miguel Jontel. My ears could’nt believe it, did i just run into a new artist that is, dare i say, Amazing? Yes, i fucking did. Needless to say, i was more than impressed. The very first song i heard was Super Natural . I tried to compare him to other artist but i simply cant. He’s edgy yet radio friendly, slighlty commercial but different enough to stand out amongst old heads. His song writing and musicality is GENIUS. Im sure you’ve heard his work with his new single with North Carolina native J. Cole – All I Want Is You. He has a certain aesthetic and sound thats refreshing in this time of simple metaphors and basic beats. One of my favorite songs from his upcoming album is Sure Thing
Also i enjoyed his many acoustic covers and accapella’s on his youtube channel.
He’s currently signed to Jive Records and is working on his new album set to release in February 2011. I cannot WAIT to see what he does with his career, im sure he’ll be up there. Meanwhile you wait for the album, you can download The Mischief Mixtape here -> http://www.zshare.net/download/734944642184db7d/ and follow his Twitter
You could bet that never gotta sweat that.
