Miguel Migs

Though he didn't found the label, Miguel Migs' productions (under the Petalpusher and L'isha aliases as well as his own name) gained the most fame for Naked Music, the house label formed by producer Jay Denes (aka Naked Music NYC). The template for Naked Music -- audible since its first release, Petalpusher's "Breaking It Down" -- is smooth, polished, organic house music, much more chilled than mainstream house and surprisingly song- and musician-oriented for the norm in the dance world. (Also a contributor to building the Naked Music brand was Stuart Patterson's exotic artwork; the most immediately identifiable marriage of audio and visual since Designers Republic first designed a Warp sleeve.)
