Mieke Miami – The Light

Following on from her critically acclaimed first single, Whispering Pines, Mieke Miami brings us a sonorous spiritual Afro-jazz outing in the shape of her new single The Light.

Masterminded by producer Benjamin Spitzmüller, who works with a lot of Afrobeat and highlife bands, the track is centred around a deep, percussive Afro groove which he recorded in the studio himself and switched from a 7/4 to 4/4 tempo. Mieke’s flute, saxes and bass clarinet create wonderfully woven patterns over Benjamin’s hypnotic beats, underpinned by Mieke’s guitar and keys, as well as Alex Binder’s stout bassline. Both Mieke and Benjamin then added the final production flourishes to this short but perfectly formed tropical treat, for fans of Mulatu Astatke, Rah & The Ruffcats and Philophon Records alike.

The Light will be closely followed by the release of the Birdland album this summer, with live performances by Mieke and her band across Germany and beyond in the coming months!
