Miguel Argüello was born in Bucaramanga, Colombia, in 1994. Since he was young, he’s been involved with music. He plays guitar since he was 9 years old and, although he also likes rock, from that young age he began to empirically experiment with electronic music.
Like any artist, he also has references that have boosted and influenced him during his career. After speaking with him, we asked him to tell us what were those five songs that he couldn’t miss in his playlists, and these were his answers.
Disclosure - You & Me (Flume Remix)
Flume is one of the most important producers of the moment. This remix, made especially for Disclosure, shows among its characteristics some features of Arguello's music, in the drops, for example. Flume is australian and, like Argüello, he was got involved with electronic sounds at a very young age.
'Forever' - Drake
This song was released in 2009 and got featurings from Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. It’s part of the album Forever and reveals the urban side of Argüello, which is also present in its production.
'Detroit Vs Everybody' - Eminem
This 2014 track had the collaboration of big rap and hip-hop artists such as Big Sean, Danny Brown, Trick-Trick, DeJ Loaf, Trick Trick and Royce da 5'9. The “Street flavor” of this song, were the path from the lowest to the top is narrated, was achieved thanks to the directly involving of Eminem in the production, along with Statik Selektah. It’s part of the compilation Shady XV.
'Through the wire' - Kanye West
Kanye West suffered an accident where he broke his jaw in three parts. Two weeks later, he decided to record this track, when his mouth was still ‘wired’ out, which gives a particular tone to his voice in the song. With a slight tropical touch, this song manages to convey to anyone who hears the pain that Kanye may have felt.
'Fall in Love' - Slum Village
This song talks about the love towards the things that we enjoy doing. With a touch of denunciation and freestyle, it has a beat that, from the beginning, catches the listener. The track was part of the album Fall in love, released in 2000.
Surprisingly, most of its unavoidables come from rap and hip-hop and not strictly from electronic or dance hall music. It’s notable, as usual, the presence of Eminem and Kanye West, probably because, like Argüello, they’re versatile and in constant renewing artists.
