Each of the Gil, Migs and Rog song drops have featured guest vocalists and feature the guys collaborating with some of the biggest names in the West Coast scene, including Slightly Stoopid, Long Beach Dub Allstars, Tippa Irie, Sonny Sandoval from P.O.D., and more.
“Having played a ton of shows with BURNT and getting to know how creative they are, its not surprising when they turn in brilliance. This song began the same as our last collaboration ‘Believe It‘, where they heard the Gil, Migs and Rog tune ‘Dee Minor‘ and requested the files and re-worked it into a monster,” said guitarist Miguel Happoldt. “Aside from the vocals, they added a new bass, horns, and vocals by long time friend and collaborator Spencer Neezy that sound exactly like turntables. Once they sent in the rough mix I knew it had to be mixed by the one Roger Rivas. I knew Roger would keep it bangin’ but rootsy, a sometimes difficult line to walk for the modern mixer. Most of all, the message in the lyrics is the most important thing to me and I hope it can help people all over find a new way to think and grow!”
Gil, Migs and Rog are a Los Angeles based dub trio comprised of drummer Gil Sharone (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Jerry Cantrell, Team Sleep), guitarist Michael “Miguel” Happoldt (Skunk Records, Perro Bravo) and keyboardist Roger Rivas (The Aggrolites, Long Beach Dub Allstars). Gil, Migs and Rog primary focus is creating modern ‘riddims’ with an early eighties Jamaican flavor. Rather than have a typical dub remix of a song, the band prefers to solo over the riddim in a fashion similar to Augustus Pablo, Jackie Mitto or Ernest Ranglin.
