About Salted Music

In 2004, Miguel Migs started his own Salted Music imprint. No stranger to independent and major labels, the founding of Salted Music was a more personal venture. The idea behind Salted Music is for Miguel to have a creative outlet for releasing forward thinking; soul based electronic music that is not limited in tempo. Not just instituted for Migs’ own creations, Salted Music is a vehicle for upcoming and well-known artists who come across his path and catch his ear.

I wanted to start something new to keep things fresh, interesting, and exciting for me. I want to build my own catalog of material,” says Migs. “Also, while on the road I always get demos from artists I’m into. I want to be able to release some of this material and help get it out there, push new artists with interesting, quality material of any style: funky, tech-y, soulful, vocal, instrumental.”

Expanding Beyond The Nightlife

The initial 18 months of Salted’s existence, it was strictly a 12” label directed towards dancefloor-oriented tracks. Once recognized in the dance community as a source for reliable grooves, the time was ripe for Salted to broaden its reach beyond the clubs. This was done with the release of the imprint’s first compilation in September 2005, Get Salted: Volume One, collected and mixed by Migs himself. Volume One set the tone for the label with choices from Migs’ inimitable taste with a focus on spontaneity, flow, and listening pleasure, rather than the recreation of a night out.
