Gatefold double LP version, with insert. Electronic duo Cage & Aviary present their debut album Migration on Prins Thomas' Internasjonal imprint. Part man, part machine, part cockatiel, Cage & Aviary take flights of fancy whenever they can. Jamie Paton is a DJ, a one-finger keyboardist, and a pot-tickler. Nigel of Bermondsey is a musician, South London's finest oscillator, and a dedicated dabbler. Together, they are winners of the cosmic lottery. Having put out releases to much acclaim, Cage & Aviary have since spread their wings with releases on DFA, Tiny Sticks and Astro Lab. Their own label, The Walls Have Ears, is slowly carving out a reputation for quality dubbed-out dance music, too. Now, the feathered friends are set to take a new flight of fancy on Migration. From the rolling, cinematic sheen of "Giorgio Carpenter (Director's Cut)" that openly wears its influences on its sleeve to the slo-mo, disco-not-disco of "Good Egg, Bad Apple," the pair spread their production wings across the dancefloor. "Dead Dancers" brings a live, percussive and guitar Liquid Liquid vibe and then in contrast, we have the shimmering and floating, sun-drenched keys and vox that melt into "Friday The 14th Part IV." Proto-house groove "Lean On Me" features guest vocalist Denise Johnson (of Screamadelica and A Certain Ratio fame) and title track "Migration" oozes yet more Moroder and Carpenter-inspired funk.
