6157DJ Day is a typical product of modern day hip-hop-culture. He is a dedicated record digger and serious DJ who cut his teeth in the LA undergound scene alongside his friends Aloe Blacc and Exile. But selling beats to rappers was never his main ambition. Instead of doing beat-tapes he got himself a Fender Rhodes and MPC started making music.

Maybe it’s his upbringing in Southern California but there is definitley a “sunny” side to Day’s music. This may sound a bit like a cliche but when you are literally living in the desert it is not unlikely that this will affect your music. And it’s the combination of relaxed and soulful chords and melodies with serious beats and breaks that makes his signature sound.

Miles Bonny loves you. His music evokes feelings of honesty and musicality, and he wouldn’t want it any other way. Born to Francis Bonny, a professional trumpet player, Miles has been exposed to jazz, latin, and classical music all of his life. Growing up with trumpets around him, he played his first note at age 2. Frequent trips accompanying his father at latin, jazz, and symphony rehearsals allowed him to meet greats such as Tito Puente and Max Roach. Years later, as Miles developed his hip-hop and soul productions he felt that he owed it to those greats whom he met to create the best, most honest and progressive music that he could.

Slowly but surely people are taking notice of this Kansas City, Mo resident. His music has recently been covered in many publications including Scratch and URB Magazine.

“Miles” means soldier in latin, and Miles Bonny is a soldier of music.This strong passion for respect and development continues today as he lends the world not only his instrumental compositions, but his voice. His debut solo project, “Smell Smoke?” features production by J.Rawls and Joc Max as well as his own, and is available in stores around the world as well as on iTunes. His first solo project on Melting Pot Music was the “Closer Love EP”.

Just recently DJ Day and Miles Bonny released their new collaboration project “Instant Saadiq” (MPM080), a tribute EP that features three songs from Raphael Saadiq’s “Instant Vintage” album classic getting the Day X Miles treatment. “Still Miles (Ray)” and the epic intro jam “Skyy, Can You Feel Me” have been championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Lefto and Cosmo Baker to name a few.
