Miles Medina: New Fame, New Track

Posted by on February 10, 2014


Miles Medina, the 26-year-old breakout artist from the San Francisco-Bay Area gave us some time on the phone the other day to talk about his career so far, what’s going on now, and what we can look for in the future.

Following a burst of fame after the release of his “My Neck My Back” remix, Miles had artists all over the map throwing down his track. He even went on to describe it as a “staple” in Lil Jon’s set for a while, and that it was rumored EDM legend Diplo had spun it a few times. Check out the banger for yourself:

Just a couple of months later, Miles would release another hard-hitting remix of Rich Boy’s “Throw Some D’s,” gaining him even more visibility. Shortly after this, he signed on to Monster Products as an official artist, just in time to close out 2013. Since then, he’s performed in a variety of venues, such as the Soundscape Music Festival in Tahoe, playing alongside the likes of ETC!ETC!, DJ Chuckie, Borgore, and Carnage. His performing experience spans beyond his solo career, however, doing shows with Mad Decent-featured and SF-native producer Panic City under the alias URFRIENDS. When asked how his time in the limelight will affect the duo, Miles commented that he and Panic City have “told each other that they are never going to stop doing URFIRENDS,” and “it’s never going to fall apart.”

Just this past week, Miles released a new track that encompasses a variety of  genres, creating a fully developed sound that will no doubt go off in the club. The remix of Gorilla Zoe’s “Hood N***a” is up for free download on Miles’ Facebook page (and it’s definitely worth it if you’re looking to turn up a little bit). We asked Medina what we could look for in the coming months, and he said he plans to release tracks at least once or twice per month, and to look out for some “big,” unnamed collaborations. Don’t forget to give Miles a follow on his social media outlets: you won’t be disappointed.
