Miles_Gurtu is the fourth studio album by Robert Miles, the second he independently recorded and produced. The record was released on February 10, 2004. Robert Miles and Indian jazz percussionist Trilok Gurtu met while recording Miles's last solo album, Organik, where Gurtu played percussion on three of the tracks.[3] The result of the current collaboration is a mix of both musicians' very disparate styles. Miles_Gurtu expanded Robert Miles's "new style" started in Organik (2001), this time in a much more jazzy way.
