From childhood DJ Miguel, or as we’ve come to know him, Mix Master Miguel has always had his sight set on becoming a superior fixture behind the hottest DJ booths. He cultivated his love for music by spinning at local events, parties and for friends before eventually playing in nightlife venues nationwide.
Some of his first musical influences include the likes of Earth Wind & Fire, Journey, Carlos Santana, 2-Pac, Biggie, DJ Shadow, Justin Timberlake and Usher. His playlist stems from Top 40, hip-hop and mash-up tracks. A dedicated student of the DJ art form, one of Mix Master Miguel’s more notable mixes is a touching ode to the legendary Michael Jackson. His Michael Jackson Forever Mix features the late singer’s greatest hits and highlights Miguel’s skills as a prolific turntablist and live performer.
The seasoned Mixmaster has quickly proven himself among industry colleagues and audiences alike. Recently given the moniker, ‘King of Mix’, Miguel is known for his concert-like performances, banging club mixes and ability to excite the crowd. His style draws similar comparison to the likes of DJ Qbert, Ztrip, DJ AM, Scene, Rock-It Scientists, Jazzy Jeff, and Jam Master Jay. His dynamic DJ sets have garnered mention in several publications and blogs.
“Music is my life, and DJing has been my passion since I was eight years old. At this time in my career I feel I am ready for the grandest of stages and premiere events worldwide,” said Mix Master Miguel. “My goal is to pick up the pieces, follow my dreams, and bring back the true energy with my techniques and style. Since DJ AM’s passing in 2009 the market has really slowed down and the respect for DJs has dropped massively.” he adds.
A brief stint at Wild 94.9 later gave him the opportunity to mix for the Hot 97.7 Jamz on Sirius Satellite Radio. The ‘King of Mix’ has now renewed his future goals and plans to continue his quest to becoming the most sought after celebrity DJ’s. In addition, Miguel is currently the resident DJ at Nuhitz Radio and has several upcoming productions in the works.
Currently based in Northern California, Mix Master Miguel is positioned to become the music industry’s top contender behind the decks.
