Miguel Migs

Friday, April 3

Deep house high priest Miguel Migs occupies a position in electronica somewhere between France’s Bob Sinclar and fellow San Franciscan (by way of Las Vegas) Halo. Even though he’s done remixes for A-listers such as Macy Gray, Lionel Ritchie, and Britney Spears, Migs remains a DJ’s DJ, maintaining both a heavy tour schedule, especially on the West Coast, and a firm presence in the crates (or, as is more likely, hard drives) of jocks all over the place. What’s particularly refreshing about Migs’ live sets is that he doesn’t focus on drawing clubbers to the dance floor at the peril of playing a good, soulful groove. In that regard, his ability to contour a night around physical movement as much as emotional appeal makes him shine, even if it’s not as bright as many of his contemporaries.
