DJ Miagi, is an electronic musician currently living in NYC borough of Brooklyn. Miagi started DJ'ing under obscure pseudonyms in the 1990's at warehouse raves, outdoor festivals, and club events across the United States. It was in the early 00's that he accepted his stage name DJ Miagi, which spawns from a childhood nickname, at the advice of peers to keep track of his career.
As a performer, Miagi is a turntablist at heart. In his earlier days of electronic music culture Miagi mixed a collection of house music on top of jungle and drum & bass tracks. The sound evolved into Miagi's signature sound of serialism and it's interwoven chemistry with traditional beat matching. He has described this as finding rhythm within and embracing the greatest fear of DJ's, the “trainwreck”. Live turntablism performances feature a mixture of progressive house, jungle, and electro house music mixed between up to three turntables.
