Miguel Migss musical foundation was built on African and Jamaican rhythms. As an 18-year-old guitarist in a world-music-influenced band in Santa Cruz, California, he absorbed the sounds of soul, reggae, and electronica. Now Migs is a hugely popular DJ and producer who specializes in whats known as deep house. Drawing inspiration from his musical roots, he promises a unique spin on the typical DJ-behind-the-turntables show that Miamians have come to expect. Thats because Migs comes with an eight-piece band. Hes rolling across the country for the release of his sophomore album, Those Things, and tonight Michael Capponi and the good folks at Aquabooty are bringing the San Francisco native to perform at Mansion. With special DJ sets by Marques Wyatt and Julius Papp, party people will be breaking it down all night long.
The event is presented by Salted Music, the independent record label Migs founded in 2004. The soul-quakin, booty-shakin groove begins at 11:00 p.m. and wont stop till 5:00 a.m. Tickets cost $30. Call 305-531-5535, or visit www.theopiumgroup.com.
