Biography

Miguel Migs (real name Michael Steward, also known by the pseudonym Petalpusher) is a Deep House Disc jockey and producer from San Francisco, California.

Migs began his music career at 18 years old, as a lead guitarist Hermes and songwriter for a Santa Cruz local band called Zion Sounds. The band split up in the mid-1990’s, however Zion Sounds’ and style is said to have been a major influence in Migs’ personal career. After the band dissolved, Miguel Migs went on to explore music production.

Miguel has produced over 100 remixes to date, including remixes for a number of mainstream artists. Such artists include Britney Spears, Macy Gray and Lionel Richie. Migs has been associated with a variety of record labels, most notably Naked Music Recordings.

In 1998 Miguel co-founded the deep house record label Transport Recordings, along with fellow DJ MFR and Naked Music label director Bruno Ybarra. According to a 2004 article by Stephen Thanabalan in DJ Magazine, Migs was credited for his soul-driven vibes and hailed as one of the pioneers of the and revival scene alongside DIMITRI from Paris and Bob Sinclair as a result of his early foray into Deep House in the late 1990s and early 2000s, releasing several highly sought after singles and remixes under the Petalpusher pseudonym. Most recently, in 2005, he founded SALTED MUSIC, a record label under Om Records.
