Myagi is one of the world’s more accomplished party rockers, expertly blending a mix of party breaks, electro, techno and mash-up and letting it loose on the dance floor.
Constantly playing sold out venues across his native Canada, he also makes a-list stops at top clubs in China, Australia, Korea, the UK, France, Portugal, and many more, spending an average of 6 months a year on the road and playing for crowds ranging from a few hundred to ten thousand.
He is one of Canada’s – and all of breakbeat’s for that matter – most recognized DJs both at home and abroad, with his music garnering support from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Annie Nightingale, Utah Saints, Dub Pistols, Pete Tong, etc., etc… basically anyone who is anyone.
At the same time, he has rocked legendary clubs such as London’s Fabric, Toronto’s Guvernment, San Francisco’s Mighty, Sydney’s Chinese Laundry and Shanghai’s Babyface. His festival and club stops around North America are the stuff of legend.
It’s in the studio however that Myagi has had his most important successes. Selling thousands upon thousands of units, he has had close to 50 odd releases (both originals and remixes) published, including his much-lauded artist album “3 Years Of Sunrise” which got a whopping “4.5 / 5” – and called a masterpiece to boot – in the scene defining publication DJ Mag.
His original material has been remixed by such artists as the Utah Saints (whose “Something Good” re-release was the top played track on BBC One in 2008), Ex-Skint Records heavyweights Cut La Roc and the Lo-Fidelity Allstars, and gods of the underground like Malente, Slyde, Splitloop, Atomic Hooligan, Zero B, and many others.
Myagi himself has been called in to add his remix touch to tracks by such artists as The Crystal Method, Orbital, The Freestylers, Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker, The Dub Pistols, Ursula 1000, Maestro Fresh Wes, Carole Pope and many more. His remix of The Crystal Method’s “High Roller” was one the most popular tracks on the deluxe edition of their seminal album “Vegas,” and was praised by critics as one of standouts of the pack, which included remixes by Paul Oakenfold, Deadmau5, and many more. It was then picked up and used in the 2008 Hollywood blockbuster “Push.”
Myagi’s music has seen play across the board from the mainstream to the underground. His music has been on a wide variety of media, from video games (including multiple sample packs in
Looptastic’s Iphone app) to television shows (including multiple placements on “America’s Next Best Dance Crew”), from underground radio to 70 min showcases on stations like the BBC, JJJ, CBC, RRR, Kiss FM, etc. Dj’s supporting Myagi material include Pete Tong, The Crystal Method, Utah Saints, Plump Djs, Japanese Popstars, The Scumfrog, DJ Dan, etc.
He has been featured / interviewed in many print magazines and newspapers, including Computer Music, DJ Mag, Mixmag, M8, Urb, XLR8R, and dozens of daily and weekly print sources.
2010 saw Myagi expand his focus to provide Myagi-branded expansion packs for various synthesizer companies, as well as the impending launch of – a site dedicated to providing high quality loops for other producers.
