Steve was born a house baby.....literally!! Chicago Medical Center had a midwife program where the expecting mother could give birth at the home instead of the Chicago Medical Center. He was born 8:45 PM, Nov 17th 1967 to a pair of Belize natives living in Chicago. Both parents loved music in a city that did the same. Steve & his baby sister were sponges to all this ...music going on inside & outside the home.
Steve's interest in music began with vinyl, playing (and scratching) his father's LPs as well as his relatives that resided in The Bronx, Los Angeles, Phoenix & Belize. His parents got him a guitar at 7 & piano lessons at 10. Between catholic school & lessons, he still found time to further explore into the business of records, creating record covers for his many 45s.
Around Whitney Young High School, Miggedy befriended 3 other teen musicians to form Intimacii (misspelled for 'marketing purposes'). Deeply into Prince, House music also began to emerge as well as European pop & Miggedy would take his weekly lunch money & go buy records anywhere they would sell them.
After graduating High school & 6 years in the Army spinning many a barbeque, house party & nightclub, Steve met then-radio personality Cartier (pronounced kar-t-YAY) at the now-defunct Lasalle Club. A chance tape & a contest to be a mixer on WGCI emerged & a week later, Elroy Smith, then-PD of WGCI contacted Miggedy to request his services as a Mixshow DJ for Club 107.5 The rest is history.
While making masterpieces for WGCI, Steve 'Silk' Hurley, Doug Banks and Tom Joyner, Steve was also tapped by Gary Bernstein of SuperRadio Networks to do Old School & New School mixes for the syndicated radio program. As a result, Steve is heard in 30+ radio stations across the country including L.A., Orlando, FL, Raleigh, N.C. & Dallas, TX to name a few. Many record companies rewarded him with plaques from established juggernauts like Bad Boy, Rawkus, La Face, MCA & Def Jam.
Ten years later, he felt he needed a rest. So he moved to New York to focus on his production. After three years of returning home to Chicago to play, Steve packed it up & landed in Hammond, Indiana to do old school mixes for Soul 106.3 Due to downsizing, Miggedy was let go due to a low signal which led to lower ratings. Not slowing down, Steve began studying the art of Stepper's music through his sister & DJs Mellow Khris, Calvin, Raphael, Pierre & Freddie Mack (RIP). Through this observation, Steve began producing Stepper's cuts like "On To Something Good", Step Into The A.M." and "Brazillian Nights" that began a nationwide circulation on the Stepper's set. This has led to two more albums "Classics From The Future Vols. 1 & 2" and P-STRO "Genesis To Exodus".
UPDATE: Steve just finished production of Julie Dexter's latest album 'New Again' on her Ketch A Vibe imprint released September 28 to critical acclaim.
