Miguel Silver is part of the first generation of Argentine djs who produced, generated and actively participated in the formation of an electronic scene in Buenos Aires.

Influenced by Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, already in his teens he started to give the first steps of a long career in music at rock discos. Shortly later his course changed when seduced by Pop, New Wave and Electropop. But it was until 1988 when, infused with Chicago’s Acid House and Detroit’s Techno, he began to outline his musical profile.

Both from behind the trays or by motivating the creation of new spaces underground parties, specialized record stores with the beginning of a new decade Miguel grew in protagonism in the incipient local dance movement. In 1994, together with seven other djs who had similar restlessness, he made up Urban Groove, a group which would take him to the booths of Club Caniche, Fellini, El Dorado and Morocco, until the time came when he founded his own house: the mythical afterhour K- Dos. Likewise, since 1997, Miguel was part of the production of a number of raves in which the first signals of growth of a brand new movement were to be found: the South American version of these parties summoned twenty thousand people.

During those years he made presentations in international events alongside artists such as Kraftwerk, Prodigy, Richie Hawtin, Angel Molina, Woody Mc Bride, DJ Hell. Besides this, it was during this stage of his career that the editions of 3 para el 2000, Distorsion, Shout, Ruido Cero Cero followed, among others, in his discography.

With the arrival of the new millennium and while searching for a more personal path, in 2001 Miguel abandons Urban Groove to join his friend and partner Luis Nieva in the duo project known currently as Spitfire. At the same time he develops his solo career which leads him to presentations in our Capital (he is resident at Kika Club on Fridays) as well as throughout the country, while extending his path to the most mature scenes of Latin America. Regarding this, his relationship with the audience in Brazil must be specially pointed out.

In the last years Miguel has shared booth with international artists such as Ralph Lawson, Oxia and Redanka, and became a feature at Creamfields Buenos Aires, in all its editions.

His promising side as a producer has generated great expectations for the edition in the UK of his She Got Love, a single produced together with the electronic musician Carlos Shaw, to be released shortly with the sign and seal of Silvershaw.
