Red Bull DJ Master – EDMC Edition (brought to you by Antak entertainment and State In The Real,) is now only 2 days away! The second DJ that we have in the mix is:
SITR: How’d you get involved with DJing, or music in general?
Mike: I started with Daft Punk in elementary school before the turn of the millennium. From there it I got into trance from a duo named “TranceControl” but that lead me to the original Tiesto stuff and the other big name trance DJs at the time. Early 2000’s I bough my first turntables and has progressed from there.
SITR: Do you have anything in store that you think will help you win the title of DJ Master?
Mike: My mixing style is usually really fast. When I have more than 2 turntables available I enjoy pushing my limits with how many songs I can mix together or double drop and then triple build or whatever. I’m not sure what else I’ve got going for me, but I won last year’s DJ competition at Indigo, so I hope to do it again.
SITR: What is your preferred genre to spin?
Mike: I prefer spinning Hardcore (and old Happy Hardcore) with Drum and Bass. I also enjoy mixing jungle and rave breaks too. But I’ll be spinning EDM for the most part at the battle.
SITR: What is your favorite type of show to play? Club? House Party?
Mike: I spin a lot on The Lion FM, but I really love playing house parties.
SITR: What do you foresee for the future of your own music?
Mike: I make music just for fun; however, I would like to start sounding more professional. My plan is to buy some proper VSTs and Monitors soon which is currently my bottleneck in my production quality.
