of Exeter where one night he ended up at the infamous ‘Cavern’ venue and discovered the world of
drum & bass.
Since then Mike hasn’t looked back and started spinning everything under the ‘bass music’ genre,

Over the years Mike has DJed alongside the hottest DJs in that field including, Pendulum, Chase and

numerous large scale events including the Urban Stage at Bournemouth University’s Summer Ball,
We Are You Friends – Block Party and 3rd Birthday, as well as hosting the opening night for the
Animal Windfest on Sandbanks beach in Poole in 2008.
Outside of DJing, Mike works at the forefront of the music world, promoting records to club DJs and
