About this Host
Mount Mike is Producer & DJ who hails from Melbourne, Australia and currently resides in Vancouver, Canada. Never wavering in his mission to push song and dance beyond the conventions of genre, Mike’s taste is broad and doesn’t stick to one sound. His music takes on otherworldly tones and textures, bending mood and energy, blending thump and melody. Deep house at the core, his tracks meander through progressive and minimal territory, sometimes even lending from techno. He loves it weird and wonky and is not afraid to blur the boundaries.
His DJ sets have landed him slots at Australian festivals such as Strawberry Fields and Babylon and have also seen him support some of the world’s finest acts including personal favourites such as: Stimming, Frankey & Sandrino and Andreas Henberg. Off the stage his role as host on Premium Tuna – a radio show on Kiss FM dedicated to Australian producers and DJs – and director of Under The Nest Music & Arts Festival – a boutique camping festival run in the Winton Wetlands – has cemented his place in the Melbourne scene as one of their own.
As a producer, Mike enjoys creating a space where organic and synthetic sounds can meet in emotive harmony. Just like his live sets, he doesn’t like colouring inside the lines. His mantra? There’s a rhythm in everything, you just have to listen for it. His mission? To spread connection and dancing through the emotive and sometimes weirder side of house and techno. Signed to Australian label Suckmusic, Mike’s releases have been building momentum with a string of Beatport chartings and Spotify traction. With a number of exciting releases scheduled for the remainder of 2019, Mount Mike is certainly one to watch out for.
