Night Music

Balearic Mike is the definition of a DJ’s DJ. He lives and breaths music. He would eat it too but he prefers pizza. Having first made his name back in the 90s under the umbrella of the Luv Dup crew in Manchester, Mike has gone on to become a channel for the spirits of Ron Hardy, Larry Levan, Daniele Baldelli and Vangelis. Mike’s knowledge of disco, Italo, Balearic and house is unparalleled but he matches this with an uncanny ability to read a crowd and give em what they want.

"Ten years ago, people just wanted the big club records," Mike is quoted as saying in a recent Guardian article on the Balearic sound, "But kids nowadays who are 20 want to hear bizarre things that aren't getting played on the radio."

Mike’s a regular at the legendary Afficionado night with Moonboots, Afternoon Sessions @ Big Chill Bar, London and ATP in New York, and has guested at Horse Meat Disco, London.

Catch Mike at his residency Night Music with pal Jan @ Dulcimer, Chorlton, Manchester every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.
