Mike G

MIKEG2014Press

Steeped in millennial culture and bred on East Coast club sounds, Austin-based DJ/producer Mike G draws lines between the Internet, insular regional scenes and the ears of young listeners. It would be impossible to place Mike, born in Los Angeles, in any particular genre or sub-genre, his music instead evoking everything you’d want from the “bass” music genre without any of its pedantic proclivities.

You know him via releases on Car Crash Set, Main Course, Paradisiaca, Freshmore, and Soukouch Ethnik, just to name a few. However, Mike’s remixes, bootlegs and one-offs might just have garnered him even more attention. Maybe you heard his “Code Switch”/Divoli Severe edit on the Night Slugs Boiler Room or saw his SPF666 – “Scorpion Cache” remix burning up the web. It might have been his collaboration with Falcons that caught your eye, released with support from the wide-gazing Mad Decent, along with multiple plays on BBC Radio 1. A well sought collaborator, Mike has also gained recognition for his collaborations with the late DJ Rashad, SPF666, Krueger, and Black Majick. Gathering up breakbeats, horn stabs and volatile ballroom samples from across the avant-garde of yore, Mike has developed a sound in both his DJing and production that is always accessible, but never pandering. It’s as implacable as it is fun, fully existing in the prosperous nether-region of the Internet, without crossing over into self-indulgent fapping.

In a short few years Mike’s original productions, remixes, and bootlegs have been supported in live sets and on radio from the likes of Bok Bok, Brenmar, DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn Toddla T, B Traits, Dubbel Dutch, Total Freedom, Girl Unit, Diplo, Rabit, MikeQ, Neana, Druid Cloak, Slick Shoota and many more. He is also one half of a collaborative effort with Broadway Slim’s Riot Earp and has been the host of a weekly radio show on RWDFM for almost 3 years but is now currently hosting his show on SUBFM, every other Wednesday 7-9PM E / 4-6PM P / 12-2AM GMT.
