Mike is the presenter, producer and voice of the long running podcast Mantis Radio as well as the dominant force behind the acclaimed Darkfloor. He is a man of many talents.
With a penchant for the darker, twisted side of techno, electro, D&B and other grimace-inducing bass heavy noise, Mike has been at the cutting edge of techno for years. Culminating in the emergence of record label Darkfloor Sound – pushing the work of Ontal, David Meiser, Phat Chex, Savagen, Lag + Forest People, Vacated, Matt TdK, Ruins, Savier and Herd. Expanding and bridging the sounds he champions on Mantis Radio.
His DJ sets present a varied selection, taking in sharp grime, industrial noise, rich and relentless bass weight, downbeat drone and an uncompromising techno backbone you can rely on. Over the years he has shared the stage alongside Svreca, Ancient Methods, Perc, Kamikaze Space Programme, Shelley Parker, Inigo Kennedy, Voidloss, P-Hocto, Coefficient, Jerome Hill, C Mantle and many others.
