Detroit Mike is an experienced DJ specializing in underground bass music. Mike is known for having a deep selection of tracks past to brand new, mixing quickly, and keeping a high energy level for partiers on the dancefloor. He began spinning crates of records at parties, raves, and clubs in Michigan and Indiana. By the late 2000s he relocated to Hartford, Connecticut and connected with members of the local scene there. Detroit Mike has developed his style over more than 15 years behind the decks. Starting with a foundation of Drum & Bass and Jungle, Mike continued to grow his selection of bass-heavy beats over the years with Rave, Juke and Footwork styles, mashing it all up with urban sounds of Hip Hop and Reggae.
Upon arriving in Connecticut, Detroit Mike linked up with the Threshold Sound Collective and became a member of the established crew. He later became a resident DJ at the highly successful Dubbage nights going off weekly in Hartford's West End neighborhood for over 3 years straight. He would also perform as a resident at the club nights Reload, Push, Bashment, Secret Service, and Full Circle. In recent years Detroit Mike has continued presenting the newest underground electronic music at many clubs and several festivals across the North East and the World Electronic Music Festival in Canada. He has played in Philadelphia, at Shelter in San Francisco, and Konkrete Jungle in New York. Detroit Mike has recorded several classic mixes, distributed on hundreds of CDs and online. His mixes received thousands of plays and have been featured on the Everyday Junglist Podcast, JungleTrain.net, and Sound Cloud. Presently, Mike serves as a resident DJ at Connecticut monthly Amen, along with veterans Torrential, Mizeyesis, Meszenjah, Gnostic, and Coexist.
