DJ Mykael

mykael2Influenced by his mother’s collection of Disco, Classics & Garage in the late 80’s. Mykael started dancing in the mid 90’s and a few years later became a member of the dance crew called Souljerz while living in New Jersey. At that time he was known for being a bboy with power, but loved to dance to house music. It wasn’t until the early 2000’s that he mets another crew – ILL Company, which consisted of house dancers, djs and bboys. Amazed by their style and humbleness, he knew House was HOME! Exploring Raves, Warehouse Parties, Nightclubs, etc., there wasn’t a place you couldn’t find him getting down at and exchanging with others. On his search to learn more, he came across New Jersey based dj’s Esteban, Alex Reque (ILL Company), Justin Imperiale (Cabana Recordings), K-Jazz & Pang-Lo that made his mind expand. Always showing up at their events or receiving new music from them, his passion and love for the music grew even stronger. For him, these brothas help push the House sound in Jersey with “no limits”. With that, he started to branch out even more and discover different producers and djs across the world, Osunlade, DJ Koze, Efdemin, Mike Dehnert, Ron Trent, Dixon, Black Jazz Con., 3Chairs, Motor City Drum, Atjazz, Theo Parrish, just to name a few. With having such a “selective” taste in music and drive to dj, he booked his first gig in 2009 at Sullivan Room NYC. And let me tell you that was a night to remember! Since then, he’s played at venues such as Sapphire Lounge, LPR, Deko Lounge, Gonzalez y Gonzalez, Bar 13, Meridian 23 and dance studios in NYC. If there is one thing I can say about him, he’s always going beyond the boundaries and will challenge you through his style of music. Come Open!
