Performer, Producer & Remixer
(France / Italia)

Main Label: PHYSICAL RECORDS

Addicted to music since childhood, it was in 1993 that the teenage Michael a.k.a Mik izif got his first set of decks. whilst heavily into detroit techno and chicago house at first, Mik also had tendencies for Acid House with his hysterical and minimal groove, (Dj Pierre, Jeff Mills, Mad Mike, Underground Resistance, Plastikman, etc...) Later arrived the London wave with its acid techno sound, when Mik discovered the TB303. It's phat sound would seduce him and become his accomplice in the years to come.

He began his career at age 15 as a radio DJ and playing in mini Raves in his area, he made also some deejay jobs in clubs... But it was in the middle of 90s whilst discovering underground and commercial raves with IZIF sound system & Sono Pirate (as a founder member) that he started his first live sets. Mik created his own label IZIF Records and produced his first album in 1999 with artists from his crew.

In 2003 one of Mik's Acid techno tracks appeared on the 12 inch under a independent label from St Etienne/France ''Anarcore production''.

 

Followed by more of 12''s and digital on various independant labels like Physical Records, Black Pearl Music, Invisibles (Chicago), I.O.T, Antefutura, Toolbox, Fantomatik, No Sense Of Place, Advise, ODN, Oton, Chapati Express, O'Clock, Re:Beat, Junky Robot, Hydrophonic, Transelucid and more to come.

From then on, he played at numerous venues around Europe and as far as Canada. These days Mik mostly alternates between Italy and France, playing Raves, clubs and Festies, allowing him to connect with an ever wider audience. His style of mix and live sets are diverse, and Mik knows how to adapt the music to please a crowd. Although he has experimented with an eclectic mix of styles, Mik always remained faithful to the music he began with. Today his production include Techno, Minimal, Tribal and Electro style. His Mix Live sets are more heavy Techno, with strong beats and fat synth. The tunes are ours, to savour on the dance-floor.

Together with his sidekick Midwooder on their Physical Records label, he worked with artists like Dolby D, D'Jamency, Nicolas Cuer, Flex etc etc... Future collaborations will see the day with (among others) Angy Kore...

The rest in music.
