This well-known DJ will bring his hip-hop sessions to the dancefloor at Sala Apolo
USA Today referred to him as one of the greatest DJs of all time, and the truth is that Mix Master Mike has dedicated his whole life to the turntables, a vocation that emerged at a very young age thanks to his uncle’s record collection and was later reinforced by his discovery of hip-hop, and by his inclination for seemingly impossible scratch routines. Fans and music lovers who wish to discover this iconic DJ now have the chance to catch him live in session at Sala Apolo from 9pm on Monday 15 August.
When you dig into his achievements you find that this musician and cultural agitator was, at the beginning of his career, the first West Coast DJ to win the New Music Seminar DJ Battle for World Supremacy. Later career highlights include the release of the album Bangzilla in 2004 and his contributions to videogames like SSX 1, SSX 2 and Jet Set Radio for Sega Dreamcast. His latest release is titled Napalm Rockets and features a mixture of genres like dubstep and hip-hop: a new sonic landmark that aims to break down the borders between musical labels.
