SUK062 | Mount Mike – Headlights11th March 2018
With a fascination for music, dance, and rhythm from a young age, it took Mike a few years of stealing his mother’s crockery and wooden spoons and using them to make 4 to the floor dance floor tuna before he persuaded his parents to buy him a drum kit. He played his drum kit day and night, exploring all manner of eastern time signatures and Afro-beat grooves, absorbing sounds from wherever his dial up internet would allow. He began to compose little songets, and riffage, which he recorded in his bedroom using pre-historic software from the local library. Thus began his interest in computer music and audio production. His ears began to pine for the thumping kick drums he overheard on his sister’s Ministry of Sound Annual CD, and upon delving into what exactly made this enticing noise, he discovered Ableton Live. Now based in Melbourne, Mount Mike has been hard at work for a number of years honing his skills as a producer, and is ready to reveal what he has been working on.
