Atari Teenage Riot
Berlin hardcore dissenters Atari Teenage Riot were among a new generation of German techno artists (also including ATR's Alec Empire, EC80R, Speed Freak, DJ Bleed, etc.) who sought to reconnect music with political radicalism through ever more challenging, experimental hybrids, engaging everything from speed metal and acid to jungle and hardcore punk.
DJ Mighty Mike Saga
Back in 1988, at the age of 11, I first heard Rigor Mortis by A Split Second. Little did I know at the time that a song I heard in my youth on a local Texas college radio station would change my perspective on music forever.
Electronic music then became a driving force in my life. From the raves and clubs I religiously attended in my late teenage years to the parties I promoted and organized in my early 20's, the love of music and the need to share that love with anyone that would listen led to my inevitable career as a DJ.
I started out in late 2002 as an 80's DJ playing and collecting 80's vinyl. I opened up at raves and played at house parties or anywhere that I could have the opportunity to move a crowd. By 2003 I was asked to perform at Philadelphia's infamous Gothic/Industrial fetish event SHOCK THERAPY.
Ever diligent to expand my horizons, I began collecting a variety of electronic styles (ebm, darkwave, terror ebm, synthpop, etc.) Patiently I taught myself the art of beat matching and mixing these forms of music into my sets and by 2005 I was offered a residency at SHOCK THERAPY. Attaining a good reputation and the freedom to express myself creatively I began organizing events fusing EDM commonly played at raves with Gothic/Industrial music. The FULL MOON GATHERING and C.H.U.D. events of late 2005 are still fondly remembered by many as a huge success in bringing people from many musical tastes and backgrounds together in harmony.
Opening new ears to the Gothic/Industrial sound caught the attention of a number of promoters. To my credit and honor I performed at DRACULA'S BALL, the largest Gothic/Industrial event in Philadelphia and usually play weekly at Philly's longest running Gothic/Industrial/80's alternative night NOCTURNE. I am featured in NYC frequently at the SMACK! and BYTE parties, and went on to play the BLACK SUN FESTIVAL II in New Haven Connecticut.
These are merely the highlights. The biggest highlight i have achieved and acomplished is playing at the WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN event in Leipzig Germany with 20,000+ people attending! This is the world's largest Gothic/Industrial event. As a Dj I love what I do and I am completely self promoted. I'm living my dreams of opening minds and bringing the music I love to the masses!
