DJ MIKE WHO –
Mike who was born close to a volcano, he was raised on a healthy diet of Sicilian olives, cheap cordial and tangerines.
Considered the 17th best watchmaker in his rural neighborhood. Mike has since adapted these immense life skills and cosmopolitan upbringing to now be recognized as the king of unnecessary pull-ups and inappropriate music. Championing sounds from all corners of the globe. His skills on the turntables, encyclopedic knowledge and endless crates have allowed him to share the stage, crustless gourmet sandwiches and expensive beer with a host of internationals including Action Bronson, De La soul, Nickodemus, Kero One, Jazzy Jay, The Nextmen, Raashan Ahmad, House Shoes, Africa Hitech, Kurtis Blow, LV, Peanut Butter Wolf, Dj Shortkut, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Dj Kentaro, Smoke DZA, Mr Choc, Rob Swift, Mr Thing, Chris Read, Mystro, and Prince Paul to name a few.
Mike Who has also supported more local and national big wigs across more styles than you have gotten sweaty or chin stroked to, earning both respect and props along the way.
This child of the globe holds down a residency on the wheels of FBi radio’s award winning Stolen Records, where along with brother in arms Shantan Wantan Ichiban they entertain and educate sydney peeps and international listeners on a weekly basis. Mike has also taken out second place in the NSW Rebull Threestyle battle, solidifying his own brand of cross genre party rocking. His unique sets and uncanny ability to read a crowd has seen Mike’s sets melt faces across Sydney and Australia as well as throughout the South American continent. From intimate candlelight bars to peak time festival stages, this happy go lucky chum doesn’t disappoint.
