News Update…

I haven’t been doing much gigging over the last year, but that’s not to say I’ve been sitting here inactive to here is a little news update!

I’m now studying Technology of Music and Inside Music back to back with the Open University, so between that and my full time day job there hasn’t been a great deal of time (or energy) for playing out. The release of our Inner City – Good Love remix last year was one of the best things to ever happen to me, so I want to release more, but I want to be able to bring more to the production table so studying seems the way forward. Loving it so far, I can already feel the knowledge I’m gaining having an effect on my DJing and music choices, so hopefully that will be reflected in my podcast!

On the subject of the podcast, I’m absolutely touched by how rapidly my listenership is increasing. I’m now getting about 30,000 plays a month in total across all episodes, and the stats say that a lot of people are coming back again and again! Bearing in mind I was only getting 1000 this time last year that’s a heck of an increase.

As far as DJing out goes, I’m still working with Kidology and Wild Fruit, so keep an eye out for upcoming gigs with them. I’ve been spending an awful lot of time organising my music, and creating ultimate playlists for different genres of house. I’m looking to do much more DJing this year, so I need to get organised to fit it into everything else I have on my plate! I’ll be doing a lot of different mixes to try out new sounds so keep an eye out for something a bit different coming soon. I’ve also been practicing like mad, honing my vinyl skills, and I’m very interested in playing out on that again! There are so many DJs out there now, I figure anything I can do to set myself out from the majority can only be a good thing πŸ™‚

Thanks to everyone for their continued support… Lots more to come in 2012!

Big Room Jan 2012

More ‘Big Room’ action, this time there is a distinct 90s influence to a much of the podcast. I’m back at University now studying Music Technology, I’ll be doing my best to keep on top of the podcast, but apologies in advance if it’s a bit irregular. On the plus side there will be much more coming from me on the production front πŸ™‚

Wild Fruit Image

Very pleased to be featured along side huge names like the Freemasons, Seamus Haji and Norman Cook on the new website! Wild Fruit has been at the forefront of gay clubbing in Brighton for nearly 20 years, attracting some of the biggest DJs and Performers. Very proud to be a part of it!

“Mikalis. DJ, producer, remixer, all round good guy. The type of DJ who gets the clubbers groove, whose take on house ensures the admiration both clubbers and his colleagues. An Aeon wonder Mikalis has Dj’ed as some of the brands finest nights including Wild fruit, Sunday Sundae, Rebel, DTPM Pride, Onyx Pride Gaydar welcome Party, the Red Party, Afrodisiac and Porno. He’s also bagged an impressive residency with Kidology, one of clublands most respected club brands delivering sets of the much loved Mikalis kind at Egg, The Store, Honey Club and at their collaborations with Salvacion Ibiza – Ibiza Republik. Add gigs for Last Night a DJ Saved My Life, Brighton Pride Street Party, DSD, XXL London, Lookbetternaked at Fire, Religion and Gorgeous and you begin to understand why this most sound of DJs is making a real noise on the clubscene.

But his sound ventures aren’t limited to the DJ booth. 2011 saw the release of the critically acclaimed Mark Wilkinson & Mikalis vs. Inner City ‘Good Love’ signed by Kevin Saunderson to KMS in Detroit supported by DJ Chus, Stonebridge, Seamus Haji, Jason Chance and Gaydar Radio and loved by clubbers worldwide. Mikalis. A house music producing star with an ear for the sublime for whom DJing is more than just job. It’s a sound lifestyle we all love hearing.”
