Addicted to music since childhood, it was in 1993 that the teenage Michael
a.k.a Mik izif got his first set of decks. whilst heavily into detroit techno and
chicago house at first, Mik also had tendencies for Acid House with his
hysterical and minimal groove, (Dj Pierre, Jeff Mills, Mad Mike, Underground
Resistance, Plastikman, etc...) Later arrived the London wave with its acid
techno sound, when Mik discovered the TB303. It's phat sound would seduce
him and become his accomplice in the years to come.
It was in the late of 90s whilst discovering underground and commercial raves
with IZIF sound system (will become Sono Pirate) that he started his first live
sets. Mik created his own label IZIF Records and produced his first album in
1999 with artists from his crew.
In 2003 one of Mik's Acid techno tracks appeared on the 12 inch under a
independant label from St Etienne/France ''Anarcore production''. Followed by
more of 12''s and digital on various independant labels like Physical Records,
Black Pearl Music, Invisibles (Chicago), I.O.T, Anthefutura, Toolbox,
Fantomatik, No Sense Of Place, Oton, Chapati Express, Fresh Pump,
Re:Beat, Junky Robot, Hydrophonic, Transelucid and more to come.
From then on, he played at numerous venues around Europe and as far as
These days Mik mostly alternates between Italy and France, playing Raves,
clubs and Festies, allowing him to connect with an ever wider audience. His
style of mix and live sets are diverse, and Mik knows how to adapt the music
to please a crowd.
Athough he has experimented with an eclectic mix of styles, Mik always
remained faithful to the music he began with.
Today his production include Techno, Minimal, Tribal and Electro style. His Mix
Live sets are more heavy Techno, with strong beats and fat synth. The tunes
are ours, to savour on the dance-floor.
Together with Midwooder on their label Physical Records, he worke with
artists like D'Jamency, Nicolas Cuer, Flex etc etc ... Future collaborations will
emerge soon with Angy Kore and Dolby D.
The rest in music.
