Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Mike Torres, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY has been into music since he can remember. As a NewYorican, he was raised listening to Salsa, Disco, Motown and Funk. His father played percussion and was always listening to the beat!! Once he was older, he eventually branched out into Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop, House, Freestyle, and anything that sounded good. Music is a feeling. Whether you are from NY, the Caribbean, Europe...wherever you are from, if the beat moves you, than it is good!! House music (ALL types) is my favorite type of music. The energy, the rhythm, the beats!!! move me! But I enjoy playing open format because it lets me enjoy the sounds of the world that move people. DJing for over 25 years, I have learned to appreciate all types of music and enjoy playing music that move people.
In my career, I have been able to play in venues around NY such as Duvet, Taj, Skyline, High Bar, Katra, Agozar, Moka Lounge, G&G, Vetro to name a few. My goal as a DJ is to make people feel the music the way I do when I hear a beat. If I do that every time I'm out, than to me, I am successful!!!
