A man once said “if you can dream it, you can do it”, and that is exactly the case for this rising star. Mikey Puerari, or better known as "Mikey P", is no stranger to dance music. Being born and raised in New Jersey, dance music has always been one of Mike's passions, especially the club scene. At the young age of 12, Mike discovered his passion for the nightlife and the art of DJing.
Self-taught, he started mixing music on a friend's CD players and computer programs, learning the basics of mixing which seamlessly came naturally. At the age of 15, Mikey purchased his first pair of CDJs and dedicated each and every day to perfect his skills. He started to play small events such as birthday parties, house parties, school dances and realized this was something he wanted to take to the next level. Countless hours were spent in the bedroom preparing for his next moves. After getting a hold of Cubase studio, Mikey began preparing mashups and bootleg remixes of his favorite tracks, which quickly gained the support and attention of local DJs in the state. By 17, Mikey was featured as a top-selling artist on the famous Crooklyn Clan’s “Crack4DJs” where all of his remixes and mashups have been sold to DJ's worldwide. Early support of his remixes have been supported by DJ's including Pauly D, and radio play on New York's "92.3 NOW Saturday Night Dance Factory" and 103.5 KTU FM monthly.
Now at 20, Mikey has even bigger dreams to fulfill. He has already played at venues such as Pacha NYC, 4sixty6, & Joey Harrison's Surf Club. He has held residencies at Karma (as seen on MTV's "Jersey Shore"), Club Merge in Seaside Heights, & Bliss Lounge, to name a few. Mikey also won the Beta Break contest, securing himself a headlining spot at Electric Adventure at Six Flags in New Jersey. He has played alongside international artists such as LMFAO, and shared the decks with electronic dance music talents Afrojack, Bobby Burns, R3hab, MAKJ, Zedd, Dyro, Danny Avila, Morgan Page, and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano to name a few. He has done several guest mixes for several radio shows, including Club Radio FG USA. It is no question this upcoming talent is a master of his craft. While staying busy fine-tuning the “Mikey P” sound in the studio, and with upcoming original releases and remixes on Beatport, the future looks promising for this young star. With hard work, incredibly strong passion, and unprecedented ability, Mikey has already paved the way to a long career far more than he could ever imagine.
