Mike 2600 is a 17-year veteran DJ, having rocked parties from San Francisco to St. Paul, from Oregon to Osaka. After moving to Minneapolis from St. Louis in 2003, Mike immediately began throwing the "Let's Get Electric" party in First Avenue's V.I.P. room, a monthly excursion into Miami Bass, Southern Bounce, 1980s pop classics, disco, and post-punk. Years later, Mike is still going strong on the turntables throughout the Twin Cities, delivering expertly-mixed montages of new and classic funk, hip hop, disco, and other bass-heavy beats. He also helps organize the worldwide phenomenon Dre Day, an annual celebration of the music and legacy of Dr. Dre, as well as the annual Michael Jackson tribute dance party in First Avenue's mainroom.
Mike's funk-fueled remixes and original productions have been included in sets by world class DJs such as Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ AM, DJ Yoda, Freddy Fresh, Cosmo Baker, and featured on Los Angeles' Indie 103FM. Mike has rocked at parties such as The Rub (NY), The Do-Over (LA), and Pacha Sydney, venues such as The Woods (Seattle) and Bond at Cosmopolitan (Las Vegas) and has shared the stage and opened up for DJs and acts including Atmosphere, DaM FunK, Mixmaster Mike, Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf, Nick Waterhouse, Nadastrom, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Spank Rock, DJ Assault, Tittsworth, Orgone, !!!, Dengue Fever, and Tiesto.
