- Home site for Afterglow, a monthly in San Francisco dedicated to the more relaxed and chill side of electronic music.
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Michael was given a front row seat to the world of electronic music at a young age. Having worked in several of the area record stores, including the now defunct yet highly influential Record Time, Michael was lucky enough to have access to the newest and freshest records coming out from the talented artists that Detroit is known for as well as from artists around the world. Cutting his teeth in the Detroit underground, Michael played around Detroit until 2003 when the desire for new surroundings took him west.
Upon arriving in San Francisco, Michael quickly got involved in the San Francisco underground with Nice, a monthly party that along with Jason Kendig, Nikita and Christian Bloch brought a minimal techno style to the city. After that ended, Michael then played random one off events until he formed Fedora with fellow Midwestern transplant Matt Wilder. Together the two have thrown some of the most notorious parties at the legendary underground space, the com# while delivering their distinctive style of jazzy, jacking deep house. In 2009, Michael then joined White Label, a weekly happy hour that together with Michael Kelly brought helped kick off the weekend for San Francisco featuring the newest house and techno. Now Michael finds himself a resident of Listed Productions newest monthly project, Play, held the first Saturday of the month at the notorious End Up.
Currently immersed in the studio, look for new things to come soon.
