Mike Carpenter grew up in the bay area and has been involved in entertainment since a young age.
He began as a hip hop dj at the age 12, and throughout Jr high and high school had hundreds of dj gigs ranging from nightclubs, weddings, private events and school dances. This inspired him to learn to produce music in various bay area studios with local artists.
Between 1995 and 2005 he held various industry positions ranging from Security, Host, Promoter, Club Manager, and Dj, at almost all of SF's most popular venues including City Nights, Sound Factory,1015, DV8, VSF, Big Heart City, 330 Rich, Iron Horse, up and down club, Mission Rock, End up, DNA Lounge ...Ect...
After returning to the SF in 2008 he has been focused on finding and creating and playing good dance music. He plays for the love of music and the opportunity to make people feel what he feels when playing the tracks he selects.
His style is an infusion of Funky, Deep, Latin, Tech, Soulful & Vocal house.
He has been fortunate enough to graced the decks with Dj’s such as Claude Von Stroke, Frankie Feliciano, Lawn Chair Generals, Dj Carlos, David Harness, Halo, Tony Hewitt, Rick Preston, Norman Stradley, & Yogi & Husky Just to name a few….
