Mi5an7hropia’s love of music began at a young age when his mother would play him old Motown records. He fell in love with the soulful essence that the artists conveyed.
Inspired by this, he later started his DJ career spinning that same vinyl collection passed down to him from his mother.
As a DJ back in 1994 , he began spinning European Progressive House using the old Motown sounds as vocal transitions to perk up the ears of his crowds. Spinning this genre set him apart from the Philly scene at the time. He also played gigs in Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Rhode Island, and as far away as Montreal, but eventually left the music scene to pursue a career in Telecommunications.
After years of working his “real” job, Mi5 realized he was missing something and decided to get back into spinning again. Making the transition from vinyl to digital things have really began to come alive for MI5.
It has been quite a comeback for MI5, spinning alongside John 00 Fleming,Aly and Fila, Max Graham, Simon Patterson, Jaytech, Cosmic Gate , Sean Tyas, Tom Colontonio, Revolvr, Reid Speed, Midnight Conspiracy, Lance Blaise, Mike Saint-Jules, Zach Roth , Michael Gin, and many more top notch DJs/artists. His versatility is second to none. When asked what his favorite genre is… he usually responds with “What the journey should be heading toward the headliner.” Mi5 believes that opening is truely an art and he takes pride in providing the a truely progression based experience for whomever he is opening
for. If asked to close out a night, or side lining you can see just how much depth he has. Mi5 started spinning around 94 and took a hiatus to pursue another career. After 10 years in hibernation, he decided it was time to bring the journey back to the dancefloors. Ranging from deep house to psy-trance, be on the lookout for the Esscala / East Side Electro resident blasting through multiple cities this year.
