Biography

Growing up in Russia, Michael Sky developed a taste for all styles of music – from heavy metal of Metallica and Iron Maiden to classical music of Shostakovich and Bach. He has degree in classical music education in piano and was even scouted for the Russian Philharmony in Moscow, but declined in lieu of immigrating to United States.

After coming to New York in 1994, he was thrown into a different culture of rap and dance. Beginning in 1995, Michael was actively attending dance events in all corners of United States and the world. These events would lay a foundation of his interest in DJing and dance music. After spending almost 2 years training in the technique, he concentrated on melody and telling of the story as art. He made his first public event at a college event in Buffalo NY in 1999. The appearance was such a success, that he was asked to be event resident. With the bi-monthly event on his schedule, Michael can concentrate on music research trying to perfect his djing skills. Being an artist at heart, he concentrates on story telling through music. That does not mean that all his sets are melodic and progressive to the point of falling asleep. He can still drive the hardest dancer to collapse with his escalating trance and beats.

Currently, Michael is concentrating on developing his producing and remixing skills. Most recent appearances included London, Brussels, Moscow and New York.
