Emotional, euphoric and thumping rhythms, enveloping melodies, positive and energizing sensorial experience, sounds that inspire “joie de vivre” and happiness, that, in a nutshell, is DJ Mike McCarthy’s music.

Unconditionally passionate about Trance music since the late 90s, DJ Mike McCarthy got behind the turntables only a while ago, but is most certainly destined for greatness, thanks to his passion and determination to playing only the liveliest and most refreshing music there is. “I often used to put a collection of my favourite music on one CD in order to have a personalized compilation album, but they were never mixed. It then occurred to me that I should string all of that music together. That is how I got my start as a DJ.”

Born in 1977 in Sept-Îles, a little town in Canada, DJ Mike McCarthy’s musical tastes grew more refined and specific over the years, with a decidedly strong inclination towards Uplifting Trance, Progressive Trance and Vocal Trance. “These subcategories of Trance music are characterized not only by energetic and mesmerizing rhythms, but also by their very dynamic and invigorating tempos. There is nothing I love more than to bring my listeners to the highest emotional and sentimental state, in order to give them a deep feeling of freedom. I don’t want them to escape reality, but rather to experience an unforgettable form of ecstasy.”

“Seeing people on the dance floor with beaming smiles on their face is, for me, the most incredible experience. To feel all that positive energy around me is a unique and indescribable source of satisfaction. That is what is driving me to continually push the envelope in my quest to become one of the great DJs.”

Since November 2009, he’s now resident DJ on one of the biggest electronic Internet radio station, Sense.FM , hosting Tranceptions, 2nd & 4th thursday of each month.
