Mike Pearl’s career began at very early age. It all started in 1999 when he was residing in Israel and began listening to Electronic music, predominantly trance. Inspired by the depth of sounds and a rhythm that drove people to dance, he began learning the art of DJ-ing and producing music. He attended a musical conservatory where he prided himself with playing the piano for couple of years. It was in this same school in which he got his first gigs playing at school parties and special private events. Being a mere adolescent at the time inhibited his capabilities of spinning in the club scene.
Influenced largely by New Monday, Dave Seaman, PVD, Riva, Pete Tong, Chris Kaiser, Armin, John Digweed, Pink Floyd, The Police, Eric Prydz, etc., Mike Pearl’s personal style has profoundly transformed throughout the years, from uplifting trance to progressive house.
