A North Carolina native and known by his friends as Waffle, Mike moved to Detroit and quickly became immersed in the dance music scene. Not long after being exposed to all the music Detroit had to offer, Mike found his true calling as a DJ. His direction promptly took shape as the combination of southern charm, motor city strife and a background in percussion could only lead to one thing: house music. With his percussion experience and natural rhythm, Mike came to his DJ name naturally. That natural rhythm made his crossover into DJing a smooth one. He began DJing in the summer of 2001 and in only 2 years has become one of Detroits more skilled house DJs.
