Biography

With over 15 years playing at clubs from London to LA, Miami to Sweden and Shanghai to Ibiza, Mikey Gallagher has made his career as a world class DJ.

What sets him apart from everyone else, is his ability to work the crowd. This kind of talent you cant learn overnight. It comes from a vast knowledge of music put together with the mind of a producer and then practiced over thousands of nights in the field.

Its this experience which enables him to make good records sound better, great records sound incredible, and everything he plays into his own.

Drawing from sexy funked-up beats, twisted electro and thumping progressive basslines, its his understanding of timing and momentum in the mix that tease the crowd into a higher state, en-trancing the dancefloor, before unleashing a record that will have people not just leaping up and down, but howling with emotion.

From humble beginnings playing to the aprs ski crowds in Val Disere back in the early 90s, Mikey soon progressed to playing big parties for the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Sofia Coppola.

This was backed up with a heavy schedule of nights on the UK Club scene for the likes of Miss Moneypennies, Ministry Of Sound, The Egg and The Cross.

His affiliation with Ministry of Sound went further with a residency on the Ministry of Sound’s Worldwide Radio Show The Ministry Dance Party for 4 Years – his mixes lifting thousands of clubbers across the globe as they listened to his sets. He was also resident DJ on nationwide tours for Ministry Of Sound for their worldwide selling albums Annual and Clubbers Guide and co-hosted the popular MOS Express radio show on Ministry Of Sound Radio for 5 years.

As a producer, Mikey has released tracks under many guises including: Blue Harvest, A Man Possessed, Munchman, Flashback and indeed Mikey Gallagher. His tracks have included a collaboration with US legend Robbie Rivera Club Wash (Wakko), The famous Guinness Surfer ad sampling Black and White (Slinky), USA Club Anthem Plan B (Jellybean) and the Re-fix of Mory Kante Yeke Yeke 2006.

He also co-produced and co-wrote the Single Felon – Get Out which hit the UK chart and topped the Club Chart, and his remixes include tracks for Stonebridge, Melle Mel, Mory Kante and labels Serious, Slinky, Delirious and Universal.

Mikey now lives and DJs in LA and frequently tours overseas, most recently with a 3 month nationwide tour of China.

He has a new weekly radio show Shanghai Sessions and is currently working on further studio projects.
