DJ Syrus, a.k.a. Mickey has always had a love for music.(fadermasters.com) He’s been back in his hometown of Glendale, California for less than two years and is already becoming a local favorite. Returning from Tokyo, Japan he uses music as a means to express his inner self/emotions. The influence of the Tokyo underground scene has a very big impact on his sets. This very is apparent when listing to his sets. Growing so much in such a little time he has now been Dj’ing for over five years. His adaptability has proven to be valuable time after time.
Syrus has a unique playing style that consists of NRG, Hard Trance, U.K. Hard House, Hard Style and Trance, DJ Syrus tends to drift down towards the Dark-Side of his emotions during sets. His standard sets consist of an hour and fifteen minutes, (this is just a taste of what he has in store) it’s his longer sets that truly exemplify his creativity as a DJ. Looking beyond just matching beats and combining records that play well together, he takes it to another level with that Japanese / Asian twist. His primary goal is to make the audience feel the ultimate experience at a party. He just doesn’t want people to say “that DJ sounds like the rest of them”. He would like people to remember him as “WOW that guy’s not real, he’s a machine! That was the best set I have ever heard”. Perhaps to get the point across, that’s why he started to write my own tracks.
