MIKE DELINQUENT: FRIDAY, 6TH SEPTEMBER 7 - 11PM
Mike Delinquent is into his 12th year in the music industry, having been asked by the Arts Council to quit his job in a phone shop to make music professionally full time. This ended up being a life changing move for Mike, who followed his music dream initially by co-founding production act Delinquent.
Following countless remixes, notably Usher (Caught Up), Ciara (1,2 Step) Natasha Bedingfield (Single), Taio Cruz (Come on Girl) and a top 20 Uk chart hit with “My Destiny” feat Kcat, Mike decided to go solo and produce under the name Mike Delinquent Project in 2010.
Having already played a major part innovating the ‘bassline’ sound which took the UK by storm between 2003 and 2008, Mike began offering his own take on the classic UK Garage sound, beginning with a remix of DJ Fresh’s “Gold Dust”. However, it was the remix of Wretch 32’s “Traktor” in late 2010 which received the plaudits from industry peers & djs alike.
Upon spinning various MDP remixes on her Radio 1 show, Annie Mac mentioned Mike had been ‘bringing garage back’ and consequently Mike had re-ignited his reputation as one of the industry’s most sought after remixers.
