DJ Mike Castillo

Austin, United States

Like a relentless drug addiction, this is a hobby that has lasted way too long. I literally started screwing with people's ears in 1991 with a shitty Radio Shack Realistic mixer and 2 mismatched, belt-driven, hand-me-down turntables. Over the years, I've spun vinyl in multiple nightclubs... mostly in Austin, but occasionally in other places, including Los Angeles. I live in the nightlife shadows, mixing and performing pretty much anonymously for over 20 years! I neither seek recognition, nor want it. I prefer to let my mixes do the talking... and I've mixed it all at one time or another -- 70's, 80', 90's, 00's... funk, disco, new wave, electro funk, rap, hip-hop, house, techno, trance, rave and whatever else they label music with these days. Nevertheless, here I am... never having learned a thing except that the music just won't stop.
