Hailing from New Jersey, Mike has 20 years of making music and more than 40 No. 1 tracks on
the Billboard dance/club charts to his name. Working with Top 40, house and Euro styles, Mike

Mike fell in love with the clubs as a teen. By the age of 16 he was already commanding
attention, DJing house parties and teen clubs. He worked his connections to get his mix tapes to
the owners of all the hot night spots. Mike broke through when he decided to mix “Stranger in
My House,” by then unknown R&B artist Tamia. The track became an instant radio and club hit in 2001, becoming the No. 1 played song on rhythm stations in the U.S.
In 2009 he dropped what is widely considered his catchiest remix to date, Beyonce Knowles’ “Sweet Dreams,” which was catapulted to No. 1 on the Billboard charts. More No. 1 hits followed with Whitney Houston’s “Try It On My Own,” Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” and Jennifer Green’s “How Can I Be Falling” – a song he co-wrote and produced. Two of his dance-mix CDs – Trance Nation America Three and Webster Hall Dance Volume 6 – landed on Billboard’s Top 20 chart. His album ThriveMix01 hit No. 5 and has sold more than 75,000 units to date.
With two record labels (Funk Generation Music and Global Groove Entertainment) and a remix radio show in the U.S., Mike shows no signs of slowing down, and more projects await. Up next is an exciting collaboration with Canadian singer Gali, among other European and North American releases under Ryal Music.
