London based DJ Mike is a Greek-Colombian selector who started collecting records since a young age. His music knowledge across a number of genres and exquisite track selection has helped him build a reputation for rocking crowds across UK and overseas, making him a sought after and reliable DJ for private events, parties and weddings,
Having by now worked within the music industry for over 10 years, DJ Mike frequently performs in Ibiza, European festivals, South America, Athens and Prague.

Born into the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the French capital and with parents of Ugandan descent, Mr Boogie was never going to be the type of person who just played any old record. Having spent his formative years split between Paris and West Africa, in his teens he made the move to the UK where he set about putting his burgeoning love for music to good use. A keen traveller with a love for a dusty basement or two, Mr Boogie took full advantage of frequent stopovers in cities such as New York, Havana and Buenos Aires to dig deep into the vast history of Latin American music and beyond.
As his record collection grew, bustling now with killer selections from a wider catalogue of classic Jazz, Funk, Soul, Boogie and Tropical rhythms, he sought to perfect his craft in public, and soon found himself spinning weekly at the much-loved Tuesday Salsa sessions at Shaftesbury Avenue’s Bar Rumba.
With such an amiable personality and a bag full of nice tunes, his name is never too far away from other DJ bills where he has played special guest and resident slots in and around London and overseas, as well as major functions such as the London Jazz Festival, the London Latin American Film Festival, the UK film premiere for Soul Power, BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend and more recently, BST Hyde Park Festival.
