Mike Conradi is a legend-in-the-making in Toronto’s electronic music scene. The experienced DJ has been moving crowds for over a decade and has recently been bitten by the “production” bug. If you’ve been clubbing in Southern Ontario during the past few years you’ve no doubt danced to the rhythms of Mike Conradi at places like Nocturne, 24 Lounge, After 8 Lounge, Festivals like WEMF, or the old mainstays like Circa, The Docks and System Soundbar just to name a few….
Citing Deko-ze as an inspirational force, “from his mixing to his track selection & programming [Deko-ze] is in a league of his own,” Conradi’s no slouch behind the decks either.
Using 3 CDJs, Mike’s signature sound is best summed up as a Techno-driven hybrid of Electro, House, and Funk overlaid with samples and effects. More to the point, the man has the skills to pay the bills.
As a producer, Mike has a number of remixes already under his belt and has releases forthcoming on labels such as Champion Beats, Fine Grind Audio, Don’t Look Productions among others. You may also have caught Mike performing as one half of the DJ/Production duo known as Rex Manning with Christian Poulsen of HUGSNOTDRUGS.
I was fortunate to have Toronto area DJ/Producer Mike Conradi agree to submit an exclusive mix for In My Room last week. Quite frankly, the mix couldn’t have come at a better time as I was hit with a nasty cold-flu thing and could barely even get my ass to the studio to load it up and press play.
If you like what you hear below, you can catch the man live here:
