Mike Smith aka Balearic Mike is one of the world's more unsung DJ Heroes, but of late his praises seem to be getting sung well beyond his native Manchester. A long time buyer at Vinyl Exchange, Mike has always gone his own way and dug deep (a common theme here), any one who has listened to his Cosmic Alphonsus series, or his Originals comp (done with Moonboots) knows the deep water he swims in. Mike has played at Electric Chair, Horse Meat Disco, Pacha and Space in Ibiza, with me in NYC and at numerous spots worldwide. He does the Estrellas parties with Jan Hammered on the reg, he also co-runs the Fascinating Rhythms inprint with Steve Terry.
Low key, far out and on point, we are happy to have MIke join this series. For all things Mike check here: http://www.discogs.com/artist/Balearic+Mike
note: Mike's set is entirely 45's, and in solidarity - with the exception of some newer jams so is mine (about 70%). Size matters! enjoy! Our next podcast will mark 1 year for Disquestown my thanks to all who have joined on this ride, more treats in store! dk
