ABOUT US
::: BIO :::

From humble beginnings as a teenager listening for the first time to UK Drum-n-Bass from artists such as Goldie and Metalheadz or the Trip-Hop style of DJ Shadow; eventually the desire to know how these awesome new sounds were being made moved Mike Teez from an intrigued listener to an active participator in the EDM community.
While living in Lake Tahoe, Mike got his first break, when he was offered a residency at Opal Ultra Lounge - the top club in the prestigious Montbleu casino. While developing his style and skills there, Mike opened for such talent as Kaskade, BT, Christopher Lawrence, Donald Glaude, and many others; as well as hosting official after-parties for Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, String Cheese Incident, and others. His passion for music soon began to surpass the options Lake Tahoe presented, however, and he decided to return to Los Angeles to fully pursue what had once been a hobby but had turned into a passion.
Upon his return to Los Angeles, Mike quickly began to make moves upward - a residency at the #1 Thursday night in LA was followed by guest residencies at Vanguard, Avalon, and other top LA nightspots. Alongside his residencies, Mike was soon in high demand for one-offs all over LA. No surprise, considering his production work was being played by talent such as The Crystal Method, Donald Glaude, and DJ Dan at venues ranging all over the country from Burning Man to top Hollywood nightspots to WMC in Miami! He was soon booking shows in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and many other towns across the US. His recent remix of Martin Solveig's smash "Hello" was the top-spun entry for Beatport's remix competition; beating out over 850 other entrants!
Already off to an incredible start in 2011, it seems the sky is the limit for Mike! Backed by an ever-growing circle of fans and driven by his unquenchable desire to expand musical boundaries, Mike brings an energy and excitement to his shows that will rock any crowd!
