Mikey aka Digital Fist has been an excellent friend of mine for many many years. He is one of the people in my life whom I can count on for non Breakbeat, non judge mental and intelligent adult conversations when I need to have them. I first met Mikey during Soundfeer in Prague and we spent the weekend getting to know each other a lot better.
Since then we have kept in touch and his Alter Ego has been rising through the ranks and realms of Breaks, DnB and Techno in and about the UK. He has a keen ear for his music and by all reports knows how to work a floor with professionalism and skill.
So it is my pleasure to bring to you, or if you have nee heard of him introduce to you my good friend, Dj, and all round legend
Digital Fist has been spinning breakbeat, techno(/tech-house) and drum&bass for approximately 15 years with occasional excursions into Psytrance and more Downtempo meanderings, and has recently got back into production after a 13 year hiatus.
He is currently based in Southampton, UK, having been denied re-entry to the mothership and not yet made it to Germany, having played at clubs across the south coast of England, and a handful of small festivals, most recently Triplicity 2015 in Devon, where he opened the chill stage.
He has also been curating The Precipice, a fortnightly eclectic show on Brap.fm for two and a half years, and has previous featured in a number of guest spots on NSBRadio.co.uk
Specialist subjects include: precision machine funk, driving hypnotic rhythms, and menacing atmospheres.
He cites as primary influences, Orbital, Monolake, Tipper, Ion Driver, Teebee, Ed Rush & Optical, dub as an engineering technique and aesthetic, and the mathematical underpinning of all reality.
Digital Fist also likes nice people, space exploration, and when a plan comes together. And kittens! Oh, they’re so lovely!
