Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Mitch, i'm from a city on the west side of Michigan called Holland and am also currently living there. I am an electronic music artists and dj, and have been producing my own music for about the past five years now. I came into music listening to reggae and golden era hip with my father and learning how to play the drums at a young age before learning more instruments. I fell in love with electronic music in 2011 and started making music on my laptop a year later. Im balancing this music making with school right now, but trying to put as much as possible and maybe make this full time in the future.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


in 2011I had no real taste of electronic music accept for datsik, the first dubstep song I ever heard. After attending electric forest that year, my taste expanded into kaskade, 12th planet, skrillex, and Excision, to name a few. As the years went by and i got more into producing, the trap wave hit and I was hooked, thanks to my upbringing seeded in hip hop. Since that I have sunk down into a more niche area of the trap sound, sort of more experimental bass as some would say, with lots of influence from Mr Carmack, Great Dane, Djembah Djambah, and recently medasin and ekali. I try to keep every song fresh, but I have definitely settled into a rather recognizable sound.


What´s new right now?


Right now I just had a release on the label/collective, Samsara, I helped start in Grand Rapids with a select handful of other really talented local artists. This was our third mixtape release as a collective and my song 'Grit' on there is some of the best music i've ever written. No releases are planned as of now, but I'm always creating so keep them ears open! As far as shows go, my collective just locked in a showcase of all of our roster in January at the local spot Grand Rapids.

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


Baauer. He has always stuck to his sound of unique but danceable bass music, using many interesting samples to craft his own style. Also the range of genre he has is really impressive. On top of that I think his visual aesthetic is top notch as well.
