Our Interview With Mikey Rotten

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


I’m Mikey Rotten a artist / rapper from Louisiana, USA raised in Indianapolis Indiana and now resides in Los Angeles, CA. I do Punk Rock influenced music from rock to rap infusing the metal and punk rock energies and essences.


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


Growing up i found my self in the underground band scene being influenced by bands from Senses Fail to Minor Threat to XLifeRuinerX. As i got older i found more influence in the Experimental beat music, Bass Music, and HipHop scene and found my self getting more and more into music production and Djing. In my more recent years i found my self getting into the new underground soundcloud rap music such as $uicideboy$, Bones, Xavier Wulf ,Eddy Baker, and Chris Travis that carried the same energies as the band music i grew up on… I was inspired.


What´s new right now?


Currently i just dropped a new project called “Rot In Pleasure” (RIP) with Featured from Eddy Baker and have followed up with a collaboration track with Xxaniii and EmptyKoffin. Im Currently working on a slightly Rap influenced Punk Rock album with the guitarist from the Hardcore Punk band Chemical X.
