Before it begins, get to know Mike Haddad:
What first drew you into the music?
My first love was always hip hop. My affinity for electronic music only developed in the last 4 years. I was truly drawn to this music once I was discovering atmospheric artists like David August, and also the darker wizards like Dixon. I figured, as a DJ, I’d like to capture at least a little bit of that story telling narrative in any given set.
What has been one of your favorite memories as a DJ?
Some of the best memories I’ve had as a DJ is when I’m given some freedom to set a certain mood. Especially when I’m throwing my own parties, and have control of the entire night; that can make for some special moments.
How would you describe your personal style?
If I had to give a description to my style I would emphasize the desire for groove. Although I love the deep, melodic, and often oriental sounds, all my sets need to resonate a certain moving groove that keeps people dancing.
If there was one thing that you hope your audience experiences when they listen to your music, what would it be?
When playing live, the only thing that matters to me is that people are moving and smiling. To be able to experience the music and choose to dance and smile, is all I can ask for as a DJ. When the time and place is right, I want people to be transported and feel the evolution of the set.
