When I started playing house & garage in 1994 my DJ name was Mike ‘Da Bass’ Darby due to my love for the bassline and how my mixes sounded. The ‘Mission’ nickname came from being so meticulous and tenacious during my mixing similar to a soldier on a mission! I often heard “Mike your so on a mission when you’re in the mix mate” so ‘Mike Mission’ came so naturally from then on! The majority of my mixes are of the oldskool flavour and filled with pure non-stop club bangers. When I’m on the floor in the club I want the DJ to surprise me and sustain that anticipation! Remixes are a way to showcase production skills and passion.
Musical inspiration: OldSkool UK Garage, Deep & Soulful House.
I am a Qualified Sound Engineer, Producer, DJ and Father!
Peace always...Mission accomplished!
