As dance music keeps evolving, Mike Mago is perhaps the best example of how diverse its artists can be. With his feet tucked in both underground house music as well as mainstream sounds, endlessly expanding his musical path, things just keep on getting more interesting for this Dutch DJ/producer/label boss.
"I've always loved the blend of multiple genres like oldschool house music, pop and indie", Mago explains. "On the one side I like what Clean Bandit and Little Dragon do, on the other I'm into classic DJ heroes like Dimitri From Paris and Armand van Helden. But then there's also guys like Oliver Heldens and Michael Calfan, who deliver really strong melodies, while I also appreciate the more groovy stuff from artists like Deetron and Format B. In short, it's the combination of hooks, rhythms and touching vocals that get my motor running."
