Starting out behind two turntables at the age of 14, Michael Davies aka Miché, is a serial crate digger and DJ playing clubs and festivals all across the UK. As a radio broadcaster he hosts his radio show the Four Corners Record Club every fourth tuesday of the month, 12 noon-2pm on Bloop, a club night curator he hosts his monthly night in shoreditch “an evening with Miché” from the Horse and Groom, and a monthly residency at the illustrious Spiritland in Kings Cross. From the radio show to the club, Miché is always illustrating his eclectic and vibrant tastes of music from around the globe – From Sun Ra to Four Tet, Patrice Rushen to Idris Muhammad – if it’s exciting and you can dance to it, it’s played!
Starting on internet radio aged 15, his shows consisted of deep and funky house, every Saturday morning on local station DJ Lounge. The shows mainly consisted of playing 6/7 Kerri Chandler tracks at a time, and not the tidiest of mixes, but this gave him an early platform to present and learn his skills, whilst having experienced DJ’s around him to learn from.
He stepped away from DJ’ing and broadcasting between the ages 17 and 21 and began to work in recording studios across the UK, while recording and producing other musicians himself in his spare moments. With time spent with Flood at Assault and Battery and other Miloco Studios in London to shadowing Phill Brown for periods. He also expanded on his production skills and knowledge at other studios such as the Ranch in Southampton and Outhouse in Reading.
In 2015, aged 22 he started to broadcast on the radio with the yougoodthing show on afro*disiac, which later became the lo key takeover, and in July 2017 he began his Four Corners Record Club show which was quickly snapped up by Bloop in London. The Four Corners Record Club is now broadcast worldwide every month, the first monday of the month from 10am to 12noon. Miché also appeared on Kiosk Radio in Brussels in December of 2017.
As far as club DJing goes, Miché has seen a rise in demand for his work in the past year with ample gigs across the UK – The Rainbow Venues in Birmingham, Aespia Festival playing parties for Bestival being personal highlights. The demand shows no sign of slowing up with his afternoons at Spiritland in Kings Cross leading to a monthly residency and his club night simply titled “an evening with Miché” also ran monthly in Shoreditch. He also runs nights in his hometown with the other disk jocks from the lo key collective, a group started with like minded selectors. The skills and knowledge of production and mixing he gained in his earlier career have been used to release his debut ep “closer”, released in April 2018.
