Mike has used Live for every project since 2005. He has co-written with The Presets, performed on records by The Avalanches, and remixed a host of chart-topping Australian bands. His knowledge of Ableton Live has taken him to festivals around the world including Glastonbury (UK), Fuji Rock (JP) and Rock Werchter (BE). He has also helmed a critical DJ residency at Melbourne’s infamous Revolver since 2010. 

Mike completed his PhD in Fine Arts & Music at The University of Melbourne in 2022, and published his first peer-reviewed paper—on the impact of 21st century performance technology on the production and performance of EDM—in early 2023.
