About Mix Master Mike -

Named as “The World’ s Greatest DJ” by USA today, Mix Master Mike’ s status as a premier, award-winning DJ and producer has allowed him to maintain his rank as an influential musician, and become a household name. Grammy award winner Mix Master Mike’ s many accomplishments include a 3 time consecutive win of the DMC World Title, a win at the 1992 New Music Seminar DJ Battle (where he became the first West Coast DJ to win the title of World Champion) and being inducted into the Rock ‘ n Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 with the Beastie Boys. His skillful, hard-hitting scratch work has rightfully earned him the status of a pioneer in the hip-hop and DJ communities. Recently, Mike has been found opening for the Vancouver Winter Olympics, joining the official Emmy’ s orchestra with the legendary Michael Bearden (Lady Gaga’ s and the late Michael Jackson’ s music director), creating music that has been featured on major television networks (i.e. producing the theme music for Teen Titans Go on Cartoon Network), performing on Yo Gabba Gabba, producing the theme music for the FIFA World Cup, working on Andra Day’ s Grammy nominated album “Cheers to the Fall” and more. In 2016, he was invited to the White House by former President Barack Obama to perform at the Kennedy Center Honors 36th Gala honoring Herbie Hancock. 2017 started off with a bang for Mike, as he is getting ready to launch a stadium tour across the US opening up for Metallica. Mix Master Mike is also trailblazing the VR world with his Virtual Reality project “Magma Chamber” which has been winning awards internationally, including the 2017 VR Fest Award for “Best Animated VR Music Video” and two awards from the Vega Digital Awards. “Magma Chamber” is being recognized as one of the best and most innovative videos in the VR world. As a result of all the attention “Magma Chamber” has received, Sir Richard Branson extended an invitation for Mix Master Mike to attend the Extreme Tech Challenge Awards at the famous Necker Island. From his early days in the Bay Area until now, Mix Master Mike has always been looking for new ways to create art that challenges the status quo, keeping his brand relevant and exciting for older fans and millennials alike.

As ThatKidCam, McCloud released several impressive recordings — some produced by J. Rhodes, and one featuring –topic. His delivery is intense, hyper and unpredictable. Backstage at The Bomb Factory in October, he approached Erykah Badu and free styled a verse for her in front of a very large group of people. Naturally, it was caught on video and tens of thousands of people watched it online. Badu was impressed enough that the two have stayed in touch.

He also found the local hip-hop scene to be cliquish, reminiscent of high school. McCloud was thinking he would rather start his own group than try to fit in with someone else's. For live shows, he started bringing in other performers, most notably vocalist Stanley Francisko, to sing on the hooks, and the Institute production team (JayAnalog and Tomahawk Jonez) to do live DJ sets.
