About Mic Newman:
“He was telling me to dance with the wolves”, Mic muses, chewing on his straw and gazing into the crowd with a discerning eye.
Spending his formative years on an olive grove, many believe Mic Newman's swift rise to tech-house prominence to be more remarkable than the day it rained small fish in Denmark. Despite his simple past, Mic's musical voice is layered with innovation and quirk, culminating in a radical sound, one that stands out from the clichéd noise.
Phrases like ‘technical wizard’ and ‘emphatic attention to detail’ resonate in conversations among his contemporaries, referencing Mic’s production proficiency and favourable reputation among his peers.
Scholars often ruminate that the most powerful confirmation of someone’s creative talent is to have their work published by a credible source. The truth is in the producing, with Mic having been released on labels including: Great Stuff, Get Physical, Dirt Crew, 8 Bit and Vicious Grooves.
Five years ago, Mic set out to create deep and fresh music, inspired by artists like Booka Shade, Erlend Øye, Trentmoller and Matthew Dear. Since, he has had numerous originals released and remixed a host of notable artists, including: Mason, Chicken Lips, Dirty South, and one of his seminal influences, Booka Shade.
Behind the console, Mic engages crowds with bespoke edits for live use and an unfathomable energy that secretes over his listeners - his sets as much a pleasure to watch as to hear.
Innovative, unquestionably talented and attitudinally sound – Mic Newman is one wholesome package soon to be distributed worldwide.
