Mickey is not a pioneer of any Disco, Hip Hop, House or Techno scene. He never saw Larry Levan spin at the Paradise Garage. He never went to the Loft to jam with David Mancuso or the Gallery to see Nicky Siano nor did he jack to what Ron Hardy was playing at the Music Box. He's never even been to Detroit! In fact, you've probably only heard of Mickey (or heard him play) if you've seen him DJ in Brooklyn, Manhattan or London.
An American born DJ of Latin American descent, Mickey was born in Chicago, IL in 1978 to an Ecuadorean woman & Cuban man. The music Mickey heard growing up ranged from Donna Summers, Jackson 5, Michael Jackson & James Brown to Celia Cruz & Beny More.
