MICKEY PEREZ

BIO

Mickey Perez 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. When he moved to Miami in the summer of 1990 those influences would eventually morph into The Beatles, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Gangstarr, Wu-Tang Clan & 2Pac.

In 2002, Mickey moved to New York City to pursue a career in Filmmaking. After working in Reality Television & Advertising as a Producer for 5 years, Mickey became disillusioned with his career path and his passions rapidly turned from Filmmaking, Directing and Editing to learning to DJ full time. His goal was to incorporate all the great Latin & African music from the 60's & 70's into his sets along with the Funk, Soul, Rock & Roll, Disco of that era along with Hip Hop & House. He figures that's what Levan or Hardy woulda done if they were alive and jammin' today.
