VOTE FOR MITCH DAVIS HERE
Each year the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs leaves little guesswork. Tiesto wins it 20 times, Armin wins it 15 times.. And other than that, the same few Martin Garrixes switch a few spots among each other.
But this year is different! Online community TWTMEGP vowed to make Mitch Davis number one.
MITCH DAVIS, THE LEGEND.
‘Who Is Mitch Davis’ is a question often asked. Long story short: Mitch is an acclaimed house and techno DJ from the UK with a preference for the deeper sounds.
1988 saw him cutting his teeth on the dancefloors of seminal clubs Shoom, Mud Club, Spectrum, Trip, Future, the Boys Own Parties & High on Hope. Fascinated by this emerging culture which he saw explode, he ventured on a trip to Ibiza’s Amnesia opening night in June 1989 which blew him away & fueled his passion even furthur.
During the 90’s he fully started to DJ, promoting his own nights along with stints on pirate radio. Yet, after purchasing an Akai sampler and an old Atari, he concentrated on making his own sounds.
2007 saw the release of the Resitance EP on Devore which gained excellent support from DJ’s worldwide & a 4/5 review in DJ Mag.
As he saw the whole house music culture explode from the second Summer of Love to the global culture it is today, his open minded approach & knowledge of this music sees him at home producing House, Techno, Electro & Breaks in all their various guises.
Check out Mitch’s brilliant EP on PERC TRAX.
