BIO

Ranging from down tempo surreal trance to heavy dancefloor heat; The Sk4r3crow has become a major underground presence in the Oregon EDM scene. His remixes have been noted by Royal Bass Records (Britain UK), Cubic Records (Britain UK), IlluminatiDubstep (Fiji), MCT Music Group (US), Vacant Lot Entertainment (Los Angeles US), State Records (Manchester UK), Rimoshee Production (Slovakia), Fresh Artistes (Sheffield UK), Satellite Recordings (New York US), Slammin Vinyl (London UK), BGM Records (US), SmoothProductionz (Dallas US), and Modified Noise (Los Angeles US). The Sk4r3crow is also currently the #2 local artist on Reverbnation.

Mike was already established in underground music before donning a mask and becoming The Sk4r3crow. When he bought his first set of vinyl turntables he was playing drums and percussion for The State Of Jefferson. After an amicable parting of ways, he went on to play bass and production for the punk rock group Burning Britches. All the while he was honing his EDM skills as a side project. After the punk group decided to split up, Mike was able to work solely on all types of music production. In a world now dominated by computers, he opted for an “old school” approach to making music: utilizing synthesizers, samplers, and turntables. Being a multi-instumentalist, he was able to carve out his own unique styling whereas many producers simply buy beats and samples online. After a few years, his friends began pushing for him to start playing live.

And so, The Sk4r3crow was born! Since breaking onto the scene in 2011, The Sk4r3crow has played everything from small, intimate private sessions, to full on all-night EDM massives. His experience with electronic dance music combined with over 12 years of traditional group projects has given him a unique ability to “read” a crowd. This experience has also provided an excellent circumventual view of events. As a promoter with Full Frequency Experience, he’s extremely knowledgeable of all things event related. With The Skr43crow, you get so much more than just another d.j.
