Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike Strip.
Mike, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started in 2002, when my family bought me my first DJ system. Since then I’ve made my passion a business and performed at various events, music festivals, weddings and corporate events. In addition to DJ work I have always had a passion for producing music. Since 2004 I have written, produced, mixed and mastered over 80 songs, some of which have been featured on beatport, iTunes, as well as various television networks.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The biggest challenges I’ve come into have been self-doubt, failure as well as being turned away by a few venues. Sometimes the reason for something not working out in your favor is because something better is waiting for you over the horizon. This is the belief I have kept no matter what the circumstances.
Please tell us about djmikestrip.com.
At my business I specialize in mobile DJ entertainment, lighting and visuals for all types of music festivals, weddings, corporate events and more. In addition to providing entertainment services, I also manage a recording studio where bands, music producers and vocalists can get their music recorded, mixed and mastered.
What sets my business apart from others is the experience I have. I have been DJing since 2002 and producing music for television and movies before that. The finishing touches I put onto any project I have is far beyond the status quo.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Surfing with my father in high school. My family helped me when I was 12 years old get into electronic music production and I have not stopped ever since!
