With every step that he takes, Dutch DJ and producer Mike Cervello is growing as an artist and gaining fans alike. His 2015 Barong Family debut Smack EP was supported by hit makers like Hardwell, Diplo and Skrillex, with the title track (featuring Cesqeaux) getting to #1 on Beatport. Mike’s remix of Yellow Claw’s ‘Wild Mustang’ was another big hit with fans. Creating a signature sound and continuing to connect with people through dance music remains his goal throughout.
Following a tour of Australia with Yellow Claw, Mike released his Empire EP at the start of the summer 2016. It features a collaboration (‘Front 2 Back’) with Dutch master Laidback Luke, who commented: ‘Mike is part of the new school with an obsession for that old Dutch sound. I’m very happy that crazy sound is back. I love Mike’s tracks and I love everything Barong Family does.’ The EP’s remixes by Cesqeaux, Mightyfools, Moksi and Junkie Kid were released in November.
After appearing at Tomorrowland for the second consecutive year, Mike played his first shows in America at two sold-out nights at the Hollywood Palladium (headlined by Yellow Claw). After finishing a 16-date Barong Family World Tour in October, he played the world’s first zero gravity DJ set 30,000 feet above Las Vegas and made his South American debut at Creamfields Chile 2016. You can expect to hear all of these incredible experiences reflected in his third EP, coming early 2017.
