Mike Risk

Mike Risk

Mike Risk got hooked on house music after he moved to Amsterdam at the age of 18 and it’s been flowing and beating through his veins ever since. From the idealism to spreading the gospel of house, uniting people and sharing the awesome feeling and experience, he (together with business partner Jeroen Roeleveld) threw his first party in 1994; ‘Club Risk’ was a fact. While foreign DJ’s were a rarity in Holland, he made it ‘normal’ to invite them weekly/monthly. Acts like DJ Rush, Kerri Chandler, Jack de Marseille, Ian Pooley and more played in Holland first via Mike and the full list of guest artists is nearly endless. Most infamous were the weekly nights at ‘Winkel van Sinkel’ in Utrecht and Club More (now Closure) in Amsterdam.

Parallel he established one of the first Dutch DJ agencies: ‘Risk Agency’, jumpstarting the careers of acclaimed DJ’s like Roog (Hardsoul), Leroy Rey, childhood friend Eric de Man and more. Big names such as Masters at Work, Kerri Chandler, Westbam, Jazzy Jeff, Ron Carroll, Joey Negro and more joined the agency for Dutch territory.

His pioneering promoting skills extended to other successful and groundbreaking parties & projects. He (co-)created Islander Festival, Southern Comfort Zone, O.W.A.P. (Original Warehouse Acid Party) and Luvdancin. He worked together with Gert van Veen (Quazar) on the famous Welcome to the Future parties. Mike was also responsible for the line-ups of the Bacardi-Bat Beats events and for the Chesterfield Labelland radio shows.

There is no simple way to describe Mike Risk, but to put it all together one could say he’s a pioneer in the ever-evolving dance music world, still influencing many with magnificent DJ sets and parties, touching souls and moving people!
