Mikee’s passion for music started when he was a young boy, listening to all kinds of music. Started recording mix tapes at an early age. When he was 18 he travelled across the country as a dj when a good friend started his own drive-in disco show.
The passion for music stayed and grew, even when he stopped being a dj. However, you can’t take away the passion, and years later a bunch of family and friends saw that he wanted to play the music, and that was the turning point. They gave him a beautiful gift on his surprise birthday party: 2 turntables and some vinyl to start mixing again! From that moment on he started collecting different styles of house music and started spinning the wheels of steel again.
His first performance was on a dj contest, and won! He was given the opportunity to perform at Best Oldscool Events (BOE), and from that moment on Mikee has played on Ibiza, on festivals like Electronic Picnic, Last Minute Summer Event, Luilak Festival, RelaXation Micro Festival, in clubs like Escape, The Sands, Hollywood Music Hall, P3, and on internet radio at Amsterdam Most Wanted (AMW.FM).
Mikee is known for his enthusiastic performance and for playing funky groovy tunes. His style is a mix of techhouse, techno, house, deephouse and minimal house.
Mikee hosted his first own party at Strand West in Amsterdam, and his son Noose (Bart Strop) played at that gig too. Spinning back 2 back with Noose is a great experience, and sharing the same passion for music is awesome! Therefore Funky Fellas was the next step to make. Noose and Mikee started Funky Fellas and they host their own parties in 2014 called House of Zo, which is a huge success in Holland and even in Ibiza! They also play together as a father and son dj duo called Funky Fellas, and that is pretty unique in the scene!
