HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC.?
I have found the Mike The Jacket sound, that thing that makes you bite your lip and make that face expression! That is what i want people to feel every time. I also want the people to feel the joy that i have when i´m making music, there is nothing more exciting then making a new track that is going to move somebody on the dance floor, that´s the connection i have with the people, that is Mike The Jacket.
