DJ Story #11: Michael Vagas aka Mike Wild | Switzerland

Hi Michael, when did you become a Bali resident DJ?
2005. I started in Double Six, Dejavu, Sky Garden & Ocean Beach Club.

Tell us your background in music.
In the 1990’s “Dancefloor Syndroma” was starting it’s Music Revolution with Djaimin and Mr. Mike, bringing the best DJs from all around the world. They also had “Pump It Up” weekly show on Couleurs3 Swiss Radio, transmitting all the parties live. I was in love with this new sound and the creative movement from the party scene.

We had the luck to hear DJs Tony Humphries, Frankie Knuckles, Laurent Garnier, Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Mauro Picotto, Gianni Parrini, Willow, DJ Energy, playing every weekend in Mad Club Lausanne, with after-parties in Club Neuchatel, Oxa Zurich or Casino Montreux. Life was great and moving fast.

I had some of the best party feelings and the chance to follow, help and learn from DJ Massive who was in the 90’s Swiss rave industry. I learned DJ skills with him and played for opening raves as DJ S’Moon K .. Then I moved to Sydney (1996-97) where I played a few clubs and finished top 5 in the 1997 NSW DJ competition.

Favourite styles to spin?
House, techno, rave, psychedelic.

Current Bali residencies
Red Ruby Club.

(complete the sentence) .. “I love to play in Bali because ….”
the poolside and clubs are open 364 days a year and the people are warm, happy and life is fantastic!

Thank you Michael, see you around the island. Where can we follow you?
