Thanks for visiting the audio portal. My name is Mike and I am your audio assistant, at your service. I spent the last 10 years in the world of audio engineering and music production and performance. My education to you is based on countless years enjoying and experiencing live electronic dance music on a global scale, followed by a relentless desire to learn about the engineering behind dub and reggae sound systems, originating from Jamaica, and the bass audio culture that resulted in the UK in the 90’s, and becoming a global popular music movement.

Our 13 year old son really enjoys and has learnt a lot from his lessons with Mike. He chose DJ lessons over music production, and Mike helped us find a suitable inexpensive DJ device. Initially I stayed for the lessons so I could follow along, but then felt very comfortable leaving them to it while I did errands. I recommend Mike as an instructor, and he is a really nice guy.
