A little bit about Mikey Laing from the man himself:

"I first found a love for music at a very young age, always borrowing my parents old records to listen to in the quiet of my own room.
This passion for music blossomed in high school when I took music as a subject.
Learning to play the drums, classical guitar and a little piano improved my ability to read & write music, as well as identify sounds and keys in various pieces of music without having to read the musical notes.
After experimenting with many types of sounds I eventually fell in love with House music, in particular the deeper sounds of House.
During my first year at University I developed an interest in mixing music and electronic music production, which ultimately fueled my desire to pursue DJ'ing as an interest.
Having a fairly sound music background (theory and practical) enables me to be versatile in terms of mixing as well as experimenting with various sounds in different environments.
I am part owner of a small production company called Energy Productions.
Both myself and my business partner, DJ Welkin are very versatile and frequently take various genres of music to different dance floor environments.
I have featured on 2 internet radio stations namely TwinFX Radio as well as Sensations Radio.FM which both broadcast internationally on a weekly basis.
I have featured at various night clubs and underground events alongside the following reputable international and local artists:
