Mix #174 we bring you DJ BOSS a.k.a Mike C. from Chicago, Illinois. Originally starting off as a hobby, Mike would make mixtapes and pass them out to people on the streets and to the kids in his high school. Before he knew it, his DJ career was starting to gain traction. It wasn’t until the late 90’s that DJ BOSS would burst onto the scene and would start making a real name for himself by playing at house parties and festivals. Fast forward to the early millennium and you would find DJ BOSS at the clubs and after hour parties spinning that underground house sound that would make the crowd gravitate to the dance floor.
In the beginning, DJ BOSS would carry crates of records to his parties but over time the industry would evolve and the laptop era would be born. With the help of software like Traktor Scratch Pro, DJ BOSS was able to cross over to the digital world seamlessly. Websites like DMS helped ease in the transition to digital music, by making all genres readily accessible. Though House music is his genre of choice, DJ BOSS has spent many years perfecting the skills required to transition from one genre to another without skipping a beat (pun intended).
These days, DJ BOSS can be found on Friday and Saturday nights playing at the Clubs, Concert Halls or Private Events in and around Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. His crowd reading ability, smooth transitions, eccentric music selection, and 20+ years of experience are what separate him from other local talent. With the help of Social media platforms like Facebook, MixCloud and DMS, DJ BOSS has been able to reach the masses and share his passion for music with people all across the globe.
