Mike Parker lives and works in Buffalo, New York. When he is not twisting analogue frequencies in the studio, he lectures Fine Art at the State University of New York in Buffalo.


Over the years, his education in the visual arts has had a profound impact on the music he produces. His production style is as uncompromising as his DJ sets are powerful: a track is rehearsed many times, then recorded live on mostly analogue gear with no edits or overdubbing later. His DJ sets have the same spontaneous bite.


His main output has been on his own Geophone label, on which he has released to date nineteen unrelenting. throbbing techno cuts, remixed (very rarely) by the likes of Donato Dozzy & Woody Mcbride. Mike’s other releases include recordings for Prologue Records, Orange Groove, Labyrynth & Dozzy Records. His 2013 album ‘Lustrations’ on Prologue was met with widespread critical acclaim from all corners of the techno world for it’s minimalistic take on contemporary techno. Strong mixes for mmml sag have further increased the devoted following to his tight and power DJ sets and have helped him perform all over the planet.


For his addition to our podcast series Mike has compiled a mix that becomes very much an other worldly experience. Right from the start waves of audible emotion begin to lap at your feet, with ever growing intensity, until eventually they completely surround and smother you in their warm uplifting glow. Come the end you find your mind transported to somewhere very far from where your body happens to be in reality.
