|Mike Callander has long been one of Australia’s most dynamic performers both as a DJ and more recently as a live performer with Haul Music label partner Craig McWhinney. As a producer Mike’s productions for his Haul Music imprint have enjoyed tremendous support from a truly diverse range of international DJs including Konrad Black, Deetron, Len Faki, Hernan Cattaneo and Danny Tenaglia, while Mike’s latest works include remixes by Alex Smoke, Alexkid and Tornado Wallace. As a DJ it was at Mike’s own pioneering techno club, Fokus, in Melbourne in 2001, that Mike achieved instant fame for his genre-bending musical selections and an approach to DJing that was both versatile as it was unique. A decade later, Mike has performed and toured alongside a veritable who’s who of touring techno stars, while in Melbourne holding long term residencies at clubbing institutions such as Revolver, Sunnyside Up, Ffour, Honkytonks. |
In addition to the phenomenal reputation Mike has earned in his home city of Melbourne, Mike has also toured across Australia and New Zealand, and as far afield as Berlin (where he is a regular at Watergate), Cologne, Prague, Warsaw, Los Angeles, Madrid and Malaysia, playing alongside an array of artists as diverse as Mathew Jonson, Radioslave, Michael Mayer, Luciano, Locodice, and Sven Vaeth. Back in Melbourne, Mike plays weekly at Revolver, where he also hosts the “Haul Music Haus Party”, and at events such as The Likes Of You, Festivals such as Rainbow Serpent, Stereosonic, Future Music and Summadayze.
