Welcome to Ibiza or Echo Beach, Bali my friends. Dutch producer Mike Mago has done what I have come to love in house music: made a banger of a tune, with soulful vocals on top that are reminiscent to being in a Baptist church on a Sunday.
It’s the Lord’s music, I tell you.
Similar in approach to another of my favorite Dutch producers (Bakermat), Mike Mago knows how to construct the perfect dance track, keeping momentum going throughout without appearing too repetitive.
And why wouldn’t he? Michiel Thomassen, professionally known as Mike Mago, who as label head honcho of Amsterdam-based BMKLTSCH RCRDS has been curating what’s hot and what’s not from Dutch soil and beyond for several years now.
Rewind to late 2012 when he decided to shift the focus from his label to his solo artist career by keeping the releases of his label BMKLTSCH RCRDS on a low frequency and meanwhile slowly changing its direction and defining the label’s profile with his own releases. Let’s just say the rest is history (in the making).
Did I mention I love dance music? Listen to his tune below (I could cry it’s so good).
