Began his career as a disco and funk DJ in Toronto in 1979, and began to develop what was to become a huge following by the mid 80’s. Additionally, he has hosted and/or programmed over six different house music mix shows on various radio stations, spanning the last ten years. This wealth of experience includes stints on Energy 108 (Canada’s biggest dance station), Buffalo, New York’s WBLK, as well as the original “Keys To House” (a nationally syndicated program in the U.S.), and the first ever house music show on Canadian radio (The “Rhythm Method” on CHRY in Toronto). A proven live performer, Mitch has spun memorable sets in New York City and in Germany, and has also amassed a portfolio of many residencies in significant Toronto clubs. His audiences there have come to expect a solid repertoire of hard New York Tribal House and pumping garage, mixed elegantly to his very high standards. Mitch’s credentials as a studio artist are also impressive. He has remixed tracks for ‘Lil Louis and The People Movers, among others; he has collaborated with The Stickmen; and he has also been featured as producer or remixer on releases for Hi-Bias, SPG, Quality and Container Records, Germany. Mitch’s most recent release, “Still Groovin'” (Aquarius) is still tearing up floors everywhere.
