Mikael Weermets

In the modern era of dance music, Sweden has done for house music what the Netherlands did for trance and Germany for techno. From electronic titans Eric Prydz, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello to rising talents such as Avicii, Dada Life and Adrian Lux, Sweden has arguably produced some of the scenes most exported performers in recent times. The awareness of these artistsʼ has given rise to a ...new generation of grassroots talent and one such name that is hotly tipped to follow in the same footsteps as his predecessors is Mikael Weermets.

His first foray into the world of dance floors and house music came at the tender age of 19. Since then he has gone on to become one of his native homes most revered young djs, attracting house-praise with both his technique abilities behind the CDJs and his experimental jack beats style that fuses chugging funky beats with groovy baselines and hands in the air drops.

In 2007 he became the youngest DJ ever reached the finals of SMC (Scandinavian Music Convention) competing against household names like Eric Prydz, Axwell and Stonebridge. That same year he was voted ʻBest Swedish DJʼ in Megamind.se annual Most Popular Nordic DJ Poll and then jumping on residencys for Ministry Of Sound, HedKandi& the massive radio NRJ.

By the end of 2008 Mikael was also working as a resident tour dj for Ministry of Sound performing at many of their international events throughout that year. 2009 stood to be the first year Mikael stepped into releasing music, what came during those 12 months was a string of early releases for standout imprints such as Vicious Grooves, Superstar, Kontor Records, Spinnin Records and Le Mans Recordings. The early success Mikael had achieved with his production didnʼt go unnoticed as support for his music came from a string of heavyweight djs such as Roger Sanchez, Tiësto, Sander Van Doorn and Bob Sinclar among others. Mikael talents as a producer were also picked up by Cuepoint TV, who voted him part of their end of year feature special ʻ5 most up and coming producers in the worldʼ.

The year is now 2012 and Mikael has grown into a very powerful brand in the electronic music business. Late 2011 he signed with record giant EMI and the path of success is going strong for the 25 year old Swede.

Confirming three of the largest festivals in the world in the early stages of the year is just a teaser of whats coming up next. With numerous remixes on the biggest dancelabels in the world, a dussin of massive collaborations and a pending debutalbum on Kontor Records, the new Swedish super-DJ is holding one of the most busy calendars in the business, traveling all over the globe to perform and show the world that he´s one to watch in the coming years. 2011 saw also the launch of Mikael´s radio concept which now is picked up by over 15 different FM-stations over the globe. The weekly radioshow with its hypnotizing style is one of the most hyped DJ-podcasts out there today, and is reaching over 55.000 listeners every week.
