A hugely influential DJ (especially in my house where he is otherwise known as "God"). Founder member of the Hot Mix 5, his shows were particularly noted for their seamless blend of Hi Nrg, Italo Disco, Electro, good 80's Pop and of course early Chicago House. His production skills were equally as influential and forward thinking. This music is well worth checking out and sounds as fresh today as it did back then. Sadly he doesn't seem to get mentioned in the same revered tones as say Jesse Saunders, Farley Jackmaster Funk and his other Chicago House peers. However at least in one house - MY house - Mickey, you are "The King". Amen.
