Mickey Pearce
Mickey Pearce is one of the most singular producers to emerge from the UK in recent years. Always ahead of the curve, his tracks can be heard in the playlists of tastemakers including Jackmaster and Ben UFO. Recent releases on Ten Thousand Yen and Crème Organization’s Jericho One are up there with the weirdest and his DJ sets pull together wide-ranging styles into a percussive and physical racket that has laid waste to dancefloors around the world.

Mickey has always maintained a tradition of reworking and flipping other artists’ work. His take on Dat Oven’s Icy Lake was an underground hit in its own right, and his remix of Denzel Curry’s Threatz led him to work with Denzel on original material.

His releases with Swamp 81 have defined a particular sound, with early releases Don’t Ask Don’t Get and his remix of Boddika’s Soul What paving the way for others to follow. In 2014 Mickey broke rank to release his Up West mixtape, followed soon after by the Instructions EP and 2015’s Wam Barzz EP. In DVA he has found a kindred spirit, the pair collaborated on 2015’s ALLYOURRECORDS EP for Hyperdub and appear for rare live performances as 2WEQ.

Mickey’s LP, Michael, which was released in the summer of 2016, saw him exploring new territory; crafting a strange and melancholic landscape of beatless textures and leftfield House &Techno.
