Mickey Kojak regularly takes his fanbase on an eclectic ride from club thumpers to abstract slow jams. The producer/vocalist takes inspiration from a merging of new and old technologies and styles, leading him down fresh, untapped stylistic paths, and we’re all too happy to follow along.
Growing up in the spotlight, Mickey’s debut 'Feel My Pain' was a huge success landing him his first Triple J rotation, a record deal with Sweat It Out, as well as a slot at Groovin’ The Moo and Splendour In The Grass. Amongst his first shows were a national tour supporting Hayden James, Crooked Colours and special guest appearances at the Alison Wonderland Warehouse Project.
In 2017, we saw him release his ‘Surrender' EP through Australian dance music mainstays Onelove, a huge tonal step forward, exploring a new range of sounds and styles. This was supported by a jam-packed year of Australian touring, including his first theatre run alongside Motez. The record has been streamed more than a two million times domestically.
2018 began with two monster covers of Daft Punk and Mac Demarco, both of which landed him the coveted top spot on HypeM.com. This led to a vocal feature with American festival closer K?D for his single ‘Electronic Memories’ and a joining of forces with newly founded Republic Records imprint Alt:Vision.
‘Get Out’ made an impression across the globe, being supported enormously by Sirius XM’s Alt Nation and Peru’s Doble Nueve. His follow up track “All That Acid” was spun over 150 times on triple j and led to Mickey playing headline shows at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory and Melbourne’s The Worker’s Club. These singles become the groundwork for his latest EP ‘Together’, featuring guest vocals from one of Australia’s most spectacularly infamous performers, Bluejuice’s Jake Stone.
Mickey’s latest release is a collaboration with Bag Raiders on their single ‘Wild At Heart’ - they will be touring together in August in what is sure to be an absolutely monstrous run of shows.
