Mikey Francis is a DJ, producer, a creative force that is infiltrating one of the biggest electronic dance music markets on the globe Las Vegas, Nevada.
Although Mikey Francis is a fresh face to the Las Vegas EDM club circuit, he has a deep-rooted history in electronic music, production, DJing, and live performance. As a young adult, Mikey found his passion in music through playing guitar and singing in punk rock bands. He solidified his bond with the art the years that followed, developing a love for recording and producing his various projects, and simultaneously was admitted and finished his formal education with the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California.
After finishing his studies at USC, Mikey worked by day for an artist management company and played music by night, performing in a handful of punk and electronic bands in the LA music scene. In the summer of 2010, Mikey attended his first “rave,” the now infamous Electronic Daisy Carnival, and as the saying goes… the rest is history. At that moment Mikey knew he wanted to learn how to DJ and produce electronic dance music, and he traded in his band equipment for synthesizers, a pioneer mixer and a pair of old CDJs. The years that followed, Mikey took his knowledge and influence of the band world and brought it into his electronic music productions. He inked a major recording deal as an artist on Ultra Music with his project Black Boots. There he toured across the country and back in the emerging club scene and supported some of dance music’s biggest talents.
After the days of Black Boots and Ultra Music ran their course, Mikey Francis began to focus on his solo career as a DJ and electronic music producer. He made his way back to his home town of Las Vegas, Nevada, where he is now the resident DJ for three of the world’s most famous clubs – Omnia Nightclub, Hakkasan Nightclub, and Wet Republic Ultra Pool. Every weekend, Mikey performs for thousands of club goers and electronic dance music fans, and has shared the stage with superstar DJ’s like Calvin Harris, Zedd, Tiesto, the Chainsmokers, Porter Robinson, Hardwell, and Steve Aoki, to name a few.
In addition to being a seasoned working DJ in one of the globe’s hottest nightlife scenes, Mikey is busy working by the day in the studio producing new originals, remixes, bootlegs, and edits of his own, and recently launched a music production house called Blood Moon Creative House – which focuses on music production, curation, and supervision for film, commercials, and video games.
Whether it be studio by day, or rave by night, one thing is certain… Mikey Francis the DJ, producer, and creator, knows just how to bring the party.
