The single was the first record from the Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike catalogue featuring Mike as a vocalist and songwriter. From producing the iconic sounds behind ‘Mammoth’ to writing and singing on ‘Higher Place,’ Like Mike has shown his diverse creative abilities to his fans time and time again.
The brothers then collaborated with Wiz Khalifa for the hit record ‘When I Grow Up,’ and their 2017 summer smash ‘Complicated’with David Guetta and Kiiara has amassed over 169 million streams on Spotify so far, along with more than 89 million YouTube views.

The 15-song album perfectly flows between songs, creating a pensive story of love, pain, and everything in between.
Mike’s project grew from his need to dig deeper into the sounds of his early years and young adulthood, a blend of genres that were the soundtrack to his life. His younger years were a period during which he explored his musical creativity. Singing and songwriting were the first steps into his musical career, even before producing the numerous hits with his brother that led to today.

Teaming up with masked maestro Claptone on ‘Right Into You’ featuring Grammy-nominated indie artist Mansionair, Like Mike, yet again flexed his capabilities beyond dancefloor-rupturing EDM anthems. ‘Right Into You’ was a well-received ambient floor-filler that blurred the boundaries of indie-pop and house with its powerful synths, romanticising lyrics, and effervescent chorus.
Continuing his creative path, Mike began releasing singles he had road-tested in his solo performances after garnering international praise from his fans. The first is ‘Desire,’ a song written, produced, and sung by Mike, putting his artistic abilities on full display and then releasing a tapestry of singles throughout 2022, including ‘Speed Of Light’ and the psychedelic-influenced progressive house ‘Awaking’ with Asher Swissa, continuing to showcase his diverse production expertise. His single ‘Dance For Me’ with Kasangoand the vocals of Julia Church, a melodic house track that continues to prove Mike’s genre-transcending production prowess.
Boasting an almighty catalogue of solo releases alongside growing his independent record label Green Room and forming one-half of the world’s top EDM duo, Like Mike has also been performing solo headline slots everywhere from Tomorrowland to Area 51 Las Vegas and Mykonos No.1 superclub VOID to Arcadia in Qatar, in which he premiers his diverse range of unreleased productions and continues to wow crowds with his musical depth.
