Since kicking the door down and reaching the UK Top 20 in 1998 with “The Silence” Mike Koglin has been an established mainstay of the trance scene right from its nascent years. Throughout his career both behind the decks and in the studio the dynamic and energetic tracks which have become emblematic of his style have earned him a Grammy nomination and a place in DJ Mag Top 100, as well as critical acclaim across the board from artists such as Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Above&Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and many others. His body of work is extensive and his CV comprises writing, production and remix credits for big names including Boy George, Jeremy Healy, Dido, Cassandra Fox, Above&Beyond, The Thrillseekers, Lange, Pulser, Darren Tate, Ronski Speed, Mat Zo and Simon Patterson.
Mike’s DJ style is reflective of the tracks he makes – driving, energetic and uplifting. His peak-time sets feature a broad range of EDM styles from Trance to Progressive to ElectroHouse plus of course some of his own productions and remixes. His international appearances include Club Circus in L.A., Gaudi Arena Moscow, Zouk in Kuala Lumpur, Babyface Guangzhou, Ruby Skye San Francisco, Club Heaven in Seoul and X2 Jakarta to name but a few plus regular shows at London’s legendary Ministry Of Sound. Global festival bookings include the Love Parade in San Francisco, Switzerland’s Street Parade, Gatecrasher Tours in India and Australia, Revolution Festival Poland, Slinky Tours in Australia, Waterdance Festival in Russia, Malaysia’s Freedom Elite festival or 2F White at the Taiwan World Trade Centre.
While releasing his work on established labels such as Anjunabeats, Armada, Discover, Vandit and Perfecto Koglin also runs his own label Noys Music, and he hosts his increasingly popular radio show ‘The Noys Sessions’ monthly on DI.FM which is available as a free podcast from SoundCloud:
At present, Mike is preparing to unleash a slew of fresh material including several exciting solo projects, various remixes, and a number of collaborations with some of the biggest names in EDM. And with DJ bookings flying in thick and fast the future looks set to see Mike continue to reign supreme in the trance genre.
