DJ Carl Michaels fell in love with dance music before he hit junior high school. Peer pressure and adolescent identity crises led him through a heavy metal phase and a hip-hop phase, but his central passion laid with repetitive beats made for dancing. After discovering the New York freestyle movement and moving on to the sounds that were coming out of the warehouses of New York and Chicago, Carl decided at 16 years old to spend a few grand on a DJ setup. Carl Michaels spins honest sets that cater to his audiences without compromising anything. Mixing uplifting vocals, funky disco house and tech-tribal anthems, Carl’s sets run the gamut and keep audiences longing for more. He views the experience of satisfying his loyal audiences as one of his most inspiring and exhilarating experiences. Carl currently travels often and hold residencies at Vers NYC, Paradise Asbury Park, W Philadelphia, Stir Philly and Cockatoo.
