Mike Callander is one of Australia’s most dynamic DJs, resident of Melbourne’s infamous Revolver, and founder of one of Australia’s best known record labels for electronic music, Haul Music.
Mike’s productions and remixes for his Haul Music imprint have enjoyed incredible feedback and support from a truly diverse range of DJs, with his recently released debut album receiving critical acclaim and its first single signed to Dave Seaman’s mix for global dance music institution, Renaissance.
Mike’s unique approach to composition has also earned invitations to collaborate with Australian legends such as Aria winner Davide Carbone (FSOM) and recent ARIA Club Chart topper, T-Rek, while his productions have been remixed by a diverse range of electronic music’s underground stars from Alex Smoke to Alexkid and Tornado Wallace.
As a DJ Mike has enjoyed an incredible degree of success over the last decade, holding long-term residencies at coveted institutions such as Revolver and Honkytonks, for which he also released a mix CD that was distributed worldwide.
Since then Mike has toured the world at high profile clubs such as Berlin’s Horst, Bar 25, Cookies and Watergate, where he appears regularly, as well as in Cologne, Prague, Warsaw, Los Angeles, Madrid and Malaysia.
At home in Australia his DJing in support of touring international artists at countless clubs and festivals continues to earn accolades, with many labeling him one of Australia’s finest – most notably Get Physical’s DJ T., who invited Mike to Berlin to play alongside Steve Bug, Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y. and Mr. C at his anniversary event to celebrate 20 years of DJing. Mike is also one of only a select few Australian artists to have been named on the In The Mix honour role cementing his status as a pioneer and legend of the Australian underground music scene.
Most recently in Melbourne Mike launched The Sunday Morning Afterhours at The Bottom End alongside Andee Frost and Safari, a new night that has quickly become an institution, while his Friday night residency at Revolver moves into its third successful year.
