Heading up this month’s Decoded Sunday series is Mike Nixon. Mike’s sets have been described as fairground rides; once you are on, there’s no wanting to get off, even when it all ends. His mixing expresses what can’t be said, creating an unparalleled experience of layers, composure, melody and movement, all expressing emotion.
From the early 90s Mike has been living and breathing house music, from early days attending UK clubs, underground house parties and illegal raves. In his twenties he sold everything to make the move to Jersey; enabling him the opportunities to learn from his idols and develop the knowledge and creative flair his mixes show today.
In 2000, PosterBoy became a prolific music forum user, and under this alias and using his graphic design skills Mike promoted both local and international events and DJs, and built up his profile and gaining recognition for his passion for music.
Meanwhile Mike was, amongst other projects, working for Pure nightclub and Jersey Live, liaising with promoters, DJs, guests, and some of pop musics biggest selling artists. Every other waking moment was spent in the Sanctuary studio, buried in a German underground bunker, watching MM making progressive masterpieces with the likes of Jimmy Van M, Ian Ossia and Stuart King.
