[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE]  This week's exclusive comes from South Africa's Mika!

How long have you been creating music?

I have been writing/ creating music for 3 years.

What do you use to make your tracks?
I use a Laptop with my go to DAW - FL Studio 12

How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?
 I discovered Dirtybird when Billy Kenny & Abby Jane released "I Operate" ever since then I fell in love with the label due to it's unique take on house music.

Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?
If I had the opportunity to collaborate with any Dirtybird artist, It'd definitely would be Billy Kenny. He was the reason why I got so engrossed into Dirtybird - his sounds are so unique and his character matches. I think he'd be a fun person to work with!

If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?
If my entire life was a movie, the title that'd best suit me would definitely be "Hangover" - Just because I tend to find myself at a party almost every weekend.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?
The best concert I've ever been to? mmm this is a tough one! Seeing Stephan Bodzin perform at Truth Nightclub was definitely one for the books! But Ultra South Africa really does know how to treat their crowd - especially when it comes to the Resistance stage.

If you could time travel, where and when would you go?
If I could time travel, I'd go back to the 1977 in Chicago when house music first started. It would've been interesting to see how the genre of music first started and developed into what it is today.

What species of bird best describes you and why?
I'd say that I'm an owl. I tend to stay up until the late hours of the morning whether I'm playing at events, working on projects or binge watching a series on Netflix.

What does Dirtybird mean to you?
Dirtybird holds a special place in my heart because of it's main focus, and that's pushing out quality music! But keeping 'family' in mind - the community that supports Dirtybird is honestly insane, and I'm really proud to be apart of the Dirtybird family and community.
