BIOGRAPHY
Originally hailing from the Tri-state coastal region of the US, Mieka Du Franx began to explore underground dance music in the early 90s in New York City, where she found herself plugged into Manhattan’s hottest clubs, at the age of just 15. Mieka's passion for rhythmic beats began as a young girl growing up under the influence of her father and brother's drumming. She naturally gravitated towards dancing and dancing lead to club music and the clubs lead to the music makers. Coincidently, in 1996 Felinephonix was established as and an event production, along with DJ promotions and Mieka's interest in mixing records. Her desire to contribute to the movement of dance music crossed over to her education in 99' at Northeastern University where she majored in the Music Industry. Her studies in Boston provided a foundation concentrated on recording, and music business. After two years at the university, Mieka's ambitions for hands-on training became her focus.Shortly after, Mieka relocated back to Manhattan where she attended The New School to study MIDI and held business as the Public Relations Coordinator for the infamous Satellite Records. In 2001 Mieka moved to Hollywood, California to attend The Musicians Institute, where she enrolled in the Recording Artist Program for recording, studio production, and digital media, earning a certificate in Recording Arts. In LA she slung rekids as usual and clocked in as a house & techno buyer of a local shop. From LA, she paved her way North to Vancouver, BC.

Vancouver has provided a crafty platform for Mieka's multi-media explorations, from her music production to her music label. Lab time at the city's Laguara College for Ableton Live has gained her developments for a nu developmental approach to production that is effectively reinventing her style for Felinephonix Music. The record label was formed in 2005 with its first record press, and continues to appeal to DJs around the world as it stretches to do things different. From the second release, FPX was recognized by some of the world's leading DJs and publicized on BBC radio. Within only six releases, the label had three major licenses. With strength in the ranges of House thu Tech-house, avant guard accents, and an emphasis on lyrical experimentation. Her vox experiments have Mieka's voice to become an FPX signature element. Inside the production box, projects include, remixing, vocalizing, songwriting, and edits. Outside the box, projects include designing fashions with Live In Color for online merchandising, as well as teaming up with local artists from Vancouver for an online/print magazine called Luul, and DJ showcases. Mieka's approach to working from the inside and out, highlights her natural ability to instinctually coordinate her spectrum of many talents expressed with an ease of authentic creativity. Her ideas appear to steadily rise with a spirit of pure fun, which in turn have manifested in her multi-media endeavors with unique flavor.
