Miss Michie started spinning records in 2001 but her love for breaks began when she was just 11-years-old. She fell in love with groups like The Beastie Boys and Run DMC and began breakdancing. It wasnt until she was introduced to the Toronto underground party scene that she heard funky breaks and fell in love with the genre.
Before specializing in funky breaks she also dabbled in genres like UKG, house and jungle. Although funky oldskool breaks is her true passion. The funkier, the better! she says. Michie is known for throwin down some rare oldskool tunes but is versatile and can mix it up with some fresh and eclectic beats. She exudes pure energy behind the decks and loves to make the crowd shake their booty. If shes not behind the decks singing and dancing to the tracks, shes out on the dancefloor rockin\' out.
Shortly after Miss Michie began spinning, she met another female dj, Lucy Lytes, from Vancouver. The ladies connected and Lucy made the move to T.O. The two teamed up and began to take over the breaks scene. Together they played all over Southern Ontario as well as Vancouver and Whistler. Lucy and Michie started a weekly breaks night called Messy Wednesdays which showcased many of Torontos breaks and house talent as well as providing environment of opportunity to talented up-and-coming djs.
A big opportunity was presented to the girls when they threw down an amazing set at the World Electronic Music Festival 2003 (WEMF) during their four hour set on the only outdoor stage. They were approached by Tribe Magazine to be featured on the next cover and interviewed for a dj profile feature article.
Miss Michie ultimately ventured out on her own to try spinning solo and has found success individually. She has made appearances throughout the Toronto club circuit. Showcasing her talent in venues such as, The Docks, System Soundbar, Boa Redux, Republik and Madbar, to name a few. She has also headlined and performed at many all-ages breaks events through out the province. Miss Michie is now breaking her way into the U.S. and has played events in Buffalo and Rochester.
She currently holds residencies with Email Productions, Impure Productions, Projek Wednesdays, Destiny, and Soul in Motion. She has played alongside talented djs such as Mix Master Mike, Dj Love, Czech, Reid Speed, Annalyze, Krafty Kutz, Jen Lasher, The Beatfreakers, Andy C, and many more.
In addition to spinning records, Michie is currently studying Sound Technology (Recording Arts) at the Academy of Design and Technology.
