DJ MICHAEL SYKES
I got into DJ’ing at a friends New Year’s Eve party when they asked me to play the music.
I’ve always had an interest in music, including mixing it together to enhance it. The feedback I got, including follow-on bookings, showed me I’d got a skill.
It’s about being able to take pre-recorded music and present it in a way that’s enjoyable to lots of people.
All the equipment I use is owned by me. It’s regularly tested and upgraded. Over time I have built from a simple deck and a single light, via completing an advanced DJ’ing course, to the most modern DJ’ing decks and lighting worth thousands of £GBP… a testament to how seriously I take this. And, should the worst happen, I carry a full back-up music system to ensure your event is maintained.
I work with you to agree what you want for your wedding, party or event. Whether you have a clear vision, some initial ideas or just a date, I’ll discuss this with you and then build out from this using my knowledge of music and experience of reading the dancefloor to make your party the best it can be for everyone.
I cover Pontefract,Leeds,York,Ripon,Harrogate and Yorkshire area.
By agreement with you I can play basic sets up to very complex mixing. My genres are 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and modern party music, and complex mixing sets of trance, house and EDM.
