Michael McElyea aka Mike Devious is a self taught dj who started mixing records in 1994. His Love for dance music started at an early age and would often find him working up a sweat on the local dance floors in the (813) where he grew up heavily influenced by old school breakdance tunes and Miami Bass.. Then during the birth of the Florida rave scene, the pumping sounds of House and Techno were introduced and Mike was hooked right away. That’s when he set his sights on becoming the man behind the decks, controlling the frequencies, and provoking people to move to the beat. After seeking out a local record shop, he started his wax collection, bought some old turntables, and taught his self how to match beats and mix music.  It didn’t take long for him to catch on, and soon after, he was playing at night clubs and house parties all over the Bay Area, including venues such as Unity, The Empire, Luna Lounge, and The Masquerade, to name a few.
