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. He held down a residency at Revelations in Lakeland in 1996, as well as being the  Friday night resident dj at Om in Ybor City, and the Saturday night resident at The Edge in Lakeland in 1998.

In 1999 Mike transplanted to (719) Colorado, where he became an early staple of the Local Electronic Dance Scene, djing at events such as Majestic, Velvet, Silk , Fortress In The Forest, The Historical Candyland Massive, Genesis, S’Cool Beats, The Beginning, Apogaea, and the list goes on…

Mike’s eclectic style can not be defined by just one Genre, but can span through an arsenal made up of Deep, Dark, Dirty, Funky, Tribal, Techy, Bassy, Driving Rhythms that build and Intensify. His seamless mixing skills and versatility have allowed him to rock some of the Biggest dance floors in the nation, as well as share the stage with some of the best in the business.  

In 2007 Mike joined forces with Natural Nate and Bruise Your Body Breaks as they were lifting off a new weekly Internet Radio show. The show has aired every week since, gaining International recognition, and setting the standard for many who have watched and Listened. It can be seen and heard around the World Live every Thursday evening on

We have been asked several times... 'Where can we pre-order your new record?' ( Click here to pre-order ) We could not be more than excited! We have been talking about pressing more records and we finally have a reliable source for pre-sales and the record purchase. Juno has accepted us for this release and also future record releases. This is absolutely amazing! I cannot thank James Boggs with Hoodwink Records / Carocell music enough, for his extremely hard work to make all of this a dream come true. We are truly honored to work with some of the best mastering professionals, record pressing company, publishing companies, and individuals, in the world. We really took our time to find the right companies to do these projects and really hope to keep pressing more in the near future. We are very humbled to seriously have this once in a lifetime opportunity.

If one believes or not in fairy tales, I say to them... Don't think too long. Each and everyday Love can be captured. If not for a moment Love can be held for a lifetime. "The notes to Jiggabot" are the prime example of how our myths & legends stand that inevitable test of time. The world deserves to know that "Fairy Tale" love stories are real. Within the grooves of this EP one can hear & feel that every bit of such a notion is True. James B Boggs
