A big fan of northern soul movement Mike played the saxophone and sang for mid-80s indie/dance forerunners Quando-Quango. As a resident at the Hacienda Mike provided the acid soundtrack to Graham's vocals with driving Friday's Nude night. Taking influences from his love of Northern Soul and Hip Hop his electronic sound track earned him the title from The Face magazine as 'England's most revered DJ'. In his role as Factory's A & R representative he also had the distinction of signing both James and the Happy Mondays revolutionising the UK music scene. He also provided Deconstruction with North: The Sound Of The Dance Underground, cited by many as the first UK house music compilation.
