.. Born Derby England 1968. Family return home to Dublin 1974.. Parents are both heavily into traditional irish music. Mick makes no connection what so ever with this awful racket & from an early age is exposed to John Barry's soundtracks.. Pink floyds on the run, The radiophonic workshop's Dr who soundtrack & Vangelis's "Chung Kuo" to name but a few.. The early eighties was a bleak period for mick as he is forced to listen to his older brothers taste in music due to the lack of income & not owning his own music system..Dodgy metal bands like Saxon, Judas priest, Motley crud : ) etc were played at ear bleeding levels in the shared bedroom.. Mick's brother once found a hidden cassette of The pet shop boys "Please" & warned him that if he ever found that synthesized homosexual shit in his cassette deck that he would be murdered.. The late eighties improved somewhat for Mick as he left school & became employed, he was now able to purchase cassette albums & vinyl releases every week.. His favorite artists at this time were Kraftwerk, Prince, pet shop boys, Cabaret voltaire, the the, Public enemy & of course early detroit techno & acid house which were just arriving into europe at this time. Then came along stakker's "Humanoid" & his music buying habits changed forever.. Then the 90's arrived, dance music erupted & mick discovered an underground club in Dublin called sides,where you could hear tracks from 808 state, LFO, Orbital etc, then mick bumped into old school pal Paul byrne in the club & discovered that they now shared the same interest in music. The friendship was reborn & they both start to work in DV8 shoes, a very trendy shoe store in Dublin's temple bar, they are given control of the music policy : ) By 1993 the electronic music boom hits, Intelligent techno or IDM, Ambient, etc labels like warp, rising high, GPR fax R&S; etc are emptying Micks wallet every week, buying 2 or 3 cds every week.. He starts creating Chillout mix tapes using a Kam dj mixer & two portable CD players with no pitch control.. Painstakingly working out the mixes.. When the mixes are complete he writes mixed by "The Chillage Idiot" on the tape ..... Friends listen to these mixes in far away places like Australia, Ibiza, etc.. 1995 Mick & Paul attempt to create some music in a friends local studio. The guy who owns the studio knows someone who DJs on dublins XFM & they end up getting a test slot on the station. Xfm are worried that they are just more fuckin dance djs.. XFM like the selections & the Chillage idiots are born... Check the Chillage idiots out at www.xfmdublin.com. After much wasted time & money in the friends local studio, Mick decided to buy his own equipment, which he did in 1996. By 2000 Mick had most of the gear he needed to create the kind of music he wanted, so in the same year Mick released a compilation called Various Projects under the name Mick Chillage. The CD was a very limited CDR which was poorly mastered from minidisc : ( and was only available in a local infamous local independent music store called Big Brother records. The cd covered a wide range of styles in the electronic music genre. Mick managed to sell all the copies, which wasn't too bad considering the shop sold mostly vinyl... Other releases included a compilation featuring Irish alternative music called Saccherine : Track featured : A good nights bleep under the alias Michael Moog. Then Mick Chillage was featured on the Nueromantek CD compilation which was given free to promote a popular electro club night. The CD also featured artist like Decal & skkatter.. Mick Chillage also submitted two tracks for the D.E.A.F. mp3 downloadable compilations, which are still available to download.In 2005 Mick started performing some live sets most memorable was playing at Electricity, Dublins premier techno & electro club night. Some of the finest techno producers & djs have played at this club, artists like Speedy j , Laurent Garnier, Ritchie Hawtin etc... 2007 saw the release of my first EP "Soundescapes" on Herb recordings this digital release was available between june to september & featured various strains of electronica recorded between 1999 to 2006. Also my "eye on the city" EP is available from this_side.net for free download.. 2009 will see the release of more projects on various labels & even a full length CD album on a respected electronic label, watch this space.. no longer available  ( You should create your own MySpace Layouts like me by using nUCLEArcENTURy.COM's MySpace Profile Editor! tup006cdpromo.gif You should create your own MySpace Layouts like me by using nUCLEArcENTURy.COM's MySpace Profile Editor! no.12 in the deutsche chill out chart includes my dub mix.. junodownload beatport etc...
