letter Meet the DJ – Michael Susca Doing It “From Scratch” For 

35 Years!

If you are at an party movin’ to mesmerizing music paired with a stunning light display, there is almost nothing that can take your attention away from the good time that surrounds you…but if you happen to hear the phrase: Hey Hey Hey, its DJ Mikey Mike from Direct Sound and were we are going to "Do It from Scratch", you know the fun is being provided by none other than DJ Mikey Mike. DJ Mikey Mike, or Michael Susca, has been spinning music for an incredible 35 years, and it ain’t stopping anytime soon. It all started for Michael at the tender age of 15, when he was given the huge responsibility to DJ for a birthday party with kids at school. Young Michael was dropped of by his dad with 10 LP’s and a stack of 45’s and scored a modest $25 from the gig. Burning a hole in his pocket, that profit didn’t last long, as it was hastily poured right back into the business in the form of more records. During a soul-searching session, Michael reflected on why he wanted to get into the DJ business. As always, the motivation was girls. He asked himself, “self, where are all the girls and what do they do well? DANCE!” He knew the way to get into the center of where the girls were drawn was to become the school’s after-game DJ. And that’s just what he did. Located in the High Desert of sunny Southern California, Michael Susca spends most of his time professionally in LA, Orange, Santa Barbara & Ventura counties. Any true Californian knows no matter where you live in SoCal, you most definitely will find yourself hopping all over the Golden State. When he travels, he never leaves home without his custom gobos incorporated in the American DJ moving heads and image projectors. These combined with some beautiful room up-lighting and he knows it’s easy to stand out from the crowd. When asked to describe his personal style, DJ Mikey Mike declares: “Behind the booth I'm kind of wild and crazy & definitely unpredictable. I love to beat mix a wide variety of music, mixing a unique blend of musical genres fit to keep the crowd on their toes.” He is fully aware of the fact that keeping a fresh twist on every aspect of the special event will keep things exciting and memorable. Michael has been in the unpredictable DJ business long enough to know that the most important lesson for any DJ is to come prepared for anything. He understands that a wedding is the most important day in a couple’s life, and takes that responsibility very seriously. His mantra to “always be prepared” has resulted in some issues being skillfully resolved without the happy couple even knowing there was a problem. DJ Mikey Mike is probably most widely known for his YouTube series entitled “Do It From Scratch”, which is described as combining MacGyver and Bob Villa in the DJ industry. He shows fellow DJ’s from around the world how to tap into their own DIY skills by building custom cases, unique lighting brackets and stands, and even a DMX lighting control training video. DJ talent and know-how must run in the family, and Michael couldn’t be prouder of his son & daughter who have just started getting their first solo gigs.  Gavin and Kristi, takes the sage advice and wisdom from their father and parlays them into a successful careers of their own,  DJ Mikey Mike beams with pride as he states, “Way to go, Gavin & Kristi!” There are almost too many memorable events in Michael’s long career to recall, but the ones that stand out include the time he was asked to perform on the Rogers Dry Lake Bed at Edwards Air Force Base California on Friday, November 13th 1981; the night before the first Space Shuttle was to land. That night, DJ Mikey Mike excitedly played music that was enjoyed by 200,000 people celebrating the arrival of the Shuttle. Flash forward to Christmas 2009, Michael had the unique opportunity to transform a party room into a winter wonderland, complete with a live video ceiling that featured floating snowflakes and wintry gobos that created masterful winter effect. A still-reeling Michael gushes “I still can't believe the room wasn't part of some kind of fairytale book.” Now that’s a perfect example of how he’s “Doin’ It From Scratch”!
