American DJ's Winner Will Play At BPM 2011
Mike Susca (DJ Mikey Mike) is traveling over 8,600 kilometers from Los Angeles to the BPM Show in Birmingham. It’s doubtful that many DJs will have traversed a greater distance to get to the World’s largest DJ show, it’s almost certain that none will have earned their passage to the show in such a novel way.
The California DJ won his trip to BPM from American DJ in its 'Come Play In The UK Contest'. The competition invited DJs to submit a short video that described which European DJ or musician they would like to meet. Mikey’s 2 minute and 39 second production, built around a rap version of Yellow Submarine and featuring cameos by the Royal Family and Beatles selected DJ Simon Fletcher as the must-meet star.
Looking at his trip to BPM, Mikey can only describe it as a “dream come true.” Last year, American DJ ran a contest in Europe that offered DJs a chance to win a trip to the Mobile Beat Show in Las Vegas and attend the American DJ Customer Appreciation Party, which featured a performance by Naughty By Nature. By sending Mikey to BPM, the company has completed its trans-Atlantic DJ bridge building.
