MIKEY is that talent of a generation, standing alone with no obvious contenders. SO exciting!!
An iconic figure in Berlin’s underground music scene and queer nightlife, MIKEY Woodbridge AKA MIKEY voice fuses the primal power of shamanic ritual with the astral soundscapes of visionary trans/trance pop. Grown from years of live sets, MIKEY’s debut EP ‘Paths’ came out back in August, harnessing the pop format to put forward new ways of being, MIKEY’s music is both food for the speakers on the dance floor and a prophetic map for a generation that is hungry for transformation.
"I chose to film “Love Levitation” in one take & continuous shot as a kind of personal challenge. Part of me wanted to test my intuition & performance abilities, to prove to myself that I could cross over into a state of performative trance & be present in it as a do-or-die moment. Here I'm channeling the X-Men character Rogue, whose touch can kill. From my own experiences of living as a gender-non conforming being, I feel a connection with Rogue because she exists in a place where no one dares to bring their love.
