At twelve years of age, a young version of Mic Most was just venturing into the world of music, discovering the skills of his own on a Casio keyboard, a karaoke machine and a set of headphones he already figured out could be used as a microphone. Realizing quickly how much he enjoyed making music as he grew up in Orange Co., CA – he made a commitment to continue his path into music and never surrender the incredible feelings and genuine ability to connect to others that music had shown him.
He made one of the most important moves in his life to that point and relocated to Texas. Discovering the music scene was full of talent but missing some flavor, Mic Most began to find his niche in the independent scene almost instantly. After getting heavily into & influenced by electronic music, he eventually went on to become a DJ/Promoter within the local scene, displaying his own incredible sounds night after night, but now also assisting and inspiring others to make the best music they could make as well.
As his reputation as both an artist and producer grew and word continued to spread, it led Mic Most to start his own record label – Get Live Musik – and really step into studio controls. At the helm of projects for independent talent from all over the scene, Mic Most has been ensuring that each of the artists he’s worked with have gotten the very MOST out of their MIC. With his own success firmly established, Mic Most began to work almost twice as hard getting others the recognition their talents deserved.
Today, Mic Most hasn’t slowed down a single bit. Working harder than ever and drawing continual inspiration for love, life and the amazing local talent like Tru Def, Codar, Alsace Carcione, G Elysium and many more; Mic Most has still found more than enough time to create his own creative electronically-driven music in a hip hop-ish style. Claiming the “Best Artist” prize as top performer at the 2013 Dallas Music Conference, the skills of Mic Most have been confirmed time & time again.
Mic Most has projects with The Ambient Society, Los Angeles Digital Audio, and also was in a side-project known as 2w0E1even where he matches his own creativity with that of two-time Grammy Award winner Jah Born.

My love for music goes back as far as I can remember, but the DJ fire was lit for me in the mid 1980’s with sounds like German Techno, British synthpop, , and San Francisco leather bar. With these emerging new sounds in my head and new experiences at local underground clubs, moving into the DJ arena was the next inevitable step.
Early stints at clubs in East Texas evolved into bigger things in college. Running my own mobile DJ service and spinning in college clubs 3 and 4 nights a week only served to fuel the fire for sharing the music I loved with the world. Guest mixes during spring break at clubs like The Coliseum in Daytona Beach and Club Rio in Corpus Christi were some of the highlights of my early days.
My move to the DFW area came in the early 90’s when I was hired to DJ at a large nightclub in Ft. Worth. After graduating College and several years of working by day and DJing by night I decided it was time to merge the two so I opened my own nightclub (Xccess). It had been a dream of mine for years and I was finally afforded the opportunity to make it a reality.
After time I realized I did not share the same enthusiasm for running a club as I did DJing in them so I sold everything and took a hiatus. A few years later I heard some mixes from DJ Moxie being played at clubs like Afterlife and my fire was reignited. I’ve been back at it for about 7 yrs. and I’ve never had more fun playing the music I love for the world. Thank you ActiveSessions.fm!
