Very few figures in the Melbourne underground music scene have earned the respect that Michael Muska has due to his tireless devotion and dedication to Australian dance culture over the last decade.
Leading by example, this 'innovator' in every sense of the word has been the driving creative force behind some of Melbourne's most loved, abstract, memorable parties and festivals. Inviting patrons to constantly challenge their preconceived notions of genre-fixation thru an offering of experimental and multi-faceted musical events.
As prevalent as it is in his creative role as an event/concept developer and director, this same thought process, vibrance and creative energy is translated fluently across captivated dance floors. From side rooms to festival main stages, Muska displays an inert ability to connect with the energy and emotion of the listeners allowing him to react accordingly with profound unspoken empathy, gaining both a sense of understanding, trust and mutual respect between himself and those involved.
"When i connect with the vibe and energy of a dancefloor, it just makes feel so thankful to be contributing to that experience".
With a strong personal philosophy when it comes to life and music, Muska continues to evolve and engage, also applying his passions away from dance floors and into the seclusion of his studio, where these same principles and key ideas are drawn upon once again though his production, in an expressive interpretation of feeling and emotion, all relevant to these moments. - MUSKA Also an active member of the melbourne electronic music industry - Brown Alley Event manager 2008 to 2013 / Producer (Addictech Records) / Bushtechno - Record label music director / Let Them eat cake festival - Founder & Partner / Subsonic music festival (NSW) - co director / Strawberry Fields (Group) - Affiliate & club events director / Resident dj - Brown Alley (2007 to date) / Circus Sundays (nightclub) Resident Dj / Revolver Upstairs Resident Dj
