Mikey Da Roza is a loyal and avid music fan with ties into the electronic music scene since 1994. He discovered “techno” as it was called back then, when electronic music started to explode on the Canadian West Coast. Originally from Vancouver, Mikey chose to call Calgary his home after moving eastward across the Rocky Mountains. Within a very short period of time, his musical abilities, business sense and outgoing personality brought him into the ranks of Canada’s DJ elite.

With a residency at Skybar, he honed his DJ skills in his new city, playing for many international DJs as they came though. His sound ranged from deep, chunky Chicago house to big room floor fillers, and took him to several US cities, Mexico and Toronto. DJ'ing is rare these days for Mikey as other aspects of the music business became more of a career focus.

With the inception of Aqua Audio in 2001, Mikey has played an instrumental part in bringing top tier dance acts to Calgary, helping form, push and develop a scene here over the past 15+ years. In 2014, Aqua Audio merged with Blueprint Events from Vancouver, helping form one of the largest promotional networks in Western Canada.

In 2008, Mikey, along with his partners (Cary Chang & John Liwag) opened Habitat Living Sound, a DJ owned and operated micro-club concept in the old Castle Pub space on the iconic 1st Street SW. In the last 10 years, they've continued to curate everything house & techno, developing a following with local and international acts gracing their dance floor.

Mikey remains a prominent figure in the dance community and plans to continue to push the boundaries and provide us with some of the most memorable moments created on dance floors.
