MIMO has played festival sets at Life in Color and spun at different venues throughout Ohio. Furthermore, he’s also been direct support for some of dance music’s greats including Alesso,  Carnage, Krewella, Sander van Doorn and Steve Aoki. We got the inside scoop on what he’s been up to since the release! 

On His Beatport Chart Success…

It’s an incredible experience/feeling being on the Beatport charts!  Been working very hard to get my music to the next level and it’s great to start seeing the results. I don’t measure my success on those charts but it is a nice feeling to have so many people like my music and continue to support me.


On How He Finds Success In A Fast-Paced Industry…
It’s changed a lot and is very difficult. I didn’t understand the industry and all the in’s and out’s, but I’ve definitely learned something new with each release. It’s tough to be a new artist in an already saturated market; I continue to try and get my music out to as many channels and outlets as possible (like Life Backstage). 
On What’s Next… 
I have a lot of stuff coming up for the remaining part of 2016, including a release set for October!
