Mike Sheridan (born October 25, 1991) is a Danish producer of electronic music. He has participated in the television show "Den 11. time" which was broadcast on DR2 in May 2007.[1]

Career[edit]

Sheridan began composing music at the age of eight, and was signed by an indie label when he was only 14 years old.[2] At the age of 15 he had already appeared on multiple compilations, showcased his music on national TV, played over 70 gigs at clubs that required him to be accompanied by a parent and released his first EP, "Alt & Intet", on MIS Records.[3] His debut album, I Syv Sind, came out on Playground Music Scandinavia in 2008, 6 weeks prior to his 17th birthday.[4] The album was universally acclaimed by critics and was on the Danish record chart for 7 weeks.[5] The track "Med Små Skridt" spent several months at number 1 on iTunes Denmark.

Mike has been nominated for 5 awards, winning a Danish grammy for “Best Electronica Album” for 2008.[6][7]

In 2009, Sheridan played at Roskilde, one of the five largest annual European music festivals.
