Mickey is storming the Beatport Deep House chart from the very start.
His “Sweet Baby” has been out for a bit more than one week and he’s on #6. Not bad if you ask us.
Besides this chart madness his Exploited podcast is up on Soundcloud and Youtube so go and have a listen.
To round this all up we suggest you have a dance at Bloody Louis tonight if you’re in Belgium. Mickey will be playing alongside Henrik Schwarz and Oneman. Heroes much?
The weekend starts early this week. And we like it.
Joyce Muniz & Bam are still standing strong with Back In The Days!
And there’s even better news for the wax lovers on here as you can preorder it on Juno now.
Also Adana Twins’ Drive feat. Khan is featured in this chart on #16.
Get the limited collector vinyl (only 500 copies) on Juno, at Phonica or on Deejay.de

As an adolescent, he dreamt of playing in a rock group, but also discovered Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Front 242 and Detroit techno. After having created his own studio and put together a few mixes on a Roland Compuphonic synthesiser (yes, that’s where the name comes from…), Maxime aka Compuphonic soon found himself behind the decks at Dirty Dancing nights in Brussels and recorded his first tracks for Dirty Dancing Recordings. In 2006, his reputation exploded on the dance floor with the groovy “Emotion”, produced in collaboration with Tiga and released on his label ‘Turbo’. In 2012 he released his highly anticipated “Sunset” Single on Get Physical – a piece of hedonistic house that is entirely characteristic of his style.
“We are the music that we create” once said Maxime Firket aka Compuphonic who is now another fine Belgian addition to the Exploited roster. He brings his spontaneous, positive and accessible sound to the label. With this Radio Atlantis EP he continues his search for originality and emotion. The overall atmosphere is filled with the good kind of melancholia everyone likes to feel once in a while.
„Radio Atlantis”, the title track, starts with organ like sounds that are accompanied by a witty bassline, unique vocals and even some acid influenced pads.
„Walking On The Edge”, with the same relaxed vibe as his megahit „Sunset” on Get Physical, is different from Radio Atlantis but at the same time also the perfect match. The storytelling vocal leads you through the track and its extraordinary simplicity.
To top off all of this you can expect some more music from Compuphonic on Exploited. We’re looking forward already, you hopefully too.
THANK YOU ISTANBUL. WE WILL BE BACK IN AUGUST.

Let’s start with a bit of a cliché:
We all know Belgians for their chocolate but Mickey takes the sweetness of this track to a higher level. And not in a corny way. On the contrary, in a delicate, elegant, thoughtful way just as we know the Belgian producer. For „Sweet Baby” he carefully doses the beeps and clicks with a bit of a dreamy vibe, topped of with intriguing vocals from heaven..
Yes, Mickey is back on Exploited.
His labeldebut „Walk Away” went straight into the Beatport Deephouse Top 10. „Sweet Baby” is definitely one that will stick, figuratively of course.
