As one of the most charismatic individuals to smash his way onto the house music scene in recent years, Micky Slim is the Birmingham-bred bad boy that has arrived and is ready to take over. For if 2005 was the year clubbers started murmuring about that boy Slim, then 2006 was the year they started shouting it from the hilltops. And who can blame them? With an outstanding production portfolio that has had a phenomenal success rate of being heard on BBC Radio1, an international residency that gives Micky global exposure, and a few helping hands (more later), its clear that Micky is not just one of the UKs finest up-and-coming talents, he is getting recognition the world over. Although Mickys love affair with house dates back over ten years, it was only two years ago that things really started to happen for him. After playing various bars and clubs around the midlands, Micky rented the Canal club in Wolverhampton in April 2005 to host a Tsunami fund raiser. The night proved a monstrous success and repeat bookings at the venue gave Micky the chance to shine alongside the likes of Yousef, Jose Nunez, Richard F and Tom Neville. At the same time Micky was making a big impact on the Birmingham after hours scene, which gave him the chance to develop his style and make his sets even more unique.
