DJ Mike Pope (Atlanta, GA) has always had a passion for dance music and has been DJing professionally since 2006. Learning the ropes and spinning alongside well known international DJs has helped him develop his own musical style which is influenced by house, tech house, circuit, tribal as well as top 40 commercial dance. He has proven to be a very versatile DJ that can spin tea dance, peak hour and after hours sets and always takes the crowd on a musical journey. His podcasts have been featured over the years on AddictedToRadio.com, StrictlyDanceRadio.com and GayInternetRadioLive.com.
Pope worked for Billboard Magazine amongst a selected few DJs in the country and served as Georgia’s Dance Club Chart Reporter from 2011-2016. He has not only garnered recognition from music industry professionals and peers but he has also won many local Atlanta area awards as well as recognition for help with non-profits.
In 2010 he began his residency at Heretic Atlanta, and during his years there, he has developed a large loyal following that continues to expand. He has DJ’d at virtually every nightclub and bar in the Atlanta area including XION, Atlanta Eagle, TEN, Blakes On The Park, Opera Nightclub and Jungle Nightclub.
