The love for Music started early for Mike. He started at the age of 12 with children’s disco for the city of Maastricht (code 043 The Netherlands).
After a couple of years he made his own glass house after the example of 3FM(Public radio). He was invited to join the radio DJ’s of 3FM on there annual quest to raise money for a good purpose.
Next he DJ’d for radio 538 on their tour through the Netherlands. Later that year (2010) he founded the VINYLJACKERS with Lorenzo van Engelshoven. First only as Dj’s later also as producers as they found their own identity . They helped local artists with their music and appeared on small stages as DJ’s. At the beginning of 2015, Ishi Coohrens joined them as a third member. Ishi studied sound education in Utrecht to further his knowledge as producer for the group. Ishi was the prime producer for the Vinyljackers and Mike was the Prime DJ.
Their luck changed as they entered “DJ Mag” producers contest. Which they won with their track ‘KANGAROO’ that became the anthem for ‘STAR BEACH’. Further they signed a record deal with “POWERHOUSE”, where they released ‘KANGAROO’ and their track “NOTHING HOLDS US BACK NOW”. The Vinyljackers then chose to go on as a duo with Mike and Ishi.
The first highlight in their career was when they where invited to perform on “STARBEACH” Chersonisos Greece. They performed 2 times on the main stage (2015). Next highlight was their collaboration with Chris Willis (Love is gone). They worked form early 2018 until 2019 to produce tracks with Chris Willis. In the mean time they produced the official remix on the track “I bet my Life” from Imagin Dragons. They made a remix for the American singer Kaylee Keller “Diamond”. They performed again three times on Starbeach’s main stage. Everything changed when the VINYLJACKERS fell apart. They stopped playing and producing music for a long time, but Mike could not stop making music, because music is life. He changed his name to the name u now know, MIKENOVA and is working on building his new career with great new music. He just released Perfect Love that in 3 weeks already got over 50k streams support on Spotify.
