Mike's musical development went through roofs, cellars, bunkers, more than ten years together with HASCHPAPA AND THE GABRIELS, and various projects with the fabulous sound designer WILLI BOPP, performance-artist GUNTRAM PROCHASKA, the band TKTSSS... and many others.
His main influences or idols are Jeff Beck, GENESIS, BRAND X, Peter Gabriel, TOTO, ZZ-Top and SVEN VÄTH. Important influences and sound-inspirations also came from the last couple of years and many sleepless nights in Music-Clubs around Frankfurt, like "OMEN" (closed meanwhile) and "U-60311" (the home clubs of Sven Väth), "COOKY's" and "DORIAN GRAY" and the "Blues&Beyond" Session Club.
Mike works not only solo, but also intensively with the "mikeburn and friends"-band and various guest musicians, song-writers and international web-collaboration partners.
Mike's "Starship Bobota" music video was produced together with the extremely gifted graphics and video designer, Andreas Matzke, whose work has been featured by major companies like SONY.
It was recently described as 'insanely cool and innovative' by insiders in the indie music scene.
