Michael The Lion

Music continues to evolve and lions continue to roar! Thus is the case with Michael The Lion and his first EP on Soul Clap Records. MTL is just one of the successful pseudonyms that have been associated with DJ Apt One. Pittsburgh-reared but Philly-styled, that City of Brotherly Love flavor is resident in nearly all of his work. A "genre-setter" with Nu-disco before it had a name, Michael has consistently delivered quality DANCE MUSIC through his production and DJing for more than a decade.

Great music often pays homage to its foundational past. Michael's original music accomplishes this with his sample-based focus rooted in a disco-fink-soul core but with a keen sensibility for today's dance floor. His incorporation of live vocals, like Amy Douglas' gutsy performance on the modern funk monster "Get It On", results in original SONGS vs. the "one hour bedroom tracks" that proliferate today. Live instrumentation has also been Michael's hallmark, differentiating his past hits like "Get More" and "909 and Herb" and on this EP with the hypnotic, "The Changer". I also love Michael The Lion's focus on POSITIVITY in MESSAGE, as is evident with the uplifting "Side of Life".

Whether through his original production, remixing/editing, or DJing, diverse music luminaries like Soul Clap, Jackmaster, Francois K, Gamble and Huff, Todd Edwards and many more all agree and appreciate Michael The Lion's prowess. On this new EP, you'll get to find out why too. Roar LION Roar!
