Mike Williams: Friends and family keep us grounded

Mike Willemsen or Mike Williams as he’s better in the dance music world stopped by the Nexus Lounge Amsterdam for a brief chat about his Masterclass during ADE, DJing with his Dutch colleagues at the Firebeatz & Friends, Spinnin’ Sessions, Mesto, and Hardwell shows.

Having already collaborated with some of the most influential names in the DJ world, Mike has learned that staying in contact with his family and friends has helped him stay grounded the higher he goes.

In the beginning when my career took off, I didn’t have a lot of contact with my friends anymore. I figured out quite fast that was a mistake because it’s so important to stay in touch with your friends and also with your family.”

Mike’s passion for music goes far and beyond the music which he makes, he wants the world to know that music, any type of music, can bring people together, and it can uplift people up when they are feeling down.

Listen to music…when you feel down listen to music, any type of music. I always listen to the radio … to any kind of music. In my productions I have a specific genre, but I like to listen to everything.
