Mike Sheridan's website
Mike Sheridan (featuring Maya Albana)Music history presents several instances of child prodigies, but the phenomenon usually occurs within the established realm of classical music. Danish Mike Sheridan (born October 25, 1991) proves that prodigious talent at an early age can also manifest itself in the modern electronica scene’s more experimental, rhythm-oriented sub-genre.
At the tender age of 15 and still accompanied by a parent, he had already played over 70 gigs at clubs across Europe and released his first 12” EP, ”Alt & Intet”. In 2008, Mike won a Danish Grammy for “Best Electronica Album”. Singer Maya Albana (born 1973) started her career in the band Nice Device and has also released albums in her own name.
“Med små skridt” belongs to the more accessible end of modern Electronica. The sound is surprisingly polished, clean and smooth. The overall impression is certainly one of massive electronic sound effects, but also that Mike Sheridan has fulfilled his musical ambition to use them in his own unique way.
The basic rhythm and huge amount of energy in the bass region are typical of the Electronica genre and this track is no exception. The vocal by Maya Albana sounds very pleasant, but the electronic processing of this track includes occasional “scratch” effects that may take some getting used to if you are not already a hardcore fan of the genre.
