Mike Williams, labelled as one of Holland's youngest DJ talents, has become an international sensation at only 19 and recently signed with Spinnin’ Records and MusicAllStars Management, adding an exciting new chapter to his career.

At the age of 12 Mike started taking his DJing more seriously and booked several events, sharing the stage with DJs like Martin Garrix, Jay Hardway, Yellow Claw and Alvaro, as well as producing his own tracks.

2015 saw him performing at a variety of festivals as well as launched a successful bootleg of Carly Rae Jepsen’s I Really Like You, which gained over 3 million SoundCloud plays. Mike is also known for his catchy debut release, Sweet And Sour, which was signed to Tiësto imprint (and Spinnin’ sublabel) Musical Freedom.

Initially going round as an ID track, the record quickly gained DJ support earlier this year, getting played by major artists like Tiësto, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Oliver Heldens, Afrojack, R3hab, Firebeatz and Axwell.

To add to the fun, catch adrenaline filled activities, from boat riding, wet biking, wake boarding, tubing, skiing, as well as chilled activities such as camping, braaing, fishing and of course, partying all day long!
