60 Seconds with Michael Vinciguerra

Hi Michael, for those don’t know you, please tell us a little about yourself, where you’re from and how you first got into making dance music?

Growing up in Brooklyn, NY I was exposed to all types of music which helped shape my sound – a mix of house music, hip hop, and new wave. I never actually thought I would make dance records. I was a political science major and on my way to attending law school until a life changing night. I walked into The Original Sound Factory (the only one that matters), and everything I thought I wanted in life changed.

Who are your biggest influences?

Junior Vasquez & Victor Calderone.

What’s your studio set up like?

Currently, I am in the process of moving. My studio is my trusty computer.

When In the studio, do you have any rituals or bad habits?
