Mikooshka is a musician and producer from Toronto, Canada.
He combines programming, sampling, and live instruments to create a modern musical sound.
Mikooshka, aka designer Mike Simpson, likes to mix up his music – we’ve got left-field beats, a little electronic rock, reggae/dub, punk/funk, hip-hop and world vibes thrown into the mix.
He has collaborated with musicians from varied genres including John T. Davis (blues/jazz), Jeff Simpson (rock/classical) Paul Schedlich (rock/indie), and singers / performance artists Grey Coyote and Ulysses Castellanos.
In 2009, he released Construct Deconstruct Reconstruct which featured the spoken word rap track (and video) “Coconut Radio.” The 5-song EP will soon be available as a free download.
In fall 2013, Mikooshka will release “Streets are for People,” an EP that features tracks “Alright Kids / The Night Kids,” and “Streets are for People.”
