His love for and connection with music and the arts began at a young age. He was born into a family of Russian classical musicians. He began learning the piano at the age of 5, making his performance debut at age 7. At the age of 9 he joined the Metropolitan Opera House children’s choir, and began performing principle solo roles at the age of 11.
At the age of 15, he started learning to play the drums and that’s when he discovered his love for house music, surrounding himself with his earliest influences in dance music such as Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Booka Shade, Carl Cox, and Armand van Helden, and later on, Eric Prydz and Axwell.
With his life revolving around music, sharing the decks with some of the biggest names in house music at LAVO NYC, Marquee New York, Day&Night, and Pacha New York, it was only a matter of time until he began creating original productions; his very first track being featured on Ministry of Sound TV to over a million viewers.
In 2015, Misha K experienced a true breakout moment, moving away from several previous production projects, focusing full force on his solo music, leading up to the release of his Bruno Mars Uptown Funk bootleg receiving accolades and Radio/Live support from some of the biggest names in the industry such as Tiesto, Hardwell, Cash Cash, Afrojack, Thomas Gold, Morgan Page, Dada Life, W&W, Don Diablo, Deniz Koyu, Bingo Players, Dannic, Blasterjaxx, Galantis, Cedric Gervais, Fedde Le Grand, Dash Berlin, and many more.
In 2016, Galantis in Misha K joined forces on many massive collaborations including a VIP Mix together of In My Head, Love On Me, and a remix for No Money by Misha K himself. Following that, this year saw handfuls of releases from Misha K including another VIP Mix with Galantis of their hit “Hunter”, official remixes for Cash Cash and Britney Spears, and even original tunes premiered by Hardwell on Hardwell On Air.
Misha K's musicianship, artistry, and attention to detail translate into his productions; creating energetic, moving, and captivating pieces of music that are bound to stay; far beyond just the "now".
