Misha K Reminds Scene That He Is One to Watch With "Slumber Party" Remix
The last time we checked, his “Slumber Party” remix—a fresh, upbeat take on the Britney Spears track with a Tinashe feature—had amassed 66,417 views on Vevo, the remix appearing on Britney’s official Vevo channel. Published on December 23, 2016, the reimagined Spears song is not far from a milestone 100,000 views, meaning that the mastermind behind the remix is one to watch. His name is Misha K—you’ll want to remember that as the Vevo music video views increase in number, and his career grows accordingly. As his bio notes on his official Facebook artist page, “with the way things are going, 2016 is shaping up to be one stellar year for Misha K.”
Misha K’s name may sound familiar to some of our readers, and not surprisingly so; Misha K caught early attention for his official remix of Galantis’s “No Money,” released on June 17, 2016. The upbeat tones of “Slumber Party” may be traced to another Galantis remix made by Misha K, “In My Head,” (the Misha K & Galantis VIP Remix), elevating the tones from coincidence to signature stylistics of Misha’s sound. Misha crafts a sort of gallery of Galantis remixes, rounding the collection out with another Misha K & Galantis VIP Remix of the Galantis & Hook N Sling tropical hit “Love On Me.” Misha’s latest single is appropriately titled in the wake of his success: “Smilin.” The single appears on the Big Beat Records SoundCloud, linked below.
Reference to Misha’s artist Facebook page offers a glimpse at the life of the up and coming producer. As the site acknowledges, Misha’s passion for music and production finds its roots in his early familial life. The son of Russian classical musicians, Misha was introduced to the piano at age 5, making his “performance debut” two years later at the age of seven. Growth brought various and consistent stages of accomplishment for Misha, who by the age of 9 had joined the Metropolitan Opera House children’s choir. Fast forward six years, and you would find Misha seated before a drum set, nurturing a newfound love for house music. Misha attributes the longevity of this musical interest to influences like Daft Punk, Eric Prydz, and Carl Cox.
The linear achievement of his youth foreshadowed Misha’s present fluency in music production. For Misha, music was never a hobby; it was a lifestyle introduced via family structure and deeply engrained thereafter. Misha has gone on to grace the stages of LAVO (NYC), Marquee (NYC), and Pacha, among others.
Misha is currently focused on the development of his solo career as a musician and producer, a concentration that when combined with Misha’s energy and innovation, is sure to engender further future success. Like ours, Misha K is a name to remember—you heard it at Crust Nation first.
