“There are few words to describe MIME’s unconventional rise”DJ Mag
Today, the New York based, quickly rising producer and DJ MIME releases his new single “NOT IN LOVE,” featuring award winning, platinum singer songwriter Jantine. This release precedes his exclusive live set on SiriusXM’s broadcast of Electric Zoo, Friday September 4th, where MIME will play “NOT IN LOVE,” spin fan favorites and premiere new, unreleased tracks.
Jumping from the studio to the DJ booth, MIME is known for transforming his unique take on melodic house music into electrifying performances for fans across the globe. Musically, MIME delivers the perfect balance between commercial dance music and hard club tracks, as heard best on his summer anthem “SRY,” which garnered over half a million plays on Spotify since its release in January.
“NOT IN LOVE” also follows the success of his first collaboration with singer/songwriter Jantine, “LIFELINE.” Their collaborations are proof that the two clearly know how to join forces to create masterfully crafted, electronic pop songs. A continuous flow of energy with its percussive build up and explosive peaks, “NOT IN LOVE” paints the story of the moment one person realizes that it’s time they go their separate ways.
In regards to tempo, “NOT IN LOVE” deviates from MIME’s typical, high energy electronic tracks. In fact, it was produced at 100bpm – the slowest tempo he’s ever released, yet it still has that significant bass-line, driving the track and making it feel that much more energetic. According to MIME, this is definitely one of his favorite tracks he’s ever produced.
“I really wanted to bridge dance and pop, and also add some alternate rock vibes with the drums and tempo. One of my favorite parts in the track is when the distorted phone vocal leads up to the drop. Overall, I’m really happy and excited for this record.”
It is extraordinary to see an independent electronic music artist emerge this quickly and become so in demand. Since his debut performance at Electric Zoo last year, MIME has released 11 new tracks – all under his imprint AlterEGO, an independent label he started with his team. MIME’s fan base has grown immensely throughout 2020, and the hype around the emerging DJ and producer is reflected in his social media numbers, as his instagram following has more than doubled.
“I feel in the past year I have really been able to connect with my NY roots and the fans here, and it almost feels like we are all one big friend group that talks all the time,” said MIME.
Every artist has a story behind the mask… One minute shy and introverted, the next outgoing and funny, MIME realized there was a contrast – black & white, yin/yang – to his full personality which was best expressed through the art of MIME. A totally DIY artist, MIME has made a name for himself – It’s been a rapid climb for MIME, and his trajectory shows no sign of slowing down. MIME may be silent but his music speaks volumes, and it’s saying he’s one to watch.
Rapid rising electronic artist MIME has played with some of the world’s biggest DJs, including Marshmello, Benny Benassi and Tchami and gained support from international superstars like Hardwell, Dillon Francis and Laidback Luke. MIME has been making monstrous strides up the ranks of DJ culture with outstanding performances across the globe including Shanghai, Las Vegas & New York, and is being sought-after for top-shelf remixes by major artists. A self-taught producer, MIME is also self-made and on a meteoric ascent. His first booking as MIME was in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock in August of 2016 playing for a few hundred people after promoters direct messaged him after discovering him on Soundcloud. Only a few days after that, MIME headlined a show at Coliseum in White Plains, NY, playing to an audience of nearly 1000. A few months later in September of 2017, he was playing to thousands at Storm Festival in Shanghai after a talent booker direct messaged him via Instagram while he was at Miami Music Week.
