In the Rose Room Theater:
Michael’s talents behind the booth have been pursued by such great circuit events as White Party Week and Winter Party Festival in Miami, Snowball in Singapore, Halloween New Orleans and Mardi Gras New Orleans, Purple Party Dallas, San Francisco’s Pride, Rio De Janiero’s Carnaval and New Year’s Eve, Austin’s Splash, White Party Buenos Aires, and Jungle Houston. This award-winning DJ has performed in surreal mega-clubs such as Cameo in Miami Beach, Rich’s in Houston, Universe in San Francisco, Blu in Atlanta, and in his current hometown of Fort Lauderdale at The Manor.
Tank’s abilities have earned him resident DJ status during his career at a multitude of clubs across the nation including Rich’s in Houston, the original Brick in Dallas, Oz in New Orleans, Universe in San Francisco, and currently at the infamous Twist in Miami Beach to name just a few. The high demand of his infectious style took him to new crossroads like blazing into the Seattle scene by performing at The Cuff in 2015. Michael creates hugely popular new remixes, mash-ups and podcasts which are heard across the globe.In the fast-paced world of dance music remixing and production, Producer Michael Tank has taken a back seat to no one. One of Michael’s collaborations with remixing partner Michael Brown generated his first #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Dance Chart. Jason Walker’s “Set It Free” not only shot to the #1 spot, but gave Jason his second #1 song and gave Michael his first sanctioned #1 remix. Since then Michael has continued to make his own versions of the songs we love by going underground and remixing classics ranging from a revamped version of his and Brown’s mix of Veronica’s “Someone to Hold 2016” to Mobin Master’s “Stand Up” to his current remix project of Eddie Baez featuring Aymie’s “Useless Man 2016”, a fantastic song that was generally undervalued when it was originally released and deserved some overdue resurrection.
In addition, Michael is finishing his degree at Florida Atlantic University in Exercise Science and Health Promotion and while he is focusing on his clients as a Personal Trainer and Health Coach, he is continuously pulled back to the music. The rhythms always keep him dancing and he is always drawn back to the beats of the underground. “It’s in my blood to mix music and I’ll never stop dancing! Music and dancing is the soul that keeps the world from falling apart and it will always be a part of me.”
