My name's Mic Boogie. I'm a raw lyrical MC from Toronto Canada. My music and lyrics wil have you humming for days. Catchy hooks and banging beats are the staples to my musical style.

Biography

Born and raised in Oshawa, 30 mins outside of Toronto, Michael “Mic Boogie” Lamourie grew up in a blue collar world defined by hockey, classic rock, and General Motors.

From an early age, it was clear that his love for Hip Hop music and culture, bolstered by musical groundbreakers like Grand Master Flash & the Furious Five, the Boogie Boys, and Run DMC, Mike’s interest spread from what the music meant, to how the music was made.

In the time he didn’t spend playing basketball and football in high school, Mike surrounded himself with local MC’s and producers, building his talent and skills as a lyricist, producer, and entertainer.

Mentored in production by local DJ Rodney “Rod C” Woodman, Mike soon moved on to writing his own rhymes, and developing his style.

Mic Boogie is the product of the curiosity, passion, and dedication that Mike Lamourie brings to his music, mixing the sounds of 60s and 70s classic rock with the style and flair of 80s Hip Hop. Production that can shake the room mixed with a laid back delivery that’s equally at home attacking current events and hyping the crowd.

A harsh dose of reality, a comic twist, and a guarantee that you’ll want more are the calling cards of Toronto MC Mic Boogie.

Set List

A typical set can be anywhere from 10-25 mins depending on the venue and event. For a 10 min short show I combine 4 songs that are up beat and for sure to get people interested quickly in my stage show. I would normally start with "Everybody's Doin It!" Performing about 1.5 - 2 mins of the song up to a bridge section and then go directly into "Stray Cat Strut" which is a double timed rap styled track. It's a short two verse song that leads into "You Should" a high energy club banger which features an upcomming canadian r&b sensation Renny Holladae (Shake Dat, produced by Boi 1Da). From "You Should" I would end off with my 2nd single and video release of "Good Look". A longer set time would allow me to include a few more songs off the album as well as break dancers or having some of the artists who collaborated on the album be apart of the show.
