Coined by critics a 'sound alchemist' (Le Monde) and a 'primitive futurist' (Almost Cool), Mikhail's music combines innovation with raw emotional expression. His postmodernist genre-bending has led to work with pop queen Bjork, as well as alongside Dj Spooky, early music and classical choirs.

Biography

Greek-born and London-based Mikhail was first spotted by Bjork and Graham Massey who selected him to remix Bjork's music and released it internationally on One Little Indian in 2005. Since then, legendary Belgian label Sub Rosa released Mikhail's solo album Orphica (2007) to critical acclaim. Coined by critics a 'sound alchemist' (Le Monde) and a 'primitive futurist' (Almost Cool), Mikhail combines musical innovation, electronica, strikingly raw vocal and emotional expression, and postmodern genre-bending. Recent projects include collaborations with world class vocal ensembles including memebrs of The Hilliard and The Tallis Schollars, commissions for PRADA's advertising campaign and remixes by Dj Spooky that Subliminal Kid on his seminal "Sound Unbound" album alongside Aphex Twin, Steve Reich and Sonic Youth.
