Swedish born artist/producer/DJ Mike Perry and his hypnotic global dance hit 'The Ocean' cast its own wave over the summer music landscape. With over 290 million Spotify streams it was one of the most played tracks on Spotify in 2016, piercing the upper tier of the Global chart as it became a Top 10 mainstay in more than 20 countries worldwide. The song reached #1 with 5x platinum status in Sweden, 3x platinum in Norway, 2x platinum in Finland, platinum in the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Australia and Poland, Top5 in Germany, Norway, Austria, Switzerland and other territories and notching gold status in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Denmark. The track became a hit in Perry’s home country immediately after release, conquering the global charts in a mere two months without any major label support. Now with a follow-up single arriving just in time for fall, Perry has become one of the most listened-to/shared artists in the blogosphere. Add to that a Top Ten Spotify smash in multiple countries including Sweden, Germany, Norway, Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Hong Kong and more – the track did not stay unrecognized by global players like Tiësto, who supported ‘The Ocean’ throughout his tour stops in 2016, Kygo, The Chainsmokers and many more. Praised for its chill atmospherics and no-frills assault on the senses, the song has leaped into 2016 music consciousness with the same unassuming ambience of its creator Perry. The up and coming DJ went the DIY route from the start. A passionate music lover ever since childhood, he went from being an engineer (cobbling a home studio together while he worked servicing car engines in his native Sweden) to becoming one of the year’s most sought-after global hitmakers, with a visceral attitude leading the way. A diligent producer who draws inspiration from a wide variety of influences, he also acknowledges that his parents’ love of music played a big part in his sonic upbringing. Perry attentively crafted the enticing track for 'The Ocean' and said: “It has a contemporary sound that is easily absorbed. I’m thrilled with the reaction, and the opportunity to share my music around the world.” He fast became an in-demand part of the Festival circuit, as well, with heralded performances at Summerburst, Tomorrowland, and more, performing sold-out club shows all over Europe.
