Mix Master Mike

Here's a little pop quiz for you: Try to name at least three DJs behind indie bands or hip-hop acts who have had solo careers. Go ahead, we'll wait. One of the few who enjoy as much fame as the band he spins for, Mix Master Mike (known to his momma as Michael Schwartz) is an easy inclusion, as he was even sometimes known as the fourth Beastie Boy. The Brooklyn rap trio's DJ (post-DJ Hurricane) was one of the first to make a full-on instrument of the turntable in a Billboard-charting hip-hop act, and Mike will return to the Twin Cities after eight years away to show off those skills at Epic this week. Ch-ch-check it out. With DJ D.Mil, DJ Ben Clear, and DJ Kor. 18+. (Photo by Fabio Venni)
