DJ Phatmike

DJ Phatmike is one of the best DJs in Boston’s night life. DJ Phatmike started after frequenting dance nights at Axis and Manray. He became friends with many of the DJs and promoters in the area, but it was DJ Tym Ryan who talked him into promoting for the legendary Spin Cycle. Since then he has never wanted to do anything else. He has spent more than ten years in the industry - from organizing and DJing at Defmatch, a long-running weekly electro and breaks night, to a stint as the Friday weekly DJ at the Phoenix Landing in Central Square. In 2006, DJ Phatmike began Boston's first 90's night at the Common Ground in Allston, sparking a five-year (and counting) weekly Friday juggernaut nominated for Best Dance Night in the Phoenix's Best of Boston.

My So Called 90's Night is Boston's first and longest-running 90's night. It has received accolades from Boston Globe, the Metro, the Phoenix, and other local media. DJ Phatmike mixes everything from No Doubt to Spice Girls to Ice Cube and beyond to keep the dance floor ablaze every Friday night. That one-hit wonder you sang along to in middle school, that rock ballad you used for your class song, and that dance anthem that played when you first stepped foot in a club are all par for the course.

Now Mike is bringing the party to Saturday nights at the Common Ground Millenium Party. The Millennium Party is what happens after we party like it's 1999. After we emerged from Y2K with our nuclear weapons and personal electronics intact, a new era dawned. In this futuristic frontier, Outkast, the Strokes, Gorillaz, and Justin Timberlake ruled the airwaves. Let DJ Phatmike be your guide back to the days when the Neptunes wrote almost everything and your cell phone could only make phone calls. Saturdays at the Common Ground, The Millennium Party is guaranteed to pump your nostalgia meter up to 11.
