Michael Brun

Artist bio

Michael Brun spent his childhood on the sun-drenched Caribbean island of Haiti. Born to a Haitian father and Guyanese mother who loved music, Bruns influences stretched from the percussion-heavy Rara and Afro-groove music of his native Haiti, to disco and synth pop. He played guitar and piano from a young age, and took up DJing and EDM production as a hobby at 16 after winning a full scholarship to attend military school in the US, then going on to study Pre-Med at Davidson College.

2015 has been kind to Michael, even after a phenomenal 2014, which saw him close out the Sahara Tent at Coachella as well as play the legendary mainstage of Ultra Music Festival. So far, the young producer has released two party starters, 'Ivory and 'Woo, on his very own Kid Coconut Records, and is gearing up for a summer of new originals and the touring along the festival circuit.
