Since 2014, when Mikos made a beat for Anderson.Paak’s debut LP, Venice, and co-produced the Watsky single “Whoa Whoa Whoa” (altogether, his collaborations with his former classmate has over 20 million plays on Spotify), Mikos has become known as the go-to producer for folks who want something warm, funky, and maybe a little out-there in their party music. In other words: people who sound like the Bay. In 2016 alone, Mikos produced on nationally acclaimed records like Rayana Jay’s EP Sorry About Last Night; Elujay’s Jentrify; Caleborate’s 1993, Zion I’s The Labyrinth; Rexx Life Raj’s Father Figure and more.
“Start Things New” is a single off Mikos’ first solo producer album, heavily influenced by A Tribe Called Quest and Kanye West, set for release in 2018. He will be featuring a few of his talented friends on the project.
