Bantam Lions (October ’19)

Melodic Distraction Radio


Bantam Lions (known to family and friends as Mike) is a Merseyside-based producer exploring house, techno and experimental sounds.

Over the last 6 years, Bantam Lions has been busy to say the least! Not only has he released two EPs and an LP on Liverpool’s ‘Scenery Records’, his LP ‘Romantic Views’ came out on Dublin’s ‘East Wall Recordings’. Influenced by pretty much anything from the 60s era, Mike has also produced singles for Cleaning Tapes, Videogamemusic and Infinite Pleasure.

Not only has he appeared on Charlie Bones’ legendary ‘Do!! You!!!’ NTS breakfast show, he has also been featured on Benji B’s end of year mixtape. Most recently, he released a new two-track digital only EP in April. Titled ‘Can We Come Together?’, the incredibly catchy number was released on his own label ‘Bantam Lions Recordings’ and can be bought below.

This time, join Mike in our Sunday sanctuary for a blend of ambience, experimental and calming, yes calming, deep techno. Strictly lucid vibes coming though on this broadcast!
