Michael Woods

Genius can be measured in a number of ways ability, originality and accomplishment. In Michael's short career he has managed to touch on every cornerstone, leaving glimpses of his musical competence and motivation to better the quality of music being distributed. This has not gone unnoticed as DJ's like Pete Tong have jumped at the chance to document Michaels rise, featuring him on shows such as Radio 1's 15 minutes of Fame.

From Argentinean & Guyanese decent, he was born and raised in Hackney London which he still calls home running his studio from there. Classically trained in a range of instruments at an early age provided Michael with a catalogue of creative skills including the keys - which he learned to play at the tender age of just 3, guitar, drums and trumpet, practically making him a one man band. When he wasn't in the studio messing around with Cubase developing his graft, he would be found at Pimlico's Trinity Music College where he contracted a love for musicality often using his spare time orchestrating with the percussion section of the London Symphony Orchestra. Earlier achievements include the Michael Woods Remix of Energy 52's Café Del Mar which held pride of place on the acclaimed Chilled Ibiza Gold Album and is a prime example of the ever growing popularity of the Woods marque, as it fails to cease from habitual play and is still considered as a classic among DJ's and fans alike.

Collaboration's with the likes of Chris Lake on Domino's are proof of his skillful production abilities but not the only examples of his talent which is supported by the many established artists who have hired Mr Woods to renovate their sound into a style which emulates Michael's point of view. Remixes like Feels Like A Prayer on Toolroom Records, Deadmau5's Strobe on mau5trap, Deadmau5 & Chris Lake with I Said as well as the more mainstream artists: Adele, Nate James, Xenomania signing Gabriella Cilmi, The Temper Trap, Way Out West and more recently, Estelle (I Can Be A Freak) have all turned to Michael to help send shockwaves through the music world with their sound, upping his status as a respected artist track after track. His ability to re-work music with an exceptionally sharp ear for quality production has left him in high regard with many artists and labels across the industry with direct Tweets from the likes of Tiesto hailing his skill as one of the many examples.

Diffused Music has become a major priority after he founded the label back September 2008. Using it as a tool to release his perfected sound the label has seen numerous admired records drop from its hands; Yemba, Dropzone and the Envolver EP. As Michael's career continues to escalate he has lined up countless events to counteract the current success, touring with Deadmau5, setting a number of UK based gigs and also earning a coveted residency spot at one of the most sought after Plato's in the clubbing realm, Cream's Amnesia in Ibiza. Along with Mark Knights Toolroom Knights events and Pete Tongs Wonderland, the Woods fan base and clientele continues to sky rocket. It is apparent that this is not the height of his creation, but yet only a preview into what will surely be an illustrious career.
