Biography

Extreme Trax consists of 2 Belgian trance producers, namely Mike Dierickx (aka M.I.K.E., Push) and Yves Deruyter. The pair are mainly known under this alias for producing a series of tracks in the last 90’s, such as “Final Fantasy” and “Don’t Hold Back”. However, they have also just released “On The Run/The Church”, their first release under this alias since 2001.

M.I.K.E. is Mike Dierickx (Dirk Dierickx before changing his first name officially in the year 2000), a Belgian producer and DJ from the Antwerp area.

Although mostly known for his productions under the aliases M.I.K.E., Push and Plastic Boy, Mike has released hundreds of records under more than eighty aliases and collaborations since 1992 in a wide variety of styles ranging from rave, hardcore, techno, progressive house, trance, electro to even R&B, from accessible commercial anthems to minimalist underground sounds. He also produced tracks for George Vagas, Yves DeRuyter, Marco Bailey, Pascal Quatretemps (Freebase & Crash Guard), Ian Van Dahl and Diabokua.
At the age of 18, Mike handed his first demo tape to the Antwerp record company USA Import Music and released his first record as Vision Act. In 1996 he signed with Lightning Records (the parent company of Bonzai Records) where he worked with most of its artists and achieved his major commercial breakthrough in 1998 with the trance anthem “Universal Nation” under his Push guise

    I found Final Fantasy (Original Mix) an excellent trance production. Qualification 100/100. However I wish there were more tracks like these from this M.I.K.E. alias which I find it wonderful.
