Biography

Originally hailing from the East Coast, Mieka Du Franx began to explore underground dance music in the early 90s in New York City, where she found herself plugged into Manhattan’s hottest clubs, at the age of just 15. Mieka’s passion for rhythmic beats began as a young girl, who grew up listening to her father and brother’s drumming. As she matured under the influence of beats, she naturally gravitated towards dancing. Professionally trained from the age of five to the age of thirteen, Mieka practiced ballet, jazz, and tap. As a teenager, she discovered a more fluent style of dance that suited her best, freestyle. Her passions for freestyle dance and music lead her to the clubs, where New York Freestyle and House music were thriving. The clubs lead her to the DJs and the music makers. Her desire for an education doing what she loved opened her eyes to much more to be discovered. From there, she chose formal training at Northeastern University with a major in Music Industry.

After discovering the limitation of formal training, Mieka relocated back to Manhattan where she attended The New School to study MIDI, where she could have hands on training, while at the same time, held business as the Public Relations Coordinator for the infamous Satellite Records.
