Micah McNelly

Micah McNelly has been crate digging for the last 15 years. Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Micah spent his early years consuming audio from the likes of Nitzerebb, Frontline Assembly, Kraftwerk, and early Delerium. Micah has been a multi-instrumentalist from an early age. He was introduced to electronic dance music through his involvement in the early 90’s online tracker scene. In the late 90’s Micah attended underground music events in both Portland and Seattle, eventually coming to the realization that he had an intense love for house music.

Micah moved to NYC in 1998 and spent the next few years focused on educating himself on the house sound through the attendance of parties in and around the city. He started playing out in 1998 at loft parties and small club events. Moving back to Portland in 2001, Micah became a regular at clubs and one-off events.

In 2012, Micah launched the party series FOLDING|SPACE, which has been focused on providing a consistent platform for deep house, slomo, nu-disco, balearic, and deep techno. Micah has been producing electronic music for personal consumption over the the last decade and due to new found inspiration is actively producing music for release.

Micah has forthcoming release on Portland’s own Nude Photo Music and will be performing as part of the Nude Photo Music / FOLDING|SPACE event on Saturday Night @ Refuge.
