Following the huge success of our first Spin Saturday event, Purple Foundation is gearing up for the fall edition with DJ Michael Tank, a Texas favorite. Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 9, when Michael returns to Dallas to heat up the dance floor for us once again. You may remember that his set at Dallas Pride 2012 was a big hit, and we’re excited to have him back. For those of you who won’t be ready to end your night at 2:00 a.m., your $10 cover at TMC will get you free entry into Station 4 after-hours until 4:00 a.m. Be there, and be ready for a great night!
Freedom of expression is the ultimate form of art and in the immortal words of George E. Woodberry “It is not in life, but in art that self-fulfillment is to be found.” No where does this ring brighter than in the talents of Producer/DJ Michael Tank, who continues to be fulfilled from his ability to make others dance by enlightening audiences around the world with his incredible works in the studio and in the DJ booth.
His abilities in the booth have been sought by such great parties and events as White Party Week and Winter Party Festival in Miami, Halloween’s in New Orleans, White Party (Buenos Aires), Purple Party (Dallas), Snowball (Fridae Asia, Singapore), Pride (San Francisco), Splash ( Austin), Carnival (P-town) and Mardi Gras (New Orleans). This award-winning DJ has further honed his skills in such surreal clubs as Cameo (Miami Beach), Palacio Alsina (Buenos Aires), Jungle (Atlanta), Heaven (Querétaro, Mexico), Rich’s (Houston), The Manor (Fort Lauderdale), Oz (New Orleans), Universe (San Francisco) and South Beach Nightclub (Houston) to name just a few. More recently he wowed the floor with an amazing performance at one of the best events of 2011, White Party Week’s Muscle Beach.
Michael’s high standards and detailed perfection in mixing music has earned him multiple residencies throughout his DJ career and amazing opportunities to spin for world renowned events that raise money for the most honorable of causes. Maintaining this skilled integrity has mobilized Michael to keep ahead in such a fast paced market as other DJs have come and gone during the 16 years he has been shaking dance floors. His level of performance has advanced his creative stage and desire to perform. In the world of music production, DJ/Producer Michael Tank has taken a back seat to no one. One of Michael’s collaborations with remixing partner Michael Brown generated his first #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Dance Chart. Jason Walker’s “Set It Free”, on Junior Vasquez’s infamous label JVM, not only shot to the #1 spot, but gave Jason his second #1 song and gave Michael his first sanctioned #1 remix. Other popular projects include Gioia Bruno’s “Why Did You Call”, “Caught Up” by Joa on Seth Cooper’s label Greenlink, Ron Perkov’s “It Doesn’t Matter”, the classic Veronica track “Someone to Hold”, and from Glee, The Warbler’s “Bills Bills Bills”. His latest project with Michael Brown is the R&B hit “Tired” by Kelly Price, which was nominated Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for 2011.
DJ/Producer Michael Tank has only just begun to scratch, burn and spin the surface of his creativity. Michael eagerly awaits his next adventure which will certainly find his audience dancing with delight throughout the evening or morning.
