About Michalis Philippou

Life Membership 2015

Michalis (aka Mike Polaroid) has been a long serving member of the Fresh 92.7 team. A stalwart on air almost since the birth of the station he has been a core presenter on one of the nation's longest running prime time dance radio shows in Australia Release which now airs to multiple radio stations and digital networks. A truly passionate member Mike has worked tirelessly on behalf of Fresh 92.7 to raise its profile and build its reputation as a leading dance music station. His contribution has been far and wide not being limited to only on-air activities, he also regularly assists with original web articles, and shoots Fresh events for web galleries, videos and promotions as well as getting involved in our OB's.

Mike is also a hard-working producer and DJ, respected among industry heads as the guy to go to for content & concepts, he has a unique ability to think both in and out of the box, booth or studio, constantly delivering new levels of expectation for all he does.

An Adelaide native brought up on the early 90's hip hop scene and a decade in NYC West Village, Mike is still a huge hip-hop fan, and though he is not a hip-hop DJ per say, the early influence of the turntable, drum machines and sampling are still evident in his performance and production around the dance of today. He's also is not a purist, his DJ sets are varied and take in many different influences and styles and this is no doubt a key reason why Release continues to be one of Fresh 92.7's most popular and influential shows.

You can catch Mike along with Tom Pierre and DJ Reelax every Friday 6-8pm.
