Michael Pieterse Music

My name is Michael 'Mike' Pieterse and I have been involved in the music industry on different levels professionally since 2004. In 2006 I officially founded my company Michael Pieterse Music, as the umbrella entity for all my activities within the music industry.

During the course of my carreer as a DJ I have developed myself as a household name within the hardcore music scene as part of Sequence & Ominous.  Under the obvious moniker Michael Pieterse I produce house music which is available on all major platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Beatport etc. Last but not least I am also active as a DJ and producer in the UK Garage scene under the alias Flow State.

Next to DJing and producing my own music I have also been active as booking agent for 6 years at two artist agencies and I have worked as the content manager at an online dance music platform. Since 2019 I am also owner of That Garage Sound, a club event based in Amsterdam. In 2022 I have launched my very own record label Rain or Shine.
