February 12, 2016 – England, UK – According to Stuart Smith, “Lempo is a talent without boundaries. A fantastic DJ, producer and radio presenter – his signature flat cap, unique track selections and wildly inspired performances make him and his Applique Music label one’s to keep an eye on in 2016.”

Mike McGuinness, aka DJ Lempo, began his DJ-ing career in 2006, with residencies at the legendary Manchester clubs Sankey’s and Venus, as part of the Bitch Events team. Within just four years, his sensational sets saw him voted Manchester’s number-one DJ on The DJ List. A regular performer for Ministry Of Sound, Cream and The Warehouse Project, he has supported a stellar line-up of artists including Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki and Skrillex. In addition, he has also presented his own radio shows on Cheshire FM 92.5 (2010) and Manchester’s Unity Radio FM 92.8 (2012).
