Pride 2021 (DJ Mix)

A Detroit-area native and New York resident, Mike Servito is known for the intensity of his playing: His sets at No Way Back, an annual after-party at Detroit’s Movement festival, have become the stuff of legend. But for his Pride mix, he opted for sunnier vibes, reaching into his crate and pulling out uplifting classics by Frankie Knuckles, CeCe Peniston, and Inner City. “I wanted to show a deeper, warmer side of my musical taste in house music, with its rich, soulful, and powerful energy,” he tells Apple Music. “[My mix] was inspired by love and pride, fear and struggle—perseverance, keeping your head up, living your truth. House is an empowering, uplifting force that has spoken volumes for decades. Its very necessity was born out of awareness, community, bonding, self-expression, bravery, and pride. And it can bring us together on the dance floor and in life.”
