This Saturday sees special guest Mickey Moonlight of French label Ed Banger Records laying down some sci-fi beats at monthly night Body Talk. Mickey (aka Midnight Mike) has DJ'ed for years and played for some of our favourite people and at some of our favourite nights, like Optimo and the late but legendary Trash. Now, as a producer, he continues to wow us with his fresh sounds. We asked Body Talk creator Rokk to get the lowdown from the man himself...
