Don't let the title "Chillage" fool you into thinking Mick's music only ventures into the Chill out/ambient arena while some of his music lies comfortably within these genres he is also quite prone to a bit of techno, electro, IDM and deep house also..

Mick Chillage has been producing various strains of electronica since 1996 and is one half of Dublin based radio DJ's The Chillage Idiots who have been playing a wide range of music within the spectrum of electronica on Dublins XFM. His Influences are wide ranging from John Barry to Kraftwerk to Eno to Larry Heard & beyond.

Mick is quickly becoming one of the most prolific electronic artist in his native country of Ireland focusing mainly on CD album releases in recent times.

His distinct sound combines atmospheric soundscapes and melancholic melody which he prefers to create from scratch rather than sampling someone else's work.

So far Mick has released material on Pete Namlook's legendary Fax records in both solo and collaboration with Lee Anthony Norris as Autumn Of Communion.

Mick released his debut CD album "Tales From The Igloo" in 2009 on Dublin based label Psychonavigation. Other labels he's released on are, Txt, Carpe Sonum, Anodize,

Nice&Nasty and more.

2014 will see the release of a full Electro album "Waveshape Fiction" under the alter ego of "The Shape" on Anodize recordings.
