Swedish born DJ & producer Mike Perry and his hypnotic global dance hit 'The Ocean' cast its own wave over the summer music landscape.
With over 375 million Spotify streams (March 2017) it was one of the most played tracks on Spotify in 2016, piercing the upper tier of the global chart as it became a Top 10 mainstay in more than 20 countries worldwide. The song reached #1 with 5x platinum status in Sweden, 3x platinum in Norway, 2x platinum in Finland, platinum in Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Ireland, Australia and Poland, Top 5 in Germany, Norway, Austria, Switzerland and other territories and notching gold status in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Denmark so far. The track became a hit in Perry’s home country immediately after release, conquering the global charts in a mere two months without any major label support. With the follow-up single 'Inside The Lines' featuring singer Casso arriving just in time for fall, Perry became one of the most listened-to/shared artists in the blogosphere. Add to that a Top Ten Spotify smash in multiple countries including Sweden, Germany, Norway, Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Hong Kong and more – the track did not stay unrecognized by global players like Tiësto, who supported ‘The Ocean’ throughout his tour stops in 2016, Kygo, The Chainsmokers and many more... With the highly anticipated ‘Stay Young’, Mike took on the wonderful Tessa from Norway. The outcome was an ode to everyone’s childhood and the compulsion to not grow old.
