"I didn't have any plans to make another one, then I was hanging out with Lindstrom in London and he told me he'd been listening to Disco Circus a lot. As he is the reason I make music, I decided to make another"
It's been a rollercoaster year for Mighty Mouse so far; currently on tour in the North America he has an Australian and further North and South America tours to come in the first half of 2013. He's just released his latest single 'Love Is Gonna Lift You Up', which has already gained support from Tensnake, Mouse T, Mark Moore, Horsemeat Disco, Drop Out Orchestra and the Supermen Lovers.
The biggest story of 2013 so far though has been his new band 'Du Tonc' with Matt Van Schie from Australian band Van She. 'Darkness' featured on Tensnake's Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, The Magician's Magic Tape, hit number 2 on the Hype Machine and has almost 100,000 plays on Soundcloud.

Friday 29th March 2013 - Club 69, Ghent (Belgium)

A regular in the Hype Machine top 10 scoring countless number ones, Mighty Mouse quickly became an online star putting his unique touch on tracks by Gorillaz, Madonna, Gill Scott Heron, Prince, Kate Bush and his now infamous re work of ABBA. Press and peers alike lauded Mighty Mouse's Disco Circus compilation series, with Mixmag putting the first two volumes in their top 10 compilations of the year.
