Episode 78 - In 2007, 17-year-old Michael Badal first saw success in dance music when he was discovered by Tiesto, whose support of the single, “Colours” established Michael as a serious contender early in his career. He has since had the honor of officially remixing for Grammy nominated artists such as Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Timbaland, Kelly Rowland, Nadia Ali, Above & Beyond, and many others. In 2015, Michael released his debut artist album, “Now That We’re Human” on Tiesto’s label, which spawned Michael's first headlining USA tour. The album also saw him tie for a Grammy nomination that year for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Over the years, Michael has had the opportunity to play across the country at festivals and clubs, including EDC Las Vegas and Kaskade’s Sun Soaked festival.
Most recently, Michael co-founded a record label with YouTube star and entrepreneur, Matthias. Unlike other record labels, Chill Records brings together traditional music business practices, while also innovating how fans interact with the artists they love.
