SPIN First Drop Coachella 2022: Michael Bibi

With over two decades in the game, UK-born Michael Bibi has been DJ’ing and producing since he was a kid. He’d accompany his father, a touring blues and jazz artist, from a young age, taking in a range of musical influences. Headlining the Yuma tent at Coachella 2022 and Framework’s Art of the Wild after party were notable highlights of what has been his first major US tour. This summer he’ll also be taking over the iconic DC10 for his Solid Groove Motel season-long residency. Bibi’s seemingly unstoppable rise started in 2018 with the release of Hanging Tree and he hasn’t looked back since. When asked to describe his genre/subgenre within electronic music, he simply calls it “groovy.” We couldn’t agree more.

Step into the DJ booth with Michael Bibi and watch his exclusive SPIN First Drop below. To check out more SPIN First Drops, head over to SPIN TV.


“I don’t really plan my sets too much. I kind of have a rough idea of around 60 to 100 songs that I know I would like to play and then I feel whatever I’m feeling – what the crowd are feeling. It’s very much a two way between the crowd and myself, and then yeah it just comes out.” -Michael Bibi
