Soul Deep is the DJ name used by Mike Dutkewych.
Born and raised in the Detroit area, Mike has always had an affinity for the city’s fine musical exports, the finest of which is undeniably the Soul music of the ’60s. What started as a mere curiosity, and then a modest pile of the singles, soon grew into an expansive collection of Soul, R&B, Jazz, and Early Rock & Roll records from the 1950s-1970s.
In January 2010, Mike launched Soul Deep, a weekly dance party at a neighborhood bar. The night quickly gained notoriety and, before long, a dedicated following of enthusiastic twenty-somethings, many of whom were discovering this music for the first time. Soul Deep ran for 8 wild years until the closure of The Rockery in 2018. You can read more about it in this Metro Times profile.
Over the years, Mike has also had the privilege of spinning records at a variety of events and venues throughout Michigan, including AJ’s Music Café, Ant Hall, Blind Pig, Blossom Heath Inn, Blue Dress Barn, Bookies Bar & Grill, Camp Wathana, Cliff Bell’s, Colony Club, Community House, Crofoot, Detroit City Distillery, Detroit City Distillery, Detroit Comics, Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Yacht Club, Eastern Market, Frank’s Café, Front Row, GAR Building, Garden Bowl, Gem Theatre, Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company, Guardian Building, Joseph Bianca Ballroom, Jumbo’s Bar, Keyworth Stadium, Kreps Apple Barn, Lo & Behold!
