As a chart-topper since 1988, DJ Magic Mike is far from a new comer, but one who has always managed to remain a bit more underground. The Orlando, Florida native is even noted as “The Best Platinum Artist You Never Heard Of” in Vibe magazine. Beginning in 1989, the initial goal of the DJ and his comrades was to simply sell twenty to thirty thousand copies in hopes of seeing their names on the Billboard charts. So the crew released DJ MAGIC MIKE AND THE ROYAL POSSE. “Although we knew we were hot, we never really took time out to count the rising sales. However, one day one of our employees brought it to our attention after counting the numbers that the album had sold over 500,000 copies. Completely shocked us. I was having fun anyway, and it didn’t really hit me until the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) came down and present us with gold plaques at an Orlando concert, that’s when everything became real,” explains Mike. Selling over a million copies, the album skyrocketed to Platinum status.

A year later, Mike made history with the release of BASS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME. The LP marked the first time a completely instrumental LP reached gold status. Soon after, in collaboration with the group Vicious Bass, DJ Magic Mike spawned yet another gold hit with the single “It’s Automatic.” The following albums, AIN’T NO DOUBT ABOUT IT and BASS: THE FINAL FRONTIER both received gold plaques as well. By consistently presenting top-notch efforts to his fans, the famed Boy Wonder could do no wrong. DJ Magic Mike monopolized the airwaves with club anthems such as “Drop”, “Magic Mike Cutz The Record” and “Feel the Bass.” In all, Mike has sold in excess of 5 million records worldwide with 1Platinum and 6 gold LP’s to his credit.

As the years progressed, the scratch master became a visual legend, as one of the trio DJ’s for Coca-Cola, an impressive coup in television commercials. Mike was so captivating that others soon came knocking. Pioneer Electronics offered Mike a lucrative deal including national advertising in every mainstream magazine. That deal led to a current endorsement deal with Shure Electronics. Shure signed Mike because they said he is the only DJ they knew of that can spin music in every genre. That is unheard of with most DJ’s because most of them fall within certain music types. As the untouchable DJ in Florida, Mike has played to crowds ranging from 2000-20,000, including his infamous holiday weekend shows at House Of Blues (Downtown Disney) where he has sold the venue out consistently for the past 12 years. His credibility within the music industry has led to more strategic alliances with such music notables as Sir Mix A Lot, Poison Clan, Shortkut from the Skratch Piklz, MC Shy D, 12 Gauge and countless others. DJ Magic Mike is also accredited as being the first artist of bass music achieving gold and platinum status as certified by the RIAA.

David A.R. White was raised in a small Mennonite farming town outside of Dodge City, Kansas, and at the age of 19 moved to Los Angles to begin what would quickly become a successful career as an actor, writer, director and producer.

After co-starring for 3 years in the hit TV show, Evening Shade with Burt Reynolds and many other roles in television and film, David became a founding partner in the film distribution/production entity PURE FLIX.

Today, Pure Flix maintains its position as the number one faith-based studio, producing and distributing more faith-centered films than any other studio. Likewise, David has become one of the most prolific actors/filmmakers in the faith-based arena.

To date, David has starred in close to 20 feature-length films, which have entertained unprecedented success worldwide. Some of his film credits include: Revelation Road 1 & 2, The Black Rider, SIX…the Mark Unleashed, The Moment After 1 and 2, In the Blink of an Eye, Hidden Secrets, Holyman Undercover, Run On, Marriage Retreat, Me Again and Jerusalem Countdown, a film adaptation of the best-selling book.

In 2012, David produced and starred in the UP original film, Brother White which not only co-starred David’s real life wife, Andrea Logan White, but earned him a Cable FAX Program Award nomination for Best Actor. At the TCA’s that year, David received rave reviews and charmed the critics with stories of his Mennonite upbringing, likening it to the Amish, but with electricity.

In 2014, David produced and starred in God’s Not Dead, the #1 independent movie of the year, and Pure Flix’s biggest film to date.

In 2015, David starred opposite Billy Gardell (CBS’ Mike and Molly) in the action/comedy Dancer and the Dame. 2015 also saw the release of Pure Flix’s Do You Believe while production on God’s Not Dead II begins in May.

David’s passion has always been to further the Christian faith-based genre with excellence in every way. His love for the Lord has governed the projects he attaches himself to. David and his wife live in Los Angeles with their three children.

The Island,” based on the hit Shine TV-produced Channel 4 U.K. series of the same name, doesn’t include any of the usual reality show trappings. There are no prizes. No eliminations. No winner. No camera teams. The entire series is filmed by the men themselves. The six episodes will show 14 American men isolated on a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs and minimal survival tools, committed to filming every moment themselves.

These 21st-century American men, who are accustomed to roofs over their heads, restaurants and the benefits of technology, are stripped of all modern conveniences and catapulted back to the basics. They must hunt for food, source water, erect shelter, build community and try to survive using only their strength, determination and know-how. All of the men, including a stay-at-home dad, a trauma surgeon, a firefighter and a criminal defense attorney, have something to prove to themselves and each other. This experiment takes them to the very edge of human endurance. They will test their physical, mental and emotional limits and fight for their very existence.

“The Island” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and Bear Grylls Ventures. Bear Grylls, Eden Gaha, Michael Brooks, Holly Wofford and Delbert Shoopman serve as executive producers.
