Mickey de Grand IV
Mickey de Grand IV is a Cuban-American composer and producer from Miami, FL.
In the late 1990s, he began to play in punk bands and toured the Southeast. He found his lifelong interest in composing and arranging for orchestra in high school, leading him to study Orchestral Composition and Arrangement with a concentration in Schoenberg’s Serial theory of Music and Riemanian Theory of Music at City College of New York. Following his formal training, Mickey founded the label Cosmic Chronic, where he began cutting records under several project names.
Mickey started the band Psychic Mirrors in 2010, ultimately gaining the attention of Peoples Potential Unlimited and Red Bull Music Academy (where Mickey spent October 2014 participating in RBMA Tokyo). Notable releases include I Come For Your Love (2011), Charlene (2013), and LP Nature of Evil (2016). Psychic Mirrors have toured the U.S, Canada and Europe, growing a loyal following with their modern Caribbean sound.
Following the release of Psychic Mirrors’ debut LP, Mickey began producing tracks for artists such as SZA, ABRA and Denzel Curry, serving as Executive producer on Curry’s critically acclaimed TA13OO (2018). He also composes for film and television, with his music appearing on HBO, ESPN, PBS, ViceTV, and others.
Most recently, Mickey cofounded Amnisia. Its first project was the second LP from Psychic Mirrors—Ophilia—released on July 2nd, 2021.
