A$AP Rocky & Lil Uzi Shows Are Unforgettable Experiences Thanks to Michael Mauro

The master of stage design talks about his craft.

By //

Michael Mauro may not be a household name, but he’s directly responsible for some of the most remarkable performances in live music. As a visual artist and production designer, he has worked with musicians like A$AP Rocky, Future and 6lack to create engrossing light shows and unforgettable stage layouts for fans around the would. The M99 team, led by Mauro, also work outside of concerts, having created sets for Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert‘s TV shows.

In this HYPEBEAST Impressions clip, we follow Mauro as he creates the eye-catching visuals for Uzi, going from planning and practicing stages in the studio to the live show, where enormous crosses and jets of flame accompany Lil Uzi Vert on stage. As Mauro notes, “we’re just trying to enhance the artist’s visual story with music, and the lighting, and the visuals.”

Take a look at the team’s hard work above and head to M99’s site for more information on the studio. Recently, we joined Joji to go shopping at IKEA.
