    Nobody's cooler than Mike Posner right now.

    Posner's hit single, "Cooler Than Me," stretches the limits of soul into futuristic pop territory with a little hip hop sprinkled here and there for good measure. "Cooler Than Me" is fun, fresh and funked-out in all the right ways. It's because Mike's got one simple goal—to write good songs. His forthcoming debut will no doubt be full of them as well as many surprises to boot. This is the same cat that cut "Cooler Than Me" in his dorm room, in addition to a cavalcade of sharp, smart and sly mixtape tunes.

    Mike Posner sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for an exclusive interview before his packed Los Angeles show at The Key Club. Mike spoke at length about what records shaped him—Outkast, Nas, Nirvana and Pearl Jam, to name a few—his forthcoming album, rocking on the Warped Tour all summer and so much more.
