What is This Website?
Well, in short, micoyc.net is a multipurpose website.
"M.I.C.O.Y.C" used to stand for "Mitchi's International Chain Of YouTube Channels" Mitchi being me. But the branding has grown into the 3D Printing industry and primarily produces electronic music.
It is the place I link to anyone asking what my YouTube channels are, as I have too many to list. (All active.....Somewhat!)
I also use this place to hold downloads to software I've made, a blog about my strange experiences, friends who requested pages about them so they don't have to remember big YouTube URL's, but it's also just a fun side-project. The list of functionalities goes on but there isn't time to talk about it right here. It's essentially my safe-space, and digital home.
Of course this is a great place to find out information about me, find my social medias, and other stuff that people don't care about. Thanks for visiting!
What is M.I.C.O.Y.C?
M.I.C.O.Y.C is a business ran my MitchI Bell.
The main task is producing electronic music, though it also offers a 3D Printing on-demand service for residents of Halesowen and Dudley, UK. (Specified areas only)
The business is also constantly cooperating with other music artists to collaborate and produce music to the greatest quality possible.
Other services include game development, video editing, videography, photography, and affordable PC building.
While not having a large audience, M.I.C.O.Y.C also creates video reviews on products. Usually, these are done out of the want to assist consumers in purchasing good quality items, but sellers can get in touch and ask for reviews on their products.

Why so many channels?
I found out that having all different videos on just one channel that is themed around one thing tends to get the viewers worked up. People like consistency. So I decided to have several channels which people could subscribe to only the ones they are interested in.
If you click here, you can see what all the channels are there for, and how they all get used.
My name is Mitchi. I'm a music producer with autism living in the UK. Pretty standard geek, as much as I hate stereotyping. I like computers and enjoy almost anything technology related. I have Asperger's Syndrome (a form of autism) which means I take things literally, and my brain works very differently to somebody not on the spectrum. My biggest passion is unclear as of yet, but I enjoy creative work. This includes books, music, and programming.

Some are grey and some are black! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Black is for personal accounts, grey is M.I.C.O.Y.C related or business accounts.

Formerly known as 'SurviveAlive', MICOYC Makes was the first channel I ever ran. It used to consist of me, my brother, and my friend. However, they lost interest pretty quickly and started their own channels. So I adopted the channel as my own. And has been doing very well ever since. This was a gaming channel for 6 years, but as I grew up, I rarely play video games at all now. So I'll be using this to log my creative projects.
In other words, subscribe to this one if you want to know how I make my many other videos.
This is a channel made for music. The main series here is known as 'Custom Songs'. Typically, this is HandsUp. (Otherwise known as 'Eurodance', or 'Dancecore'. It's basically techno) I also do things like parodies, remixes, and sometimes little mashups. To celebrate special occasions. This is where you can find my music on YouTube, though if you click here, you can find me on all major streaming services. Have fun!
There are numerous things I want to upload but don't want to break the perfect categorisation of the other channels. So visit here if you fancy seeing miscellaneous videos. This is probably outtakes and funny things that happened while making other videos. Can't promise regular uploads but it's a thing if you're interested.
I often changes things that affect all channels. So that kind of thing goes on here. These are M.I.C.O.Y.C related videos that won't make sense if you don't know what M.I.C.O.Y.C actually is.
Of course, urgent things that are going to affect the entire business will go everywhere, but otherwise, this is just for the brand as a whole.
or M.I.C.O.Y.Cn't if you like memes
The future of this channel is uncertain, but at the very least, this is the one I am logged into and post comments with. (Basically because I know that YouTube has all of my recommendations up-to-date)
I used to use MICOYC Music as my main channel, but unfortunately I had gained nearly 1,000 subscriptions. So I figured I'd start a fresh.
Mitchell Bell - Topic
Yep. YouTube's algorithm decided to give me an auto-generated "Topic" channel. Not sure how this works, but it seems to post stuff for me. (Seems to be music related) It may be because I opened a Google Play Music store page, but it appears to not have picked my most purchased / most watched songs. I guess we'll see what it does in the future, but hey. Subscribe to it if you want!
I run a podcasting show with another YouTuber known as "SamDFL". The show is called "MagnaCast" and we used to livestream us talking, or playing games, or even interacting with viewers. Every Saturday on twitch.tv/magnacast at 2pm GMT+1. Unfortunately, we ran out of free time and had to announce the end of the podcast. But, we also run a series called "Rambling" in which we do solo videos of us talking about anything we feel like talking about. So if that sounds like something you're into, then come join us!
I have a younger brother. He has his own channel known as "DonkeySwag2". He had an idea to start up a vlog channel together. And thus, AwkwardEncounters was born. Whenever we go out places or whatever, we usually have our cameras with us. (I use a GoPro, and Ross uses a DSLR) We vlog, and upload to this channel.

M.I.C.O.Y.C & Dan Bull & Grandayy - Topic
Another channel opened when I signed up with my label, Ditto Music. This was created and posts my songs in video form. I'm pretty sure these are available on YouTube Music as well if you have that. I just really wish I could change the picture!
Yep. This was a complete accident but I can't delete it now. It's yet another auto-generated by YouTube thing. But this was created when I initially released my "Robocopyright" remix. The song was originally by Dan Bull and someone called 'Grandayy'. I released the song under all 3 names because I thought it would be polite to credit everyone involved. Oh, how wrong I was! I woke up to a tweet from Dan Bull the next day. Normally that would be a good thing, but he'd attached a screenshot of his Spotify page, which now had my song at the top. For those of you who don't know, I'm autistic. My emotions are always wrong. Safe to say I was stressed to death. So I had to spend the next day trying to work out how to remove a song. I managed to do it for major streaming services, but if you look around, you'll still see accounts under this name on various platforms. Sorry, Dan! I know you're not a huge fan of techno!
First of all, thank you to all the people who designed the logos for all the channels in M.I.C.O.Y.C.
Thank you to Google for designing the MICOYC Makes, Music, and More logos.
Thanks to Dave Gandy for designing the MagnaCast logo.
And thanks to Icomoon for the AwkwardEncounters logo.
Really appreciate it, so big shoutout to all of you!
The M.I.C.O.Y.C logo itself along with the intro and custom animations were all designed by Square. Who I know personally, and I managed to steal the logo before my other friend claimed it. So thanks for the help Square! Really helped with the branding.
Alright, I guess it would be rude not to thank my brother, Ross Jones
He really gave me the motivation I needed to improve my music. otherwise my fear of change would've stopped me, or at least slowed me down heavily from experimenting. So thanks, Ross!
At the end of 2018 I decided to get a new profile picture. So thanks to idrinkbleach for drawing it for me. He absolutely got it spot-on and delivered very quickly.
And finally, big shoutout to syiona, who recorded all of the audiomarks and the charming voice that welcomes you to each video. She was absolutely fantastic to work with and nailed it first try. So I recommend checking out her Fiverr gig if you want your own audio recording like mine.
