The pairing of M.A.X and Crown is a partnership of presumably a couple of years of endless touring as support DJ (M.A.X) and band member Mark Crown (Rudimental Trumpet Player). While its no secret Rudimental’s Crown has a love for DJing, seeing him regularly performing around the globe, putting out mix tapes across his soundcloud platform & sharing studio sessions across his social media. M.A.X on the other side of the coin who has slowly built his reputation from a heavy touring schedule, guest mixes on BBC radio 1 and a regular on the UK festival circuit earning him a sponsorship with Jaegermeister. Its this newly formed duo that’s starting to get the gossip train wheels turning with a debut tour now currently taking place in Asia. ‘Its the Ship’ is first cab of the rank and next up Bali’s newest and much talked about beach club addition ‘Ulu Cliff House’ grand opening that have the pleasure of booking one of the hottest duo’s on the planet right now!
Breaking through as a House and Garage DJ on the infamous East London pirate radio circuit from the beginning of the millennium, M.A.X has witnessed the ever changing electronic music scene and evolved with it under various alias’s. He has been tour support DJ for all of Rudimentals UK tours (most recently the We The Generation Tour Feb/March 2016), and main support act for their 2015 European tour.
Being a regular feature during the last few years at major UK festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Wildlife, We Are Fstvl, Mutiny etc and out in Ibiza for the last 3 years at Venues such as Space, Ibiza Rocks and Pikes has helped cement M.A.X as a respected DJ among his peers and secure a sponsorship deal with Jagermeister.
2015 saw M.A.X break through as a producer with an official remix for Rudimental under his belt, a track on Black butter spread Love, an original and remix on RM records and a remix for Soul Divide on Amplified. Lots of radio support on BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, Kiss FM, Capital Xtra, Rinse and Beats one have helped get his name noticed by the masses.
On the DJ front, 2016 has seen M.A.X play multiple sets in the main room at Egg London, Proud Camden, 338 and Ministry Of Sound to name a few, with guest mixes on BBC Radio 1 Xtra and Rinse FM.
With some of UK’s biggest festivals and major events yet to be announced and sets in Ibiza, Milan and Amsterdam and more European bookings tba, it’s shaping up to be a busy year for this fast rising talent.
