Max Maxwell

Bio

Max Maxwell has been a pivotal figure in New Zealand's electronic music scene since the early nineties. He played a significant role in the Entrain and the Gathering parties, performing with the co-founded psytrance band Matipo Pyramid, releasing a self-titled album.

In 2001, Max's solo career took off with Continuous Play, earning him a nomination for the Best Downbeat Album Award at the BFM Music Awards. The early 2000's also saw his remixing prowess recognized with a nomination for Best Remix for Trinity Roots' Just Like You at the BFM Music Awards in 2002.

Max's musical palette spans genres like downbeat, drum & bass, house, and hip-hop, showcasing his commitment to pushing boundaries. In July 2023, Max celebrated Badgernomics, his third album in four years, debuting at number 7 on the NZ Album charts. Over the last four years, in addition to the three albums, he released numerous singles and remixes, highlighting his continuous evolution.

Collaboration is at the core of Max's exploration, from Matipo Pyramid to enduring partnerships with Carmel Courtney and Tyson Smith, and collaborations with Module, among others. Over the last 30 years, he graced festivals worldwide and in New Zealand, appearing in London alongside Pitch Black and Freq Nasty in the early 2000's. He performed at renowned venues like the Vienna Dub Club, opened the Rainbow Serpent festival in Melbourne twice, and played at all major festivals in New Zealand from Splore to Parihaka Peace Festival and the Kaikoura Roots Festival back in the day.

Over the last year, Max has released an album and nine singles, including a collaboration with Module, contributing to his ongoing influence on New Zealand's electronic music scene. He rates his new album, Badgernomics, as one of his finest works to date.

Max also works as a mix/mastering engineer incorporating high end outboard gear alongside state of the art Mastering software.
