From: UK
Max Graham

Producer and composer, Max Graham, is a multi-talented artist who has wowed club goers around the world and gained the respect of his peers with his diverse, but distinctive blend of dance music. Through incredible skills and his intense work ethic, Max has risen from humble beginnings to become a recognized name worldwide. Max is currently enjoying success in the UK charts, with his smash hit, Owner of a Lonely Heart and in clubland worldwide with his vocal hit I Know You’re Gone featuring Jessica Jacobs.

With talents across the musical spectrum, Max is probably best known for his DJ skills. While the press has tried to pigeonhole him, Max’s sound remains indefinable. He has the rare ability to refreshingly combine pure house music with his own favourite tracks from dance music genres such as: progressive, techno, trance, disco and beyond. Max’s trademark is a roller coaster ride of funky basslines, energetic rhythms and uplifting melodies.  During this ride you are sure to hear a selection, of Max's own productions, which include over 30 original tracks and 20 plus remixes.

In 2000, when Max began producing music, he showed potential and promise along with unnervingly solid talent, almost immediately. His first hits Airtight and Tell You propelled Max onto the international scene, but not before he had spent the previous ten years building his skills in the unlikely house music city of Ottawa, Canada. Although Max was born in the UK, he lived in Spain, NYC and LA before settling in Canada in 1989. Starting out as a hiphop/scratch DJ, Max discovered house music in 1994 and was hooked. Within months, he and his friends had set up their own night, which led to the opening of the now legendary Atomic nightclub. Max’s weekly 6-hour sets, at Atomic, were pivotal in Canada’s dance music evolution.

Early highlights of Max’s career include being invited to mix the fourth installment of the legendary Transport mix CD series. The success of Transport and the subsequent world tour, in 2001, led to Max being voted #23 in DJMag’s coveted Top 100 DJs poll, the highest new entry that year.

After touring heavily for two years, Max took some time off, in 2003, to reflect on the music scene and his place within it. “Things were mad during those two years, I was being booked to play trance clubs when I don’t play trance… I was feeling disjointed and slightly out of control, flying from gig to gig without taking the time to make sure I was making the right decisions.” Feeling uninspired by the direction the scene was going, Max felt he needed time away to reset and rediscover his passion for music.

A trip to Southeast Asia and his relocation to Montréal was all that Max needed to regain his creativity and inspiration. He returned to producing, in 2004, with a new sound and a fresh outlook on music. Max’s new found energy translated into what is shaping up to be his most prolific year to date.  In addition to his worldwide hit, Owner of a Lonely Heart, Max has original material coming out on his own label, Shinemusic, including the vocal hit, I Know You’re Gone, and Time & Again.  Industry leader, Sander Kleinenberg, is also releasing a pair of Max’s original compositions on his label, Little Mountain Recordings. Max is currently working on remixes for heavyweights Bodyrockers and newcomer Leah Woods, the daughter of Ronnie Woods. This summer also sees the release of Max’s new mix CD for DMC. The DMC Mixmag Live series showcases the talents of the best DJ’s in the business.

Max’s rigorous work ethic and uncompromised love for music has afforded him the time to both tour the world weekly and have a prolific production career. As one of the new breed of DJ’s that transcends the current media created trends, he has secured himself an even brighter future.
