Max Maxwell  

Genre: Psy Trance
Description: Max Maxwell

Originally one third of pioneering group, Matipo Pyramid, Max has been making tunes on his own now for 15 years. He was involved in the emergence of dance culture/parties in New Zealand, mainly through events in the Nelson/Golden Bay area: after returning from travels in India (with much time spent in Goa) he became involved in the Entrain Parties which evolved into The Gathering, New Zealand's largest outdoor party, attracting over 12,000 people at its peak.

Having gone to Otago University at the time the "Dunedin Sound" emerged, Max now feels this is influential in his musical style. He makes music to have an uplifting effect on the listener, doubtless helped by the fact that his home studio looks out over the ocean. Max has been trying to add an element of soul to his electronica style, through playing guitar and incorporating other local musicians into his music.

His debut album "Continuous Play" was released in January 2001 and over the last 5 years Max has been playing out live with Carmel Courtney and Sam Hopley. They have played all the major outdoor festivals around NZ and their debut album is due out later this year. Max has also remixed Trinity Roots and Pitch Black.
