26 year old London based DJ and Producer Maximus Stephanos emerged on to the UK house scene back in December 2015. However, music is not a recent passion for Max with some early home video footage (shown on his Instagram) being taken in 2004 when he received a set of vinyl turntables for his 11th birthday.
“Some of my earliest memories of actually seeing a DJ play live came from seeing my cousin spin Grime instrumentals. I remember being on the top floor of my aunties house and I would just watch my cousin and his mates passing the mic around dropping bars.”
“I wouldn’t say I learnt to DJ on vinyl when I was a kid, especially not around the ages of 15 or 16 as I used to go for months at a time without even touching a deck. However, there’s definitely some element of familiarity with the whole DJ and mixing process that I feel I picked up in my teens”
