MAD MAXX LIVE
[ UNITED BEATS RECORDS, PHANTASM RECS, USA ]
Max Peterson has been performing and releasing his unique brand of trance music under various project names since 1998. Max was born in San Diego, California in 1979, and spent most of his teenage years in France. He then developed his production and performance skills in California, Mexico, Spain, and every part of the planet with a vibrant trance scene.
Max’s passion for music began at a young age. Max’s father Gary Peterson is a highly accomplished composer, guitarist, and keyboard player. Gary was a member of influential 60’s-70’s cult band “Formerly Fat Harry”. His band played next to legends such as Pink Floyd, Roy Harper, Third ear band, King Crimson, Fleetwood mac, to name a few… Max’s first tracks were recorded and produced by Gary when Max was just 14 years old.
Upon moving to the U.S., Maxx joined the pioneering trance music collective and record store – The Ion Exchange in Santa Cruz - as co-owner and resident DJ. Maxx moved onto DJ’ing in San Francisco, playing for all the Bay Area's trance venues including the trance collective CCC. He also performed at all the underground warehouse and outdoor events in Northern California. Max quickly gained respect for his stomping deep psychedelic sets. At this time he also toured Canada and other cities in the USA.
In 2000, Max formed the seminal San Francisco trance project BIODEGRADABLE with Samy Guediche of CPU, and Nicolas Oesch of Mekkanikka. In 2001, they released their album Phaser which received great success at the time in the psychedelic scene and became a springboard for all members to launch their successful solo projects.
In 2001, Max joined up with Davina Elmosnino and formed the trance project Sirius Isness. Sirius Isness went on to release more than 150 tracks on prestigious trance labels. Sirius releases 3 full length albums “Resolution of Duality, Breaking the Matrix , Trancefusion” and 1 compilation. The first album was released on Moon Spirits records in 2004, the second on Mind Control Records in 2005, and the third was released in 2006 on Phantasm records, accompanied by their compilation, Mind Your Own Isness. Sirius Isness has traveled to almost every country where trance parties happen. Their most popular destinations are Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Portugal, Greece, Australia to name a few.
Max, then started in his solo project in 2007- MAD MAXX- the result of years of hard work, perfecting a unique sound, embodying all the travels, experiences and parties of the past 14 years. The music is a mix of trance, ethnic and deep sounds, with a strong kick and ominous bass line, an electro touch, emotional chants, and at times nostalgic atmospheres, with a BPM ranging from 140 to 145 in general. All of this sonic mayhem delivered in a whirlwind of psychedelia of course....
MAD MAXX has been delivering his live set to all trance freaks in the world on a weekly basis, and has collaborated with numerous artists…including JOHN 00 FLEMING, PIXEL, AVALON, MENOG, TRISTAN, SPACE TRIBE, GMS, PAINKILLER , POLI, XSI , MASSIVE, S-RANGE, MADNETIC, PUZZLE, PUREPRESSURE, VOYAGER (aka Altom), BIO-GENESIS, MAD HATTER, AUDIO X, BIONIX, MEKKANIKKA , DIGITAL TALK, JOHN PHANTASM, AUDIO HIJACK and more....
Maxx is currently working on a new project called WILD MONKEYS with 2 other band members, Barthelemy Bayona and Jean Marc Segondy from the well known French trance act, XSI. This collaboration is based on a fusion between Psychedelic Trance and Electro music.
The first MAD MAXX album "AFTERWORLD", was released beginning of May 2008 on PHANTASM records! The new MAD MAXX album was released in June 2011 on his new label, UNITED BEATS RECORDS. MAD MAXX 3rd album is coming soon in 2013….
Be ready for another mystical journey into the inner self...
[ PHANTASM RECORDS . MIND CONTROL RECORDS, FRANCE]
X.S.I is a French trance project, made of 2 members, Dj Bio aka Jean-Marc Segondy & Dj Spawn aka Barthélémy Bayona.
Born in Paris in 1978, Jean-Marc was only seven years old when he started playing around with his first synthesizer. By the time he was fifteen, he was already composing various styles of music. After having experimented with many genres of electronic music including house and techno, he began to play trance at parties in Paris as DJ Bio.
Barth was born in St Barthélémy, Guadeloupe in 1984, a French island in the Carribean. He Started dj'ing in friend's parties at the age of 13 years old, as well as playing the guitar. He later came to Paris to study computer engineering, which he was very passionate about. Barth then quickly merged both of his passions, computers and music, and started producing Psy Trance in 2003.
In 2002, Jean Marc and Barth met in the Gibus Club — an infamous Parisian underground club scene where the likes of Daft Punk and Bob Sinclar also emerged from. Both were resident dj's at that time in the club.
After having played together for over one year as DJ's, they decided to take it one step further and to create a trance project together called XSI. The first XSI album (‘Warning Zone’, released on Mind Control Records) was very successful, leading to major bookings in some of the biggest international trance events such as XXXperience in Brazil, Arcadia, and Action in Japan, Freedom Festival in Portugal, Beat Patrol in Austria. They’ve also played in many other countries such as Mexico, Switzerland, Germany, India, Serbia, Russia, Spain, Nepal, England and many more….They released 2 more successful albums, XSI & Friends on Phantasm records, and a collaboration album as TALAMASCA vs XSI, released on Mind Control Records in 2009.
After having collaborated with many different artists such as Mad Maxx, Nomad, Massive, Quality Sound, John Phantasm, Talamasca and many more, their music quickly evolved into the mature and experienced sound they give us today. They have remixed many artists including Robert Miles “Children” and Astrix “Sex Style”. Their new vision for the future includes a mix of many different styles and emotions- all delivered with their polished production.
They also produce and release electro house as French Faction
Jean Marc is also the face behind the new project BIONIX. After having released his first solo album TECHNOID, early 2010 on Mind Control Records, JM has proven his talents to the scene by giving us a brilliant cd full of solid grooves, and a personal touch which comes through the accomplishment of many years of hard work in the studio. His music is always dance floor oriented and never lets you down. His first track, ‘Fighting Shadows’ was an immediate hit amongst dj's in the scene, which was a very good sign for things to come.
[FRANCIA, UNITED BEATS RECORDS, FRANCE & U.S.A]
Wild Monkeys is the new trance project of Max Peterson ( Aka Mad Maxx, Sirius Isness, Biodegradable), Barthelemy Bayona and Jean Marc Segondy ( Aka XSI and BIONIX ).
These 3 guys, have been locked tight into the trance circuit for over 14 years. After having released countless tracks on some of the best labels in the scene, and releasing over 10 albums, they have decided to team up to deliver the brand new sound they call "Wild Monkeys". The name originated from their hit track "Bass Monkeys" from 2009, released as XSI vs Mad Maxx on Phantasm Records.
The music can be described as a fusion between Psytrance and Electro with a dirty edge. While listening, some might feel like they are traveling to never before explored realms of music and soundscapes. Crystal clear production, mature sound and originality, are 3 words which best describe the style of this new band.
Their experience in the studio and fine tastes in paying attention to details is fascinating…
Wild Monkeys, are currently working on their debut album, which is planned to be released end of 2011.
