Max Passante
“I connect with my soul’s purpose when I have a broad array of music at my fingertips and a crowd willing to shapeshift deeply into the dance! I can see the energy of the people rising as their bodies keep them dancing and their joy fills the space. Then.. I am in ecstasy!”

My MUsic

Max uses music as his magic wand and has the incredible ability
to bring high vibrational energy into any space. His love to dance gives him a feel of what the dancefloor wishes and needs.

His sound is a blend of all tempos electronic groovy and organic soundscapes, shamanic tribal afro house, deep and tech, slow and glithcy earthy beats, lyrical subtle melodies and hipnotic loops, that will make your body vibrate, your spirit expand, and your mind still.

Creating journeys navigating from dark sounds to light atmospheres and uplifting melodies. His sets are made mostly “on the fly”, by intuitively reading the energy momentum of the space, with the aim to play and let go the “dj thinking mind” and serve as music channeller.
