Thanks for taking the time to speak with us! We’re excited to get to know you a bit more. For those that don’t know, tell us the origin story of Max.
Sure. It’s an honour for me! Regarding the origin story of Max Aeris, I started making music almost 7 years ago. One day I decided that I can’t imagine my life without music. Throughout all these years I realised that the most important goal for me is to give people emotions with my music. The power of emotions in art is key, priceless. That is why I’m keen on making deep and atmospheric songs, and that’s what keeps me going.
Can you describe how each of your distinctive styles fits into the piece?
I would say that for me it’s quite important to make music out of boundaries and not being afraid of switching genres. I released tracks in such genres as Big Room, Progressive House, Big Room Techno, Future Bounce, and I keep searching for new ideas, regardless of the limitations. The main element in each of these songs is a unique feel and story. I find this identity extremely important.
You seem to be having a big year already, what do you have coming up for the rest of 2023?
I’ve got a lot of songs which I’m working on at the moment. You can expect a few cool collaborations as well as remixes. Can’t tell you all the details, but with some of these tunes I managed to push my productions to the next level, and I’m keeping working on it up to this day. Stay tuned for that:)
Tell us a little bit about the “Call You Out”. What about it inspired you?
I absolutely like this track. I’ve always enjoyed the future bounce genre. As for “Call You Out”, I love the vibey feel that it gives, the energy, driven melodies. These details make you want to listen to it over and over again. Shout out to @SNRSmusic for that!:)
In addition to being different, what else can new producers do to make themselves stand out?
I am convinced that even nowadays there still can be a lot of opportunities and freedom for the new producers. I think that the most important advice I could give is to not be afraid to experiment with sounds. It’s crucial to understand what about a certain song makes you like it. To achieve the understanding of your own approach in making music, it’s essential to broaden your music horizon. Listen to more and more music and point out things you liked in your favourite songs, and that will give you the needed experience.
What was it like collaborating with Olly James and Ozgun?
It was a great experience. These guys are absolute professionals, the process of making “Hooked” was very fast and simple. Absolutely special feeling, knowing that “Hooked” was the second track in my career. You can also hear each of us in that track, and that’s what makes it even cooler:)
If you could collaborate with anyone who would it be?
I would say my dream collaboration would be with @Hardwell. Throughout all these years that I’ve been making music he’s always been and remains the biggest inspiration for me.
Can you share a few words about Deep Waves Music?
Yep, sure! I absolutely love the platform that you’ve built. The Deep Waves Music radio show episodes are very fun to listen to, and the amount of dedication you put into the EDM scene is very impressive. Shout out to you for it, and thanks for having me:)
