Prior to being professionally known as MaxDoctor, Max has started his musical life as a local radio DJ in the early 80’s. His radio music programs, broadcast from one of the local stations, were some of the most popular in his native Sicilian city. Way ahead of his time, he was most influential in the late 80’s and early 90’, bringing house music to a wider audience in a mostly conservative Sicily and Italy.
Max’s musical experience began to grow as he travelled regularly between Malta, England and Switzerland, where he found his followers. Ready to absorb his style of electronic music which he interweaved with tribal sounds to complete his style. A genre, sublimely mixing two very different styles, giving it uniformity in an original way.
Max’s early performances remind very much of traditional electronic music. People like Kraftwerk and Jean Michel Jarre have played a big part in forming Max’s musical development. Geographically however, (Sicily being Max’s birthplace), his direction as a musician was influenced heavily by Arab/African tribal sounds too.
Not being of African origin himself, but the lifelong geographical proximity to the African continent however, continued to mold his music, leading him to discover ever more rhythms of the vast continent. The fascination for tribal music grew during Max’s travels and made him appreciate its origins.
Later Max underlined and fortified these influences with extensive travels around the world. South America has been one of Max’s destinations, which added more to his already vast musical knowledge and eclectic collection. Over the years, MaxDoctor has gained a rounded musical maturity and experience, rarely seen today. Tirelessly researching new sounds and transforming them into new musical experiences is what Max does best. Elchalome is a prime example, inspired by tribal house in combination with electronic music, revisiting magical places, to underline Max’s motto: Music is life, and life is music.
