Mark Maxwell used to put on steel capped boots and hi-vis clothing to go to work each day. Whether it was under a train or on top of a mountain of coal, he only found time to write music in those few hours after work. At the end of 2014, he hung up those boots and committed to a life of music. Mark Maxwell is Australia’s latest addition to the unrelenting house music scene.
Mark was selected for the Red Bull Music Academy in 2014 and whisked off to Tokyo where his eyes were opened to a whole new world of music. He came home feeling empowered, excited, and also pretty nervous about his decision to start releasing music under his own name.
2015 saw Mark release two originals, remixes and perform across stages at the Splendour in the Grass and Listen Out music festivals. With his most recent release, “Say It Again” being well received by both fans and DJs, Cavemensound.com said, “It’s driving, sun-drenched atmosphere is sure to have you mesmerized and shuffling to the groove in no time”.
Powering into 2016, Mark Maxwell began the year with the release of two remixes for YesYes Records and Respect Music and with a string of originals due later in the year, he will continue to shape his identity and cement his place in the global house music scene.
