Maksim Dark [RU]
Russian bred, Berlin based Maksim Dark is easily one of the most striking and original techno artists on the current global circuit. An impressive 100+ releases under his belt at a young age, he has been taken under the wings of Oliver Huntemann and Dubfire, proving his place amongst the A-class. In 2013 Richie Hawtin took a strong fondness to Maksim’s productions, with tracks such as ‘Funny Jump’ making their way into most Hawtin performances. Graduating to label great SCI+TEC in 2016, label boss Dubfire introduced Maksim to the world with his ‘ACIDSTAGE’ EP, followed by Maksim remixing Dubfire’s ‘Rabid’ and their collaboration ‘Devil’s Dust’. Inducted into Senso Sounds in 2017, Maksim’s full length EPs ‘Dizziness’, ‘Kinetics’, ‘Movement’ and remix of Huntemann’s ‘Poltergeist’ have him solidified as a modern techno exemplar. Releases on major and top tier underground labels such as Octopus Records, Phobos, Jannowitz, Lauter Unfug, Fierce Animal, Warbeats, his own impressive imprint DENSE AUDIO and many, many more, have earned him worldwide recognition with a dedicated fanbase. Characterised by intense atmospheres, dangerous grooves, mechanical movements, shrouded by dark intentions, the Maksim Dark live performances are a unique narrative experience in futuristic techno-ology.
