Max Essa has been active as a DJ and producer since the early 90s, initially releasing music on labels such as Warp Records and Paperecordings and DJing alongside the infamous D.i.Y Sound System.
His most recent work, for labels like Is It Balearic? Recordings, has been play-listed by the likes of Andrew Weatherall and the late David Mancuso, gaining him a devoted following around the world.
2015 saw his first release with a major label in the shape of the ‘Vacations Never Taken’ CD for Victor Entertainment (Japan). The same year also found him completing another round of world-wide DJ bookings in Brazil, Indonesia, and Viet nam to name but a few.
2017 sees Max continuing his hectic weekly DJ schedule in Tokyo as well as playing the length and breadth of Japan from Sapporo to Okinawa, and releases are scheduled this year for Eskimo, Hell Yeah!, Palms & Charms, and Is It Balearic? Recordings.
