MAAKS was born in northern France and was motivated to learn a lot about music. He learned percussion for 10 years to expand his knowledge. Due to his passion for electronic music, MAAKS started to play at several events in France. He was a resident DJ in a techno club for 2 years and played in several clubs and open airs. His style is influenced by minimal and techno rhythms: dark, industrial, deep with organic powerful bass. He quickly found his own style and mainly focused on techno and minimal techno.
There followed appearances in Brussels, Paris, Budapest and Hamburg. After MAAKS won a DJ contest from Moin Moin Records, he made contact with the "Fundbureau Club" in Hamburg. This event made him better known and he became part of Moin Moin Records atmosphere. It gave him the opportunity to play and be close to the artists he was really inspired by. He took the chance to produce in a studio and in the same year his first release came out on "Mischkonsum Records". It is always a pleasure to experience his groove.
