His critically acclaimed Midnight Garden E.P was released in 2006 and signalled something of a new direction. The record combined Max’s guitar work with a slower, ‘Balearic’ sound which was in tune perfectly with the resurgence in popularity of all things ‘Cosmic’ and Disco. Since the release of this record Max has gone onto remix many artists including Rubies (Telle Records), Coyote (Is It Balearic Recordings?) and Sorcerer (Tirk Records). In 2009 he produced two L.P’s for Bear Funk - ‘Continental Drift’ and ‘Zim Zim Zah Zah’ (in collaboration with Stevie Kotey). 2010 has been Max’s busiest year yet with the launch of his own label, Jansen Jardin, focusing on a more ‘House’ sound and featuring artists from both Japan and Europe.
He has a new solo L.P entitled, ‘White Shoes Blue Dreams’ due out in October on Bear Funk, as well as singles for Is It Balearic? Recordings and Feel Music scheduled for release in the summer. Remixes on Nang Records, Solardisco and Ene Records are also due out later in the year.
