Read the Max Foley Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I was born in London in 1997, by Italian mother and Irish father, and I'm currently studying in Ferrara.

Since I was little I've always listened to music, from my family's favourite band U2, to rock music and to old school techno and trance that my dad used to club to.

I've always wanted to be involved in the music scene and throughout the years I developed a deep passion for electronic dance music.
I started Djing with a friend of mine during High School, we used to play mainly commercial EDM tracks.

In 2016 I made the though decision of stop djing in order to get better at producing my own music. I started out with Future House and a bit of Drum and Bass to then settle in late 2016 to Techno music, and i'm so glad to have done so!


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


When I was younger I used to listen to a lot of House music and old school rave anthems from artist such as The Prodigy, Orbital, Underworld, Daft Punk's first album and more.
This definitely settled my mind into "underground music mode".

With the boom of Future House music I like to say i got distracted and shifted my mind into "Radio Like" dance music, but I soon got bored with it and rediscovered Techno music.

I'm a big fan of Pryda, Deadmau5, Carl Cox, Drumcode's artist and more, but I don't have a referring point artist when it comes to producing. I definitely picked up Italian Style pounding techno and more melodic northern EU melodies with a slight touch of Acid to top it up.

I also listen to Trip Hop, Hip Hop, Vaporwave, Lo-Fi Music, Drum & Bass and non electronical music which surely helped me widen my music culture and influences!


What´s new right now?


Discovering Owna Music's techno label "Third Nature", was one of the best things that happened in 2017.
I'm going to release more tracks with them in 2018, starting with my acid track "Hombre", that will include remixes by Dan Morris and Usawa.
I also hope to get back on the DJ booth during 2018! Let's se what the future will bring!

With this sead, I would like to thank Daniele Reggiardo, Daniele Boncordo and all of Owna Music! It's surely thanks to them if i'm doing this interview right now!
