MXG


Read the MXG Interview below and share it on social media.


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


Hi ! My name is MXG and I am a 20yr old DJ from Antwerp, Belgium. I've been playing drum 'n bass since I was 14, and it still is my passion till this day. I have played all across Belgium at some of the bigger events and also played abroad some times. I didn't get to producing yet but it's surely in my plans for the near future!

Apart from that I organize my own event about two times a year, called 'Stoked', where I invite young talents in the drum 'n bass genre to come and showcase their talents.

I do it all for the love and the music, money or fame doesn't intrest me at all!


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


I started DJ'ing when I was thirteen, at that time I still played as Maxy G and I played all genres that are popular here in Belgium (from house to harder styles to dubstep…). I decided it wasn't fun for me anymore because I didn't like the music I was playing at bookings.

At fourteen I fully got into dnb, my favourite artists back then were our Belgian proud Netsky, Camo & Krooked, Stan SB, Sigma, Calyx & Teebee, Danny Byrd and many more… I played at smaller parties that covered all genres back then.

When I was sixteen I got to know the subgenre Jump-Up. It was pretty unknown and underground back then, so I didn't believe that it was going to be the next big thing.

I decided to change my name to MXG after some comments of Maxy G sounding to much like Macky Gee, although I had never heard of him when I started my career. When I got into jump-up my heroes were Dub Berzerka, DJ Alpha, Guv, Hazard, Nu elementz and many many more. Jump-up became a real hype in Belgium and I started to gain bookings, what made me to the DJ I am today.

Now that I've been in the game for some time I've get to know some good friends who influence me from a small distance. Fellow Belgians and good friends Used, Basstripper and Licid are doing it for me at the time.


What´s new right now?


I'm quite low on bookings for 2018, only 5 are in my agenda. This is mostly because of the many jump-up DJ's available her in Belgium, and ofcourse my lack of own productions or releases.

The next edition of Stoked is on it's way and will happen somewhere around May. We'll bring a young UK-headliner to Belgium, along with big Belgian talents. It's gonna be sick!
