North London DJ & radio host Max G has a true passion for music of all shapes and forms. Having been exposed to a lot of soul and jazz at a young age, this influence has been ever-present since he first put a needle to a record in 2012.
Developing a love for the underground side of house, disco and funk during his time in Leeds, it spurred the start of a vinyl obsession. Heavily influenced by the Detroit sound and aesthetic, Leopold fused this with funk sensibilities and began honing a unique style on the decks - full of energy, emotion and groove.
A short stint working at east London’s renowned NTS Radio led him to later host his own show, Natural Element, now broadcast monthly on Radar Radio and representing his expansive taste, blurring genre boundaries and merging the old with the new.
Leopold is slowly but surely paying his dues, with residencies at spots such as The Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch Platform, The Bermondsey Yard and Lockside Camden. An integral part of party brand Discofunk, he also has a night of his own ‘Constellations’, established this year. Keep your eyes peeled for this rising star.
