Max Justus strives to build sonic worlds both familiar and alien - inviting yet foreboding. Utilizing obtuse combinations of organic and inorganic sounds to form realms for more traditional word and voice to inhabit. His sonic style draws from a mix of experimental electronic, classical, and jazz influences, while his vocal and structural approaches take queues from R&B, gospel and singer-songwriter greats.
Having produced and regularly released electronic music since 2002, his latest self-titled offering sees the end of a 6 year process of working and reworking. Many of the songs going through several cycles of reflection and metamorphoses before assuming their final shape.
Influences include Autechre, Bob Dylan, James Blake, Steve Reich, Miles Davis, Etta James, Son Lux and D’Angelo.
