THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOMO!
WE’RE FOLLOWING THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD TO PERTH FOR A VERY BIG DOOF WITH MEGASTAR Max Morel (NL)
HERE’S A BIT MORE ABOUT THE LEGEND HIMSELF:
Future hero and DJ, Max Morel was born and raised in Holland.
Aged sixteen, he found a part-time job, bar tendering at a local cafe. It was then and there, where music got an opportunity to invade his profound life. After graduating high school, he moved out to the cultured lifestyle capital, Amsterdam. Moving as a bat through the dark, going from one venue to another, it was nightlife and people that got him interested in house.
He could often be found in the record stores where he started to compile a rather tasty sound of his own. Being twenty-one of age, he got an opportunity to get behind the turntables of club Soho, which is internationally known as Amsterdam’s most popular gay bar. Initially, he shared the spotlight with well-known DJ Godard who made a name by playing at the world-famous Amsterdam nightclub Roxy. Two months after, Max took over and became Soho’s new resident DJ on the weekly Friday. In time Soho became known to him as the place where it all started and got him his first abroad deal.
In his period at Soho, Max developed his own style and soon thereafter, he managed to obtain his first large booking abroad; Max drove the crowd of a German club wild and so, his first actual club set became a well-known fact! Back in Amsterdam, the number of bookings kept on growing and he was asked to play at the prominent annual street parties that take place on Queensday and Gaypride in the main gay street of Amsterdam, the Reguliersdwarsstraat. While playing for an audience of 4000 people, Max created a vibe and invited everyone to accompany him on his musical journey. This became a tradition that still takes place every year.
Max’ career was now developing rapidly and the first bookings of other nightclubs in Amsterdam started to come in. His energetic and uplifting music also got a chance at one of Amsterdam’s most renowned nightclubs, Escape Venue where he treated the audience to a fantastic closing set on a Saturday night in 2002. This set was not only enjoyed by the audience of Escape Venue that night, but also by several promotors that were present. This resulted in bookings at all major Amsterdam nightclubs, such as Marcanti Kingdom, The Powerzone, Ministry and Hotel Arena. Max broadened his horizon and travelled to the across Europe, Asia, The United States and South America in order to gain international success.
The year 2005 was the year of the final breakthrough of Max! In this year, Max was asked as residential deejay for the well-known White Parties. These big circuit parties have obtained a solid position in European circuit nightlife and are now considered to be among the most popular parties in Europe. Also his residencies for CO2 and Gloss are still being an ongoing success. At this time more tours around the world have been completed and new tracks are coming from the studio.
28 year old Max Morel started producing fierce tracks in his crafty studio located in Amsterdam as well and as he continues to keep it up for his believers, hes fulfilling all his own goals and believes and with his enthusiasm, commitment and motivation will make sure his musical career will keep on developing.
