Just like the vodka from his birthplace, Moscow-born Dutch-resident MAKCIM always fuels the party spirit with his intoxicating and powerful sets, mixing house and techno to create refreshingly deep and sexy grooves. A colourful childhood in Russia, painted with the sounds of Joy Division, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Blondie as well as jazz greats Miles Davis and Marcus Miller, meant that by the time MAKCIM moved to the Netherlands, at the age of 12, he knew music was going to be a huge part of his life.

When he is not in the studio with his friend and production partner Levi Verspeek crafting new tunes, he can be seen and heard spinning vinyl at Berlin’s Club der Visionaere, Hoppetosse and Arena club as well as in party hotspots across New York, Moscow, Amsterdam, Paris and Ibiza. With new releases on Raum Musik and Apollonia and gigs in the 2015 pipeline, it’s as clear as vodka that if you want to get funked up, then MAKCIM will mix you a perfect cocktail of house and techno tunes for deep and long all night party play.
