Tapesh & Maximiljan


Tapesh was brought up in his father’s clubs during the early 80s, where he had no choice but to listen to things like Kraftwerk and proper funk music. Given his impressionable young ears, it’s no wonder he has never stopped listening and now spends his days playing music to others. Having finally broken through into the public conscious thanks to productions like Reminisce on Get Physical, Feelings on Mobilee and Got To Live on OFF as well as others on labels like Noir and Defected, Tapesh has become very much in demand around the world, taking his flamboyant DJ sets to clubs like Cocoon in Frankfurt, Warung in Brazil and Studio 80 in the Netherlands.

With multi-cultural roots informed by everything from house to breakdance across scenes in UK, US and Europe, Tapesh has fomented a very unique DJ style that takes in plenty of sounds and knits them together into one grater whole. Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, DJ T and Anja Schneider, for example, are all fans of that special ‘Tapesh feeling’, and that same feeling is what makes the man’s music so well loved. As for the future, Tapesh is currently working on a new compilation and a full artist album as well as working on new singles and EPs all the while.


You might have come across his name more often in the last couple of months. and if not, you damn sure heard the music he has been responsible for, during your weekends out. Maximiljan has given his touch to numerous of different productions and thereby became an established name when it comes to creating music. Moreover his feel for the right sound and the zeal for innovation not only mirror in his productions, but particularly in his sets, which he plays with total commitment and a subtle sense for each and every audience.

Releases on substantial Labels like Mobilee, Noir Music or Liebe*Detail got him support by some of the biggest names in House and Techno and collaborating regularly with his friend and partner Tapesh effectively introduced him to a bigger audience. Calling him a real music enthusiast is no exaggeration, as his style seems to be adaptable in so many ways. Whether it’s Old School, New School, House or Techno, he never ceases to thrill the listener with the music he plays.

Maximiljan has been on the move for several years by now and played venues in London, Barcelona, Zürich, Warsaw or Lisbon, just as a range of clubs all over Germany and the Netherlands. Born and raised in Neuss (near Düsseldorf, Germany), he recently relocated to Amsterdam for a change of scenery and is now ready to take on what’s ahead of him.
