Fast Five: Max Cartoux



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I started making music at 15, before this i wanted to be a car racer but had to stop for many reasons. I’ve always had a big passion for music and this became a very clear path for me to follow and when i did I knew my whole life will be based around it.

How would you describe your music?

My music is mainly progressive house but it can be quite different from one song to another, there is no fixed formula. But I try to incorporate as much feeling and energy as I can.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

At the moment, I spend the majority of my time trying to get songs perfect and ready for the outside world. Over the next few months i’ll be working on even more music.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

That is a good question actually. There are a lot of producers and singers I’d like to work with for many different reasons. One that comes to mind is the producer Duo, Lush & Simon. They have a way of putting certain emotions into their track that I love.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one?

That’s a really tough choice to make as I like so many different types of music. Could be a rock album or a progressive house one. I love ‘Hold me down’ by You Me at Six and ‘We are’ by Dash Berlin.
