Max Peterson aka Mad Maxx, born in San Diego in 1979 and raised in France during his teenage years, has been a prominent figure in the trance music scene since 1998. Inspired by his father, Gary Peterson, a distinguished composer and musician, Max’s musical journey began early, recording his first tracks at just 14.

Co-owner and resident DJ at The Ion Exchange in Santa Cruz, Max quickly became known for his deep psychedelic sets, captivating audiences across Northern California and beyond. In 2000, he formed the renowned trance project BIODEGRADABLE, followed by the formation of Sirius Isness in 2001 with Davina Elmosnino.


Under Sirius Isness, they released over 150 tracks on prestigious labels and performed globally. In 2007, Max embarked on his solo project, MAD MAXX, blending trance, ethnic sounds, and deep beats, delivering a unique sonic experience.

Collaborating with industry stalwarts, MAD MAXX has become a fixture in the trance scene, releasing albums like “AFTERWORLD” (2008) and “UNIVERSE INSIDE” (2011) on UNITED BEATS RECORDS.

With a third MAD MAXX album slated for 2019, Max continues to enchant audiences worldwide with his mystical and genre-defying sound, offering a transformative journey into the inner self.
