Max Gardner is a DJ, producer and one of the lead promoters of the Direct to EarthÂ (DTE) crew which burst onto the scene in 2011 throwing bangin’ techno and tech house parties that quickly gained a cult following among the techno heads of the San Francisco and East Bay underground.
As a DJ, Max has a real physical sense for what’s going on just beyond the decks and is careful to ensure that every track thrown down is more of a communication than a dictation to his audiences. Â While, as a producer, Max has earned his credit as an artist and remixer for several labels such as Coal Recs, Dark and Sonorous, and Emote, pushing a sound that is a devastating combination of dark, funky, artful and jackin’.
Max Gardner can be found as a resident DJ of The Shuffle Co-Op, Â and as local support for artists s/a Heiko Laux, Steve Rachmad, Marc Houle, and Carl Craig to justÂ name a few.
