Over the past several years, Max Jacobson has risen to the forefront of Chicago’s electronic music scene. Combining a love of classic house with the deepest edges of the techno vanguard, Max’s ear is tuned toward swirling, moody atmospherics and layered funk.
The list of Max’s accomplishments is impressive. He runs the Tied label and party series. His adventurous tastes have landed him international bookings in Berlin, Ibiza, Morocco, Paris and beyond. He has played alongside a veritable who’s who of industry favorites: Raresh, Cosmjn, D’Julz, Dewalta and tINI, among others.
But what’s most exciting for Max is his blossoming production career with releases on Yoyaku, Minibar and other prestigious international record labels. Described by Kate Simko as “the freshest new house producer in Chicago,” his debut EP for Klectik garnered support from Simko herself as well as other luminaries such as Brothers’ Vibe, Maceo Plex, and Agaric. His Klectik track, “5am Friends,” was included in Beatport's weekly “Must Hear” Top 10 tracks for Deep House.
