ActivePhaze is the NYC based alter ego of DJ & producer, Max Semenov. Life-long music aficionado & sounds collector, ActivePhaze began his United States creative adventure upon arrival to Big Apple in 2000 from Koenigsberg, where he was already one of the most notable electronic & dance music advocates, event organizers, and underground DJs.
ActivePhaze took the NYC DJ world by storm with gigs in downtown Brooklyn's nightspots with VJ VHHG, Manhattan's Sullivan Room, Spiegel Tent, LeSouk, Pacha, Knitting Factory, Dance New Amsterdam, Nightingale, The Cocktail Room, HighLine, Remote Lounge, to name a few, as well as open turntable events, attending Scratch Academy's classes, and meeting an array of like-minded people, such as "EyeWash" multimedia shows run by Forward Motion Theater (FMT).
Max's eclectic styles palette range from latest underground trends and experimental sounds to world-famous party classics and all-time favorites. Be it his own "crowd reading" skills in action or client's tastes and preferences, the main principle is to deliver "good music" from any genre: disco, nu-disco, funk, electro, indie dance, every side of house and techno, hip hop, bass, grime and old school rap, latin rhythms, tribal dubs, re-edits and mash-ups, deep, minimal, neo-classical, abstract, ambient, lounge and all colors of Jazz. ActivePhaze's DJ skills has branched far beyond dance floors and is used in multiple projects with modern dance theaters, a myriad of visual artists, performers, bands and fashion designers. Making people dance and working with turntables are ActivePhaze's favorite source of fun and endless joy to share with the audience.
