RJ Maxwell, Electro Disco [Chessboard Records] (Calgary, AB).
Hailing from Calgary, AB, RJ Maxwell has been producing music for over 10 years. After some of his productions caught the ear of the Motion Notion renegade stages, RJ was asked to play his first DJ set at the Philthy stage in 2016.
Since 2016, RJ Maxwell has played the Famstival main stage, Reign Bough Fiddle Music & Arts Festival, rocked several party venues around Calgary, and most recently smashed the dance floor of Calgary's legendary Habitat Living Sound.
The sound of RJ Maxwell's original productions is often described as high-energy electro-disco blended with a variety of tech house, classic house, and even techno in live sets, creating an intriguing and booty-shakin' journey for partygoers.
