Max Chapman selects 5 Emerging Artists

House | Thursday 25th October 2018 | Nicky

Having smashed the dance floor in the last two years with gems such as 'Body Jack' on Elrow, ‘La Fiesta’  released on Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations imprint and ‘Catch Me If You Can’ on Kerri Chandler’s MadTech label, 2018 saw Max Chapman lift the ‘Breakthrough DJ’ trophy at Ibiza’s DJ Awards.


A popular rising talent right now, it’s easy to see why people like Adam Beyer, Riva Starr, Steve Lawler, Jamie Jones, Richy Ahmed, Hot Since 82, Loco Dice, Matthias Tanzmann and Pete Tong, are supportive, especially with serious tuneage coming out of his Resonance Records stable. With respected releases from the likes of CamelPhat,Solardo, wAFF, Richy Ahmed, Detlef and Mark Jenkyns, Max’s exhaustive energy for the dance floor is infectious.

Here he selects his current favourite 5 Emerging Artists ahead of this Friday, October 26th’s Halloween show: Hollywood Forever Part 1 alongside Danny Howard, Netsky and PAX.

Max Chapman's 5 Emerging Artists 

George Smeddles

His hypnotic basslines and his ability to create obscene grooves puts him at the top of my Top 5.

Mason Maynard

Mason has been one of the quickest rising stars that I can ever remember and has even just done a collaboration with Green Velvet. Can't wait to hear it :-)


Another guy writing insane grooves and he also includes mega use of vocals. Not to mention his young age of 24.

Ben Sterling

Ben is the youngest of the bunch but his musical maturity shines through his music. Definitely, one that is going to be massive.


He’s just 15 years old and has been producing for 5 years! Check his debut EP out on my label Resonance Records

Max Chapman joins Danny Howard, Netsky and PAX this Friday, October 26th for Egg LDN’s Halloween show: Hollywood Forever Part 1.
