DKS is an easy man to find, but a hard man to keep track of. I hit him after his banger ‘Leave The World Behind’ dropped and asked him to sort a mix for us. This was probably 3 months ago. Harassment always triumphs though.
DKS (aka Max Clarke) is a Surrey based producer, already reigning support from influential names such as Rusko, Datsik, Plastician, and Emalkay. Having gained a substantial following on social media networks from free downloads Leave the World Behind and a remix of Labrinth’s Earthquake that was supported by Labrinth himself, DKS has become known for his interesting melodies and arrangements, providing a fresh breath of air to the scene.
As the new year approaches Max is gearing up to take on bigger projects, including a song on Datsik’s new label. With future releases and collaborations planned, It’s safe to say DKS is one to watch out for.
This mix is a banger though, and shows that DKS is just as good on the decks as he is in the studio. He runs through 12 tracks in 20 minutes, and the transitions are flawless.
