Johnny Cash Converters + Dj MadMax
June 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - June 30, 2019 @ 2:00 am
Johnny Cash Converters grew up in a council estate in Glasgow and was brought upon an exclusive diet of Glaswegian salad (chips), house piano and 808 hand claps. His grandpa however, couldn’t understand all this new fangled doof doof stacking shelves nonsense and insisted that in his house it was Sinatra, Cash or the highway. It’s taken 30 years for Johnny to realise that both worlds could could co-exist, so after failing to think of a comedy Sinatra / Rave name (Frank Sinatrave? Dan Sinatya?), Johnny Cash Converters was born.
Playing country music for people who hate County music, JCC cover dance anthems from the 70s to the present day in the style of Johnny Cash, with a heavy weighting of rave classics from Dangerous Dave Pearce’s ‘Dance Anthems’ 90s heyday. Covering everything from Adamski to Zombie Nation, expect Candi Staton, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The KLF, 2 Unlimited, Underworld and The Prodigy. Go hard, then go home and relieve the babysitter!
After, DJ MadMax represents Love Carnival & JukeBox Baloo parties in London and specializes in a wide range of dance music such as tropical bass, tribal beats, future bass, dnb and ragga… Coming from a background of soundsystem culture, he soon found the connection with ragga and jungle and incorporated these influences into his sets.
A DJ that has always been driven by bass heavy music, Max’s performances highlight the depth of his music collection, with good vocal skills and the ability to switch genres at any
moment, not to mention having a bunch of killer dubplates at the ready.
