“Air Max ’97 creates new spaces and possibilities for the club.” – Truants

Dutch born, New Zealand raised and currently London based, Air Max ‘97 is a singular artist in the electronic music landscape. His productions and remixes are rich with atmosphere, texture and percussive energy, garnering support from DJs and audiences worldwide. Air Max ‘97’s debut album Nacre is his most vivid and complex musical statement to date, deploying unruly rhythmic experiments alongside more introspective cuts to explore deep and liminal emotive territories.

A magnetic presence behind the decks, Air Max ‘97 forges sonic journeys alive with energy and dynamism. His DJ sets contrast dark and light, hypnotism and rupture, made all the more special with the inclusion of countless unreleased tracks, edits and blends. He regularly presents radio shows on London’s Rinse FM and tours tirelessly around the world.

In 2015 Air Max ‘97 founded DECISIONS, a record label delivering ‘music to move people’. The label has released acclaimed EPs by artists including Jikuroux, DJ Plead, Chunyin, waterhouse and Avbvrn.
