Graham was born in London, England and lived in Spain, New York City and Los Angeles before settling in Ottawa in 1989. At age 15 in 1986, he began as a hip-hop and scratch DJ before discovering and falling in love with the Dance music scene between 1992 and 1994. Max was also instrumental in the creation of the famous Atomic nightclub in Ottawa, often playing 6-hour sets every week during the late 90's.
Graham was nominated for a Juno Award in 2001 for his track Airtight. Also in 2001 Graham was asked to mix Tranceport CD #4 (Renamed Transport due to his unique style which includes more than trance) which was also met with huge success, and spurred his first world tour. This rapid rise in attention led Graham to be voted number 23 on DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs list, the highest entry for a newcomer in 2001. His DJing is known for long sets and his distinctive music style remains difficult to pin down, covering genres like, progressive, techno, and trance.
