About MAX PELA:
Max Pela is "a DJ’s Dj," he shows up with a smile, selects the first track, then sculpts every facet of the sonic environment to his precise vision until the last sine wave emanates from the speakers hours later. His music is Deep Afro, Soulful, Techy and intense; graying boundaries between genres. Constantly seeking variety, in uncommon sounds in each genre, the mixture of these genres, creativity and the search for that specific sound, and his fondness for non-conventional producers, of newer generations. His mixing is patient and flawless and his personality is respected, his performance revered all over.
Born 1982 in Santo Domingo capital of the Dominican Republic, Latin America's new mecca for electronic music. His musical journey began in his childhood as a percussionist in the Dominican Republic and started to DJ by the late 90's and became the resident DJ of Ocho Puertas and performing in some of the most prestiges venues of the island. In late 2003 left home for the United States and in 2006 he becomes resident to Carlos Mena's BEMBE party in Miami and Boston where he began to gain recognition in the United States and across the world. Currently, Max Pela continues his journey of Afro-Rooted Rhythms in AFROBETA BODEGA and along with Adam Gibbons in Boston's monthly celebrations of UHURU AFRIKA while traveling to Europe and Latin America bringing his unique Afro sound around world.
