ActivePhaze is the NYC based alter ego of DJ & Producer, Max Semenov. Life-long music aficionado & sounds collector, ActivePhaze began his United States creative adventure upon arrival to Big Apple in 2000 from Russia's most western borders, where he was already one of the most notable electronic & dance music advocates, event organizers, and underground DJs.
ActivePhaze took the NYC DJ world by storm with gigs in downtown Brooklyn's nightspots with VJ VHHG, Manhattan’s Sullivan Room, Spiegel Tent, LeSouk, Pacha, Knitting Factory, Dance New Amsterdam, Nightingale, The Cocktail Room, HighLine, Remote Lounge, to name a few, as well as open turntable events, attending Scratch Academy's classes, and meeting an array of like-minded people, such as "EyeWash" multimedia shows run by Forward Motion Theater (FMT), http://forwardmotiontheater.org/
ActivePhaze's eclectic styles palette range from hard to minimal, noise to beats, FXs and accapellas, every side of techno & house, ambient, modern classical, and all colors of Jazz. After the first A/V performance together with VJ VHHG, FMT's founders Eric Dunlap and Holly Daggers, invited him to become the resident DJ for Eye Wash. This was a turning point in creative activity and is still the duty of pride and his true interest. The DJ skills of ActivePhaze has branched far beyond dance floors and is used in multiple projects with modern dance theaters, a myriad of visual artists, performers, and fashion designers. Making people dance still remains ActivePhaze’s favorite source of fun and endless joy to share with the audience.
