Maxim Holod was born in Bendery (Moldova) on April 18, 1985. His mother was a professional vocalist and at the age of 7, Max was stimulated to follow piano lessons. But after only one year he gave up because it was too boring. On his search for a music style he liked, he came across electronic music at the age of 14. Crystal Method was the first act which could draw his attention. After that he was listening to rave and breakbeat.
