Maxwell Edison has been one of Seattle’s busiest and best DJs for the last seven years. Spending countless hours searching for—and often scoring—rare and excellent 45s, he’s built a fearsome arsenal of dance-floor weapons geared for those who dig extraordinary specimens of garage, psych, soul, glam, girl group, freakbeat, exotica, power pop, and more. A diligent archeologist of these styles that thrived from the ’50s to the ’70s, Maxwell makes sure that his sets always launch a party into overdrive. Whether it’s at many of the bars around Seattle where he spins, as co-founder of monthly ’60s R&B/garage/soul dance party Wig Out! and ’60s go-go dance party Boots!, during opening slots for live performers such as the Equals’ Derv Gordon and Patti Smith Group’s Lenny Kaye, dropping gems at hip weddings and private events, or at his revelatory sets for Boss Radio 66, Maxwell Edison is sure to turn you on to amazing old, obscure songs that never lose their freshness.
