More on MGMX
Everything started for Lionel Weets alias MGMX or MAGMAX at the age of 12 when he got introduced to the vibes of the most underground electronic sounds such as Acid, Techno, Detroit Electro, Wave, … and to some pioneers such as Carl Craig, Kirk Degiorgio, Joey Beltram, Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, the Underground Resistance Crew, Woody McBride, Neil Landstrumm, DJ Godfather, Drexcya, Aphex Twin … MGMX was directly dropped into the best side of electronic music.
Some years later, the time to party had come and MGMX started travelling all over Belgium to party, meeting people and improving his electronic music knowledge. Real addict of techno and acid music, MGMX slowly focused on techno music which slowly became more a way of life than a simple music love for him…
MGMX started producing seriously when he met Josh Love, French techno producer known for his top-charts-tracks, owner of Kazoo Records, BackSpin, Starstraxx and Lift’In who taught him a lot of things about music production and helped him to improve really well.
MGMX was working hard, staying in his studio to improve and get skilled enough to develop his own style and achieve his objectives… His main styles were tribal techno and funky/disco techno, developing is own funky touch. Everything went really fast and Lionel released several EPs and tracks on some digital labels.
A few months later, a new step was coming! After a small inactivity while he was finishing his e-business bachelor studies, it was high time for a second step in MGMX career. He was almost living and sleeping in his studio and the results spoke for themselves: He started signing releases on several vinyl labels such as Patterns Special Series, Patterns Serie-X, Beatform, Kazoo, … . And also released EP’s on leading labels in the funky and tribal scenes such as Adult, Patterns, Fer Br’s own Funk Me Recordings, Drakos Recordings, …
He was also one of the most active producers on his mastering engineer Bitch Bros’ Guilhotina Records with 2 EPs, several “Various Artists” compilations and a few remixes.
During these months, MGMX has also remixed producers such as Elton D, Fer Br, Lia Organa and Electric Prince, Steel Grooves, …
A few months later, in 2011, a real resurrection started! Lionel decided to take a new direction in his career and to come back to his roots… As a real addict of the Detroit sounds, he planned since the beginning of his producer career to start making Detroit Techno and Chicago House and he finally felt he was ready, skilled and creative enough for a new era. After a few months of hard work and the construction of a new production studio, his first Detroit tracks were ready and got directly signed to some influent labels.
MGMX has been supported by dj’s/producers such as DJ 3000, Armin Van Buuren, Mark Schulz, Trevor Rocklife, Fer Br, David Moleon, Aka Carl, Pedro Delgardo, Reaky,, DJ Murphy, Raul Mezcolanza, Du’Art, Goncalo M, Peppelino, Josh Love, Wyrus, Vestax, Paula Cazenave, Dj Link, Vortechtral, Aitor Ronda, Reaky, Veztax, Dj Cristiao, Gaspar T, Rydel, Goncalo M, Steel Grooves, Bitc Bros, Sean Place, ckos, Prude Polly, Patrick DSP,
