Everything started for Lionel Weets alias MGMX or MAGMAX at the age of 12 when he got introduced by his family to the vibes of the most underground electronic sounds such as Acid, Techno, Detroit Electro, Ambiant, … and to some pioneers such as Joey Beltram, Derrick May, Juan Atkins alias Model500, Jeff Mills, the Underground Resistance Crew, Woody McBride, Neil Landstrumm, DJ Godfather, Drexcya, Aphex TwinMGMX 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, famous techno producer known for his top-charts-tracks, being one of Carl Cox rising stars and, of course, owner of Kazoo Records, BackSpin, Starstraxx and Lift’In who helped him a lot to improve, and taught him a lot of things about music production.

Then, MGMX met Dj Cristiao who was still a young talented newcomer but started anyway to help him too. Few times later, Cristiao signed MGMX fist track on Techno Addicted Records.

MGMX was working hard, staying in his studio to improve and get skilled enough to develop his own style and achieve his objectives… Everything went really good with EPs on Guilhotina, Starstraxx, Unaffected, Disturbulence, InterTech, TechArt, CPS… and tracks on Reldz, Work Hard Play Hard, Adult, Starstraxx, Keep On Techno, Techment, Sonotech …

Few months ago, this was like a resurrection, after a little inactivity while he was finishing (and achieving) his e-business bachelor studies, a third step came for MGMX. He came back, night and day, on his studio and the results speak for themselves: he improved a lot and proposed some really high quality stuff which makes him one of the best newcomers of the new techno scène.

He started signing tracks on Adult, Beatform, Kazoo, Seriex-X (Patterns,) ,… but he also signed full EP’s on amazing labels such as the legendary Adult, the mythic Patterns, Fer Br’s own Funk Me Recordings, Aitor Ronda’s Drakos Recordings, …

He also released collaborations with Josh Love, Dj Cristiao, Steel Grooves, Chris Chambers, Subforce, Sean Place begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting, Alexey Kotlyar, Iago Alvarez …

Most of MGMX tracks are professionally mastered by his engineer “Marcelo Domanich” from GLM and proposes a powerful sound!

Lionel slowly decided to evolve to something deeper, a more underground way, to get some recognition from the gods who made him loving techno more than 10 years ago and to get back to his roots! The new MGMX’ sound is now a hybrid between detroit techno and some “modern” funky techno! Getting some huge support from DJ 3000 !

MGMX has been supported by dj’s/producers such as Trevor Rockclife, DJ 3000, DJ BOLD, Armin Van Buuren, Mark Schulz, 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, Christian Peak, Sean Place begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting, ckos, Prude Polly, Patrick DSP, …
