smith & Hack - Falling Stars 
Power Glove (Torqux remix) - Sluggo 
Heads Up - Bassnectar 
Jack U - Felix da Housecat + Diddy (Ingrosso and Angello mix)

old dirty bastard - shimmy shimmy ya 
Animale (Datsik Remix) 
Disco Sirens - Midfield General 
G7 - Torque & Twist 
Super Mega Death Ray - RUN DMT remix

Also here's another edit for any DJ's out there. Kinda has a crookers feel, except more intense.
Puah - Gigi Barocco (Drivebot Edit)

Drivebot Presents: The Butcher Mix (Electro)

I've spent a good month figuring out what to put in this mix, so needless to say I'm happy with it.

I've packed it full of songs with cool sounds you probably haven't heard before in music before (see: horse noises lol :P ).

Enjoy! :)

The tracklist/stream can be found on my soundcloud page,
which for whatever reason is being annoying to just copy/paste the tracklist in here. :/ But the tracklist is detailed and located on the wave form.

New URL for my dj page!

It's true! While not a .com website, you can access this page by going to



Even Obama is happy!

I also have a Halloween dubstep mix I've been planning to release! All halloween related songs. It's sweet, but halloween is over. Should I upload it?

Total Paska - Drivebot (UnOriginal Mix)

 I was on a bus back to Montreal and decided to make an edit of some sort. This is the result, a little Mr. Oizo on one hand, and a little Bloody Beetroots on the other. Enjoy and it's free to download. As time goes on I'll make sure that my edits become better haha. But I think I could use this in a DJ set no problem

Justice - Audio, Video, Disco (Directed by SO-ME)

Okay so this is the first Justice song I've heard off their new album which I actually find to sound pretty cool. It sounds a lot like Justice's previous work, and a tonne better than their other track 'Civilization'

I like SO-ME a lot, he makes really cool hand drawn posters in a pop-art style. If only I could convince him to draw me a Drivebot logo :D

Original Music.. BY ME?

Well I wouldn't say I'm great at it now, but I'm not doing bad. Here's my first song that I've made (all self taught nobody to help little drivebot). But if you want to get good at something, you gotta do it by yourself! (see: jerking off?)

Anyways, This song will probably be altered a lot before it's done, but it's a good start. I'll also change up the chord progression for the buildup, since it matches the dance section. But so far, this is definitely one of the best songs dance songs I've ever made.

The Phantoms Revenge - Charlie (Drivebot EDIT) free D/L

It's been a while since I posted anything, so here's an edit I made by this group I previously mentioned called 'The Phantoms Revenge'

The Phantoms Revenge -Charlie DRIVEBOT EDIT by DRIVEBOT

You can download it by clicking here

New mix coming up :)

It's been a while, a long while I say, since I've released a new mix on my blog. But that's a good thing, I got a bunch of new tracks that are really good but kinda add dubstep elements into electro, but also have some electro parts too. Most of the songs will be 2011 era, but i might go back a few years to find some gems too. I'll be recording it in montreal when I go back there in a few days.

When you hear it, you'll be as happy as this tiger (which is all I have to offer in this post)

Wooo delayed post.... but first gig was a success!!

So the night went better than expected. We thought only about 100 people would go, but over 250 people (many just random street people) came and it was a big party! me and my friend earned just under 800$ together in one night! Unfortunately the only photos we got were at the beginning of the night when only like... 20 people were dancing, but by 2 AM the place was packed!

Only problem is the only thing I played was shitty club music, so I might take a little bit of time before having a new gig... yup!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

My first gig at a club coming up this thursday!

Not too nervous though. I'll just be playing club music, and I know I'm better at mixing than the people who DJ at that club. Only thing I'm worrying about is that enough people show up :)

So how's everyones summers going? Fantabulous I hope

A mix of dope dubstep + new name + yeahh (blunts?)

So I changed my name. Max Power is alright, but unfortunately I felt it sounded too egocentric and barely anyone got that it was a Simpsons reference. I guess I'm too much of a 90's kid!

Anyways, so my new name is Drivebot.

 Anyways. I made a pretty killer mix of dubstep. Download it, stick it in your car. Impress your neighbours!

[NEW MIX] Max Power - Two Eyes Open

Max Power - Two Eyes Open Mix (05-04-2011)

Here's a pretty awesome mix I made today. This is kind of the sequel to 'The Amnesia Mix'. It's more intended to sound cool, but I could see this as good exercise music. There's lots of creepy vocal clips, some more subtle than others.

Enjoy :) Feedback appreciated!

Saturday, April 23, 2011


The first mix I've made of IDM type stuff, peppered with some other stuff. Giving a tracklist for once, because I'm so nice and awesome, and I know the 5 people who listen to this will probably want to know a track or two.

Peebles Intro - Max Power
Julio Bashmore - Battle for Middle You
Caribou - Sun
Dancing Bears - Roel H
Joy Orbison - Hyph Mngo
Teenage Bad Girl - Keep up with you
Madlib - L.O.V.E You and I
Flying Lotus - Lightworks (remix)
Madlib - (LA) California

Back to HI-FI sounds

Well, I found out how to record through using my computer instead of the external recorder (some settings needed changing).  Now weird audiophile perverts like Pyr0n can feel happier listening to whatever I make.

I hear the future

Norse Code mix 001: (Max Power + Wyrd the Cat)

Here's a one hour, live-recorded  mix me and a friend made a few nights ago. He goes by the name Wyrd the Cat and he's electro-breaks DJ who moved to Canada a few years ago. So with my dance music, and his electro-breaks, we decided to collaborate. As we both have Scandinavian heritage, we've named our DJ duo 'Norse Code'. 

 This is our first mix, and it goes pretty hard. You're doing yourself a disservice in life by not sticking this into your mp3 player (there's a download button on the right hand side).

Felix Cartal +Keatch Solar/Lunar EP

Felix Cartal has always been one of my favourite DJs ever. About a year ago he made two songs with his homeboy named Keatch. Here's both tunes. I prefer Lunar, but Solar is good too. If you like him enough, you can go buy these tunes on Beatport in a few days. Give 'em a listen sometime! Ep comes out April 26th.

Ideas for how make a good mix (or I suppose, a good anything)

The following post is on self-improvement

I've come to realize that if a DJ is going to make a mix that most people will like, they must play songs that are catchy and easily understandable for the ears. Simplicity over complexity. Oh, and a beat they can dance too. So there's this idea of simplicity. But also variance is important: making sure the ear doesn't get tired of one song over. In art that's called balance, but it exists in music too. But there should also be unexpected, but appealing noises. So just when you're thinking it might be getting boring, a new sound appears that begins to draw your attention. too many of these noises and your crowd gets overwealmed. Here again is the concept of balance.

Ever wonder why Skrillex is so popular? He goes hard, but then has soft breakdowns, then goes hard again. His songs are full of noises too, so the ear doesn't get bored, but it's not annoying as it's mastered well.

The DJ isn't trying to surprise the crowd, but IS kind of trying to surprise the crowd with how good the mix sounds. Even if a DJ drops in a song that's unexpected, it must go with the set, and be in time with the natural progression of the mix.

Now I'm not saying I'm all of what is written above, but I'm trying to get that way. This information can be applied to anything, whether it be painting, or relationships, or life in general.

I've also realized my second mix doesn't have enough balance in it, as it's too hard and too electro-y. I like it, but that's just me. We all have things we like and others don't like, but it's about appealing to the masses, but balancing that out with ones personal individuality.

I know it's like a 2 minute read, and that's more than most are willing to spend reading, but what do you think?

On another note, I just noticed John Roman posted a new remix, which is pretty dark, almost deep house, but definitely dance music. Hard to classify the man other than just 'dark dance music'.

Pluto (John Roman 'Planet X' Remix) - Milt Mortez by John Roman

Max Power - Accelerate (Electro Mix #2)


A c c e l e r a t e by Max Power 
 (downloadable as usual!)

First of all, I'd just like to say I'm really happy with this mix. So listen up when you wanna get pumped or whatever. It goes well with exercise or running or video games :P

I noticed after I had recorded the mix, my recorder didn't record in as much high fidelity as it usually does, so there's a little bit of static at certain higher frequencies, but it's barely noticeable, and I feel it kinda adds to the sound anyways to give it a more raw/live feel. 

ALSO, for those who wanted to see my setup, click the Facebook button right under the title of my blog, and you'll see a picture of me DJing, which shows off my Hercules RMX and laptop :P Although I'll hopefully soon be upgrading my midi controller to something with better sound quality, sexier design and more knobs and buttons. The 'artwork' for this mix is actually an altered picture from the house party dancefloor as I was DJing in my facebook picture. (the more you knowwww!)

Also feel free to become a facebook fan of mine! I only have 34 facebook fans, yet Justin Bieber has over 25 million? That doesn't seem right.

All comments and feedback appreciated! New mix will be made sometime after 50 followers :)

Is Max Power the new Dr. Dre?

Before everyone gets all up in my grill, I'll have a new electro mix up soonish, but in the meantime:

A year ago, I made a few beats and put them online. This rapper named Dawhud asked if I could send him one of my beats for an upcoming album he was putting out, which fuses Hip-Hop with Dub Reggae.

His album is coming out April 20th, called 'Dub Styles: Walkman Redemption".

I have the full version of the album and it's definitely a really good underground Hip-Hop album when relaxing in the summer heat.

Here's the song I made the beat for:

Dawhud - The Basics (produced by MAX POWER)

My next Electro mix will be out soonish, when I get some free time from writing papers. Also if you're interested in the whole album, get in contact with me :D

(AMAZING ELECTRO MIX) Max Power- in correct

This is by far the best mix I've ever posted. It's got a brand new remix of the new justice song on it, a remix of "IS YOU' but it's not the castlevania remix that i've been seeing on a lot of blogs, it's a fucking JFK mix and it f*cking kick a$s. At one point I drop 2 different songs over one song (excluding the song i blend with it and blend out. That base song touched 4 songs. It's completely live too, with no touch ups. SICK!

Seriously, this is the shit. I deleted my old mix I just made just to make room for it on my soundcloud. It's like 31 minutes of pure awesomeness. If you listen to this, and like it, post it on your blog! But none were needed because it's perfect. PERFECT! I'll probably edit this post later after I calm down.

MAX POWER - in correct by Max Power (DJ)

25 followers. woo!


But seriously, thanks guys!

I thought you might like this badass song from the upcoming Mortal Kombat OST. It's some dubstep type ish, but almost doesn't sound like it.

Check it! If you don't put it to 1080p, I'll be disappoint :P

the Hey Chicka mix

Yeah, she's listening.


Sofi+ someone i cant rememeber
Duck Sauce - Barbara Streisand
a remix of Kylie Minogue 
Dragonette- hello
Yeah Yeah Yeahs- A trak remix
Charlie- Phantoms Revenge
it ain't love- mstrkrft
In love with you

So I realized I need a mix to play at parties that girls will like. It took me a few days to come up with an adequate playlist, then last minute I took out some songs and put others. My favourite part is around 5:22 :P and near the end too.

Give me your opinions. Like/Dislike. What you would have preferred? What kind of mix you'd like to hear next? All are appreciated :)

5 ways to transition between two songs

I've noticed there's a lot of guides online on how to beatmatch two songs and crossfade, and BPM, yet if that is all you know, you're probably doing it wrong. I know there's a lot of people who want to learn how to DJ better, so here's a really good video of 5 ways to transition between songs.

Simian Mobile Disco warehouse DJ set.

(listen up!)

I was listening to this mix recently by Simian Mobile Disco, who are a mixture of synths, club music, electro-house and (of course) disco.

Anyways, here's a 2 hour mix by them, which is really awesome. Something to put on when playing videogames intensely or something. Check it out!

Part 1 can be heard/downloaded here:

Mainstream = More Views? (Electro-House 10 minute mix)

Here's some nicely blended popular Electro-House tracks that could be played at a party.

After relistening to it a couple times, I've realized certain parts are a little bit too chaotic for some peoples tastes, but I've received pretty good positive feedback on so far, so I ain't worried.

Give it a listen! Tell me what you actually think. I've got thick skin, come at me!

PS. As a side note, this ISN'T the mix I'll be making at 15 followers. So if mainstream isn't your cup of tea, there will be more lesser known stuff. If it is, tell me and I'll make another mainstream one sometimes (or at least throw some better known jams in occasionally). :)

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

When I get 15 followers I'll post up my new mix :P

But in the meantime, get your girl (or boy) in the mood with this classic. It's sweet, black man, passionate, love makin' music.

The Amnesia Mix


  If you want to download it (or don't like the soundcloud player) you can by clicking the down arrow on the right hand side of the player and listen to it later.

This live mix was intended to be pretty dark and minimal, but not boring like minimal can sometimes be. I've made a lot of mixes before and I believe, structurally, this is definitely one of the best mixes I've ever made before.

This mix was created a few nights ago. The story behind this mix was pretty insane though. I made it a day after having the craziest post-St-Patricks day party ever. I wont explain the shenanigans that happened at that huge house party, but pretty much everything you could think possible happening at a party did happen. But typically, not actually fun things. So I'll just leave that up to your imagination to figure out what went on.
