Maxime Laffon aka Mc Sim's (minimal - teckhouse / Independant Libertine) " The small French minimalist " Maxime L. aka Mc Sim's, of Montpellier, captivated by a girl from behind the decks, was driven by envy one evening in the cool depths of winter to hone his passion and develop his skill at mixing. Influenced early on by house, drawn to the artistry of Paul Johnson, Robbie Riviera, Abe Duque, Laurent Garnier and Josh Wink; Maxime L. is developing his style to incorporate minimal sounds and techno from exposure to the work of Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Ricardo Villalobos, Jennifer Cardini, Gabriel Ananda, Steve Bug, Monika Kruse, Sébastien Leger and The Chemical Brothers. By melding these styles, he formulates a sound that disseminates through the dance floor and constructs a vibe that resonates through clubs in France, Belgium and Switzerland. Along the way he takes time to collaborate, where possible, with other DJs, gaining insight and learning from their experiences with artists like Miss Kittin, Mickael Mayer and Technasia. In 2010 Maxime L. is working towards moving beyond the booth and manifesting his musical universe through his next project: establishing his own label.
