At the forefront of progressive female tech / underground sounds, “Red Alert” is a 10-track uplifting project, focused on a sense of empowerment and motivation.
After spending many hours in the studio and on the decks, Maxinne moved to London from home in the South Coast, honing her craft, discovering her emotive and uplifting sound over the last few years. A sound that’s landing her global support, a 17 week residency at Eden for Toolroom, and her debut album “Red Alert”.
Named, to not only match the bold colour of her hair, but reflect the bright, electric sounds contained within, Maxinne revealed on Instagram “’Red Alert’ is more than just the album title, it’s my vision for the future with radio shows, tours and so much more…” View more here:
Delivering 8 progressive, original records on the album, alongside; Mark Knight, Hayla, DJ Rae, Lauren L’aimant, Gene Farris, MC Flipside, Marck Jamz & Cami Jones; as well as an additional two single releases from 2020/21, Maxinne stated:
This album is built from my experience in club culture, hearing music in clubs, listening to other DJ’s, and personal experiences in life.
I’ve taken inspiration from different sounds that I love and brought them all together into one album project. There is a soulfulness to it which is heavily influenced by the music that I grew up listening to.

As an inspiration to many, Maxinne is the figurehead of #WeAreListening – an event and mentoring platform from the Toolroom Academy, tackling gender balance in the dance music industry. Aussie DJ sister duo, Nervo, are also part of this movement, having played some events with Maxinne (pictured below).
