Eostra is a resident of the System 108 and Roots United communities. He is inspired in earlier years by UK garage, dubstep, and anything on the hardcore spectrum. Today his sets are an eclectic mix of multi electronic genres but still based on techno.
Also Eostra is a member of Roots United – a big formation of musicians & promoters, who organizes Present Perfect Festival and other massive off-location events. After moving from Moscow to Saint Petersburg, Maxim became a resident of a cult club Stackenschneider, where he curates monthly happening party Sumeba Miyako. Later he returned to Moscow and became a permanent member of System 108 community.
Though he constantly participates in rave-oriented events, he's not only a techno DJ. There is house, disco, acid, electro, techno and experimental music in his sets depending on a place and time of a day. Esquire Magazine estimated of Maxim's true worth as a selector and mentioned him in the list of the 8 best DJs of Saint Petersburg.
