MAX RAD is back with a new single entitled ‘Samuel’, once again showing off his impressive ability as a producer and a writer. The track is built around a bouncy synth line, with the instrumentation growing into more energetic synths, a thumping kick drum, crisp hi-hats and snappy clap. Max’s vocal performance is emotive and fits wonderfully into the track, perfectly delivering his well-penned, ever-evocative lyricism. The track grows into a spacey and spiralling soundscape, with each new addition to the texture bringing in a new level of energy, without detracting from the reflective sentiment that MAX RAD captures in his production.
On the new single, the artist shares:
“’Samuel’ is about friendship and being the support to someone who needs help. A wayward friend that pops up in their times of need and then disappears again.”

Producer, singer/song-writer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist MAX RAD has built his fan base through releasing heartfelt Electronica, warm instrumentals and soulful vocals giving us reflective and emotive lyricism. Max is forging his own path in the UK electronic music scene, self-producing and releasing consistent well received singles that have earned him acclaim from tastemakers across the industry. Max has also sold out multiple shows and appeared at festivals across the UK and Europe, including a highlight this year on the main stage at Cornwall’s Boardmasters. His debut album ‘Joy Wonder’ was released on his own label Three Sign and has seen consistent play on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Introducing shows, with musician and DJ Gemma Bradley being an early champion of the project.
After growing up in the rural setting of Stroud, Gloucestershire, Max started to record music aged just six-years-old. Moving to London in 2019 saw the artist give his influence on a wide range of collaborations as a co-writer, producer and mixing engineer. Next up was Cornwall, where Max lived and worked during the various pandemic lockdowns, continuing to grow his notability.
Now based in Bristol, Max continues to release new music whilst championing his independence as an artist. ‘Samuel’ is another example of the talent MAX RAD has to offer, and we can definitely expect to see more from him in the near future.
