Maxi Jazz has Faith in KRK Studio Monitors

JAMAICA, AUGUST 24, 2021 – Maxwell Fraser, professionally known as Maxi Jazz, is an English musician, rapper, singer-songwriter, and DJ best known for his role as the lead vocalist of British electronic band Faithless. Maxi Jazz’s love for music, which began as a hobby, quickly turned into a full-time career as he worked night and day making beats and writing lyrics. As his name began to accrue weight in the industry, he was able to grow his project portfolio, working with ethnic pop fusion group Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart as well as British pianist Jason Rebello’s jazz group. When Maxi Jazz was looking to purchase monitors for his project studio, he immediately fell in love with KRK.

“I first came across KRK in Jamaica in 2005 while looking for some monitors for my room in my mum’s house in Kingston,” says Maxi Jazz. “They came highly recommended, so I took a chance, made the purchase, and have been using them ever since! Investing in KRK was definitely the right move for me.”

The bass response of KRK’s ROKIT G4 studio monitors is ideal for Maxi Jazz’s unique voice and aligns perfectly with Faithless’ sound. “My love of reggae and hip-hop music means that it’s critical I get an accurate bass response to keep me in check while mixing,” he adds. “Also, my voice is low and deep, so mid-range accuracy is key. This sweet spot is lacking in a lot of other nearfield monitors that seem to be present in many studios. They need KRKs!”

Whether Maxi Jazz is mixing for Faithless in his project studio in London or working on his own tracks in his Jamaica-based home studio, he knows he can rely on his ROKITs for his work. “All of the demos created in my 48-track SSL studio in Jamaica and my (much more basic) setup in London have incorporated KRKs, and I see no reason to ever change to another brand,” says Maxi Jazz. “They’re simple, easy to setup and use, and extremely high quality.”

Additionally, Maxi Jazz resides by the ocean in Jamaica and has been pleasantly surprised by the durability of his ROKIT G4s in humid climates. “We moved to a property by the sea and my KRK ROKITs have stood up incredibly well to the salty, corrosive environment—it’s really impressive. The monitors are well-engineered and durable. I couldn’t be happier with my KRK ROKIT G4s.”
