'Maxito' (Max Dorsman Lemstra) was born in Mexico. 'Maxito' is a Mexican way of saying "little Max," which his parents loved to call him at an early age. 'Little' did they know Max would grow into the ironic nickname hitting a height of 6'7" (2m). Max studied the art of recording at Ava Studios, in Hilversum and SAE Institute, in Amsterdam. He obtained a degree in audio engineering from both.
