Meet the DJ! - Max

This week, get to know more about DJ Max, host of We Jam Econo! You can catch his show on Saturdays, 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM EST.

Name: Max

Pronouns: He/him

Major and Year of Graduation: Painting/Media 2026

Genres: Indie rock, post punk, slow core, outsider, anything I’m feeling that week!

What inspired your show name?

The name comes from this 80s hardcore band, The Minutemen. “Econo” represents a do it yourself, low production, attitude and outlook.

What made you want to join The Core, and when did you become a DJ? What is your involvement?

I wanted to join The Core because the people involved were just really nice, and it seemed to really encapsulate New Brunswick’s amazing DIY/underground music scene. I became a DJ last year as a freshman, and I’m involved with occasional promo work and Zine making.

Tell us what you've been listening to/playing recently!

Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of Silver Jews, Smog, and Ween.

What has been your favorite DJ experience so far?

Last year at Corefest, where I ran around handing the rest of my zines to random people so I could see Sweeping Promises.

Who would be your dream guest on your show?

John Waters

Any advice for prospective DJs?

Don’t play bad music.
