Max is an MC and rapper who goes by Linguistics. Working alongside Drum & Bass DJ Friction, he’s performed at some of the most prestigious festivals around the globe, including Glastonbury, GlobalGathering, Tomorrowland, Pukkelpop and South West Four.
In 2018, Max revealed a frank and honest personal insight into his life via his EP Medicated, which documented his struggle with depression and anxiety. “Writing was my therapy” he states about the project, which attempts to tackle the stigma around mental health. “Although it might be uncomfortable for some, it is so needed for myself and many others to talk about these things.”
His personal lived experiences coupled with his interest in health and wellbeing led him to join the team that launched mental health initiative Getahead. Since then Max has project managed Getahead events and festivals. He is now taking an active role in Work Inspired as part of his mission to help others in the workplace manage their mental health and wellbeing and avoid burnout.
