    Maxim Khomenko's passion for music dates back to his childhood as he grew up in a house of rhyme and rhythm. The St. Petersburg born and German raised artist is a trained professional dancer and is always drawn to a solid beat and an energetic dance floor. Maxim, better known as his alter ego "Valiete“, co-founded the Empore label in 2014 together with his companions of old, including aspiring artists Marc Wolf and Philipp Harms. Four years later, in 2018, his debut single „Saga“ was released and quickly gained the support of renowned artists, such as Maceo Plex and Tale of Us. Shortly after, he released an edit for Billie Eilish's hit song „Bad Guy“ on Torture the Artist's 5th anniversary compilation „fivefourtwentytwentyone“ in 2019. The Frankfurt-based DJ has also recently released a remix on Hommage for label heads Monkey Safari's track „Walls“. In the process of cementing his place in the electronic music scene, perfectionist Maxim "Valiete" Khomenko is definitely a name to look out for in the near future. His debut EP „Blackout“ is about to be released through Hommage for the first quarter of 2020.
