As a songwriter & producer, Mitch Pattugalan works closely with artists to achieve release quality recordings - writing & producing songs in a range of genres from his studio in Brisbane. An R&B artist in his own right, he records & performs his own music under the alias, Maximo (@maximomusic).

In recent years Mitch has been lucky enough to travel internationally and collaborate with talented artists both locally & abroad. 2018 saw the vocalist & keys player in Los Angeles, where he secured a spot at the Ableton Loop Summit for Music Makers. It was here that he released his “shimmering” electro-soul record, ‘Hold Up’ (Happymag 2018). On the back of various film & music projects in 2019 – and having already booked out his roster with recording artists for 2020 – Mitch is eager to continue working with emerging & established talents alike, to bring their creative ideas to life. Aside from production, Maximo’s unique live show - which integrates sampling, triggering & looping alongside a live rhythm section – led to Mitch touring nationally in this capacity as a musical director, and provided him the opportunity to showcase at the Electronic Music Conference in Sydney. Mitch’s experience within the music industry is diverse and also includes film score composition, audio engineering, lecturing & musical mentoring. With a degree in Popular Music, he aims to impart his musical, studio & on-stage knowledge to his aspiring students at JMC.
