Maya von Doll

“Basically, I fell in love with club music,” she explains. “I was obsessed with acts like Major Lazer, Boys Noize, Bloody Beetroots and the Ed Banger sound. Hearing those mind-blowing synths and super processed beats was like discovering real music as a teenager all over again. It was the first time in years that I was genuinely excited. I became the annoying girl at parties asking the DJ to play this and that just so I could experience those tracks on the mega sound systems they were designed for. Hearing those sounds and seeing what they do to a crowd on the dancefloor was like entering a new dimension – something rock stops short of. I wanted to be part of that movement but I also wanted to bring my own skill for melody, storytelling and programming into the equation.”

Maya has locked horns with some of the biggest, most-forward thinking producers in the business – including Flood (Depeche Mode, The Killers, PJ Harvey), Dave McCracken (Roc Nation, Beyonce, Oh Land) and Dimitri Tikovoi (Placebo, The Horrors, Nicola Roberts) – to help produce her debut solo album. Plus, she’s furthered her dancefloor credentials by launching the club night and magazine, Shut Your Pretty Mouth, with style journalist Lisa O and electro It Girl Charli XCX.”
