Featured Artist Maximani

Maximani comes from a highly artistic family: His stepfather is an opera singer and his mother a ballet dancer. Electronic music was not exactly their thing and when Maximani showed interest in that side of art, he somewhat became the black sheep of the family. Yet, Maximani fell in love with the idea of making people dance and give them joy with his funk laden beats and blunt statements.

Maximani likes to conjure his very own electro style from different aspects of the EDM scene. Everything from hard mind-blowing beats to glitchy and funky grooves.

He is a unique artist who bridges the gap between standard big room and old school funk, setting his music apart from the rest.self-proclaimed founder and master of Dixtro. Dixtro, he says, is a genre that is achieved by mixing 12% Disco with 88% Complextro under twice of the atmospheric pressure. How Maximani does this remains unknown.

MAXIMANI’S ‘Rockstar’ just got supercharged with the release of the official music video. His previous release Ugly Dance got well over 100k views and the expectations for the new single are high. Why? Because Maximani says so! No seriously, it’s a must watch.
The video for Rockstar was directed by Maximani and Joakim Svensson of New North Productions. The crew planned months ahead and finally found the perfect spot in the forest to record it. Just one hour out of Stockholm.

MAXIMANI: “I was thinking about the success of Ugly Dance, and I believe it became so popular because the average guy can relate to it: ‘If Maximani can dance ugly and not give a f***k, why can’t I?’
So me and Joakim came up with this idea to make Maximani a mystical entity that brings feelings of joy and unity to all the people of this universe. ‘Rockstar’ emphasizes that literally ANYone can be a ROCKSTARIt’s really just how you perceive yourself. And I think that people who aren’t self conscious are the most fun people you can ever be around 🙂 I have a big interest in making people let go of their fears and start focusing on the good instead.”
