In Maximani’s future bass-funky soundscape lays an undertone of fervency which wants to transform into other genres but gets restrained by the slow bpm and stays within the penetrating power of pop music.
Maximani started to write and produce 2013 and was soon asked to remix an old Swedish funk legend (Paulo Mendonca – “Me and my friends.)
When Maximani decided to start producing more music where he sings himself he ended up in a studio complex with ,amongst others, Albin Myers, Familjen and John Dahlbäck There, Maximani was asked by Aviciis manager to do a cover of one of his acts ‘CAZZETTE’ . This resulted in a track where Maximani did all the instruments solely with his mouth and fingers.
Not long afterwards Maximani released “Drop This Beat” that entered the dance floor Spotify Digster lists and quickly got more than 200,000 spins.
With a personal, emotional text about a lost love combined with a razor sharp beat that cuts through the heart’ Maximani hope to take the next step in his career.
Maline as a songwriter had successes in Asia with music that has been laying on the top charts for months with the Korean girlband Red Velvet, (the song ”Fool” on the album Russian Roulette). She’s been writing music for Lithuania and Moldova for their competitions before ESC and has also written music for swedish artists such as Rebecka Karlsson, (winner of Idol). Maline is currently focusing on new material for herself.
Maline thinks that the collaboration with Maximani has been natural from the start and that they complement each well. She says that the tune ”Longer Road” is just one out of many songs they’ll end up doing together. She feels like the storyline and the vibe of the song came to them quickly and that it felt like they just needed to put all the pieces together. ”It’s definitely a pleasure to sing and to be part of this one.”
Maline is an artist and a songwriter who’s originally from Borås, but is based in Stockholm, Sweden since a few years back. She started performing and writing songs at a young age. She grew up in a household where music surrounded her daily. Either it was her father playing blues on the piano, her sister Wiktoria wailing away to a new Whitney Houston song or Malin singing and playing new music in the living room. Music was always around her, and maybe that’s why she decided in a very young age that she wanted to be in the music industry.
She signed her first contract with the label Songs of Sweden just a short time after she moved to Stockholm. Through them she got introduced to the industry and today she is singing and writing with some of the top producers in Sweden
