After racking up hours behind the decks in darkened basements and rooftops of Los Angeles and London respectively, Maddy Maia has become a key tastemaker in the Los Angeles electronic music, and also holds the position of VP A&R for iconic British independent label Ninja Tune as her day job.
Maddy Maia founded SOS Music in 2020 with DJ Tottie after the pair met in LA. After discovering a shared love of diverse underground music, Maia and Tottie’s bond grew strong via throwing events, hosting a monthly radio show and later DJing as Sisters of Sound. The SOS Music imprint was the natural next step in the pair’s progression as curators. Recently signing a label deal with !K7, its goal is to seek out diverse underground talent and amplify their voice or community, whilst championing diversity on all sides of the industry.
Maddy's music influences and styles span wide across the spectrum of experimental dance music, ranging from leftfield house, italo disco, orchestral ambient sounds, not forgetting a nod to her youth growing up in the UK rave scene. Her first single is out October 23rd 2020 via SOS Music.
