Maddy Maia

Producer, DJ, A&R for iconic British indie label Ninja Tune & co-label head of female focused !K7 imprint SOS Music, London born, LA based Maddy has spent the past few years quietly carving out her own path and shaping the face of independent dance music in the US.

Maddy has global radio residencies on Worldwide FM and Los Angeles station DUBLAB, and through her mostly female DJ sets, has become a key tastemaker in the LA dance & electronic scene, fiercely championing brand new electronic talent from women and gender minorities. She has taken her uplifting DJ sets everywhere from the sweaty clubs of NYC like Goodroom, to Coachella, Primavera and the Midway in SF, sharing the stage with everyone from Octo Octa + Eris Drew, Helena Hauff and Sherelle to Peggy Gou and Floating Points.

Maddy's music influences and styles span wide across the spectrum of experimental dance music, ranging from house, rave & disco to ambient sounds. Her first production, released last year on SOS, earned her the cover of Amazon’s Electronic Rising Artist playlist and critical acclaim from RA, Mixmag, DJ mag + to Flaunt Mag, The Wire and Stamp The Wax.
