It keeps me going and keeps me inspired.🤍
Have the best weekend.
Let your colours shine and never give up whatever life throws at you.
I'm very excited for this special next release with upcoming producer Peter Dennis, OUT 10th March 2023, Pre-save/Listen here.
Peter Dennis got in touch with an instrumental for me to write to last November right around the time the Colorado Springs Nightclub shooting happened. Feeling moved by the tragic events, it only took me only a few minutes to write the lyrics:
I see colours shining
I see love crying
I see broken hearts that just wanted to dance
Broken lives that just wanted to live
So let’s stand and fight
Let the colours live
Let their hearts shine
It is tragic that someone could not only go around with a gun shooting people, but that these events happen aimed at the LGBTQ community.
Having grown up in a household with adverse opinions about feelings for the opposite sex when I asked about it as a young child then later having been targeted by evangelical Christians that made me face the decision of either believing in Jesus or going to hell at the age of 11 that were of much of the same opinion as I encountered at home, I admittedly did not spend much time considering how I felt about the topic growing up. Unfortunately, it wasn't until my mid-twenties when I finally managed to break out of the religious cult that labels itself "Christianity".
I was guilty all the same for some years of my life for not making enough room for people whatever their preference. I never attacked anyone, love for the person was always in the centre for me, even though misguided.
My mind sometimes wonders if I would have explored more if it hadn't been for the people in my life telling me that feeling attraction to the opposite sex was either a result of a non-functional upbringing (which I surely did have but had no intention of proving the messenger right) or that indeed it was the devil's temptation.
Thank f***(cause I don't thank God anymore... maybe the universe as some metaphor in a mystic way) I managed to break out of both of these destructive belief systems. I have a huge amount of empathy for anyone that is targeted with these damaging opinions, let alone experience any sort of abuse or violence over it.
"Broken Hearts" pays tribute to all the victims of the Colorado Springs shooting but also to all the small and huge adverse actions and reactions anyone has experienced that doesn't fit the "norm".
How I wish I could go back to that 10 or something year old girl that was me that innocently asked "what if a girl likes a girl" and give her a very different answer than the one I received and echoed in my mind for the following 15 years of my life and lived a lot more open minded.
I hope this release is full of hope for a better future and a reminder to hold each other up in love.
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful festive time and say THANK YOU for your support this year.
2022 saw the release of "Close Your Eyes" in August which was very well received, followed up by "Nightfall" exactly a month ago that had equal success, hitting the Top 10 Melodic House and Techno Releases Charts for a week.
Filming the Music Video for "Close Your Eyes" on Lanzarote where I am currently spending these Christmassy days was a magical experience. The volcanic landscape keeps on inspiring me. A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of doing a couple of photoshoots where which you can enjoy in this page.
I've really loved releasing under my own name and getting music out there that's 100%me. However, I am also looking forward to the next release, which is another collab with Arsen Gold who I love working with. "Whirlwind" is due to be released 6th Jan 2023. It's already been played by a bunch of shows and I hope you will love another vocal Trance track from Arsen and myself.
“Close Your Eyes” is a vocal driven Deep House track that takes you through the emotion of painting landscapes in words representing a state of mind to be free and powerful. The chorus will make you want to dance and the breakdown will get the clubs going. The single by Maya Wolff will be accompanied by her own music production video shot in the Canarian desert which ancient surroundings perfectly captures the mood of the song.
It's been a rather long time since my last release. I had to focus on my health, slowly recovering from Covid over the last 2.5 years but be assured, I've never stopped writing. "Close Your Eyes" will be followed by more regular releases already lined up to give you a more steady stream of my music.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to every single one that has kept in touch over these couple of challenging years and kept the music streaming.
I'm full of motivation and zest for life and creating more music.
I haven't written a personal blog in a while, so I thought it was about time! The last couple of months have been exciting releasing the singles "Here Right Now", "City Lights" plus their remixes and videos all leading up to this weeks' EP release "Fast Forward".
Please see my Press Release below to read more about the EP:
"Fast Forward is Maya Wolff’s Debut EP as a dance music artist in her own right. Coming to all stores 2nd December 2020 on Wolff Recordings
This 5 track release of fresh genre spanning club music combines commercial dance pop, deep house, electronica, with hints of breakbeats, darker vibes, fast lyrics and high notes.
Not bending to the rules of what is expected of a vocalist and songwriter within one genre, “Fast Forward” perfectly mirrors Maya Wolff’s capability as an artist - versatile and with a vision to stand out and attract a wide audience of dance music lovers.
The singles from the EP “Here Right Now” and “City Lights” with remixes by Steve Brian and Austin Leeds have attracted a huge amount of radio play including on BBC, features in podcasts and mixes such as “Enhanced sessions 582” and both entered the Top 10 in the Beatport genre charts.
The EP kicks of with track “If Only” that will want to make you break out into routine on the dance floor. “Rise up” is a track that will stick in your head with its slower vibe in contrast to final track “Running” that saw it’s creation during a caffeine infused, late-night writing session."
