The future of Maxumi…

Written by Michael

As the creator of this site, I am massively proud to call Maxumi my creation. Thanks to everybody that has helped out over the past two years, this site has been a great achievement.

Some of our achievements:

  • Exclusive interviews with the worlds biggest dance acts – including Avicii, Wolfgang Gartner, John Dahlback, Norman Doray, Judge Jules, Riva Starr, DJ Marky, Foreign Concept, Tamara Sky – and so many more. Every single one of you was a pleasure to talk to.
  • Over 250,000 hits. By no means huge, especially in comparison to other dance music sites. But to think over a quarter of a million people have visited this just feels…massive.
  • Receival of widespread industry praise for quality of journalism and support of underground artists.
  • Dozens of Wikipedia citations.

So why this post? Simply because, times are a changing for Maxumi!

First of all, I am sure you are aware we have had trouble with our hosting. Our site is very slow for reasons we cannot control. So, this week, we will be moving host. What this means is that there will more than likely be some downtime, and it’s quite possible it could take a few days to get everything back to normal. Therefore, during this transition period, I kindly ask you all to bare with me. I will get there.

Secondly, I am dying for young people who love dance music and love writing to get involved. I need you. As always, I can’t pay you simply because the site makes no money. The advertising barely covers the cost of our hosting. What you do get though, is access to exclusive PR and the chance to interview your favourite superstars. You get to do what you want, however much you want, when you want. You can stop whenever you want, and have something really rad to stick on your CV. In my mind, that’s a damn good deal and so far about 12/13 people have been smart enough to make use of it!

So please, come and help! Send me an email: michael[dot]gunner09[at]gmail[dot]com.

Lastly, thank you all those of you who read the website and come back. You people are awesome and I hope you can be patient and keep coming back for more Maxumi-goodness. With your support, I can make all the amazing Maxumi ideas in my head come true.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
