Welcome Maja!

MajaMy name is Maja and I am a 26-year-old panda lover and DJ.

For the past four years I’ve lived in Malmö where I’ve studied media and communication. I finished my bachelor thesis this past spring and now I’m here at Emues as an intern, and that’s awesome!

Music has always been a natural part of my life. When I grew up I played classical cello and double bass, and that created a large interest for all kinds of music. I have spent a lot of time at dirty festivals and dark clubs just to get the perfect concert experience. From that the interest of contributing to the music scene grew. Since there are a lot of people who are more talented than I am at making music and playing it live, I decided that being a DJ was a perfect middle way. In that way I can enjoy music but also be a promoter and a perfomer!

I am super excited to work with Emues and help artists get their gig on!

Maja will be working with Emues in Malmö, Sweden. We are thrilled that Maja is joining the crew and we’re excited to add her coolness and ambition to our team. Get a taste of her favorite sounds through her Maja is the Intern @ Emues Spotify playlist:

A Sound Trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What’s pumpin’ in Kuala Lumpur?

The idea behind Emues, is that every artist should get booked wherever they’ve got fans! Without any geographical or social borders and without  financial risks. Being a Swedish start-up now with crew members in Tokyo, Japan (more about that in a blog post very soon) we wanted to learn more about what’s going on in Southeast Asia – as we want more cross-country and cross-continent tours to happen for upcoming artists!

Last week we had the chance to visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to meet up with some new friends. During our short trip we came across several great and inspiring people, venues, initiatives and artists putting up real cool shows pushing the independent music scene in the region forward.

Here are some highlights

Friendly meet-and tweet ups: At Midem this year we met Bunkface, Goldfish and Blink and Amanda Imani from Kuala Lumpur, and we had the chance to catch up with them. Goldfish and Blink are pumping it from the DJ both at Zouk, Bunkface are now out on tour Bunk Not Dead (check out their tour program), and Amanda Imani recently released her new album!

Hip-hop showcase: We had the chance to head to The Venue for a hip-hop showcase set up by the people behind The Movemint with friends.

World Music Day, Fête de la music: Celebrated by a huge crowd in the Bukit Bintang neighbourhood around great venues like No Black Tie and  The Establishment, these kids played a sweet instrumental piece.

Scuba diving with Malaysia’s Idol: Markus and Julia went scuba diving with Riz Zaizizi for his TV show ‘Arena Extreme ‘ on channel Astro 180 for RTM Tvi, hovering the amazing corals among eagle-rays, murrays and huge sea turtles. If you’re in Malaysia, be sure to tune in to Riz’s TV show.
