Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Maiia:
Psychedelic chillout


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Maiia:
I'm in love with the music from early ages - when i was twelve, i studied to play a bass guitar and became a part of heavy metal band. My first steps in music production were based just on self-education - all that i could learn reading the tutorials, forums and watching the videos. Being an adult i went to study the music theory in one of the rock-schools in Moscow, and the borders of the musical Universe expanded for me. Since that time i'm experimenting with different time signatures and tonality in my music. Music is the main landmark of my life, so in 2014 i founded the psychedelic chillout label Mystic Sound Records which became the base for develoment of many talented music producers all over the world. I continue my personal musical career as well, producing music for my two project - downtempo and Goa trance. I've just released the new album of my chillout project "Maiia - Love Is The Answer".


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Maiia:
My musical taste was evolving with time and switched to electronic music in 2005 when i visited Goa for the first time. I was enchanted by the mystery of psychedelic music. The same year i started to play chillout music as a DJ and one year after I tried to produce my own music. I was so excited by this process that I was dedicating all my free time to read the music making tutorials, set up my first project studio and released the first EP "Forest Magic" in 2008.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Maiia:
A Perfect Circle Judith


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?
