The Hardstyle scene is abuzz with one up and coming female artist in particular recently: Malua! From hosting her own club nights and festival area, to an outstanding debut release; the past 12 months have been an impressive journey into the spotlight for this promising Dutch DJ. Make You Dance Bookings are very happy to welcome Malua to their diverse artist roster as she continues on her climb to the top throughout 2015!
Malua’s love for hardstyle began when she got the Qlimax 2002 CD as a gift. Years later, she went to her first hardstyle festival: Defqon.1. 2006. From that moment on, she visited many hardstyle festivals and parties. In 2012, she started mixing and putting these mixes online. After a few months this led to a request to play at Defqon.1 2013. Exactly seven years after visiting her first hardstyle festival, she played at the Defqon.1 afterparty, in the Q-dance Radio area.
After that performance more bookings came along, such as Sequence, Dangerouzmind, Focus, Bass Academy, Shock & C.R.A.F.T. Besides that, she hosted a series of hardstyle events at Feu, Drachten. These went by the name Malua presents: Volume. Her first track is a collab with the one and only High Voltage, It´s called “Back and Forth” and was released in September 2014, on Sys-X. The track has received amazing support by several DJ’s, such as B-front and Titan and got played at Hard Bass and Qapital!
Malua also hosted two radio shows for Q-dance presents NEXT, which were broadcasted worldwide, and a 2014 highlight was co-hosting of her own area at Q-BASE called Don’t Feed After Midnight. It was an incredible experience! 2015 already looks to be a breakthrough year for Hardstyle’s latest talent, with a lot of exciting new music and performances on the horizon.
