Mari Nordén aka Maja Skillz can be classified into many categories but at the end of the day, she is an all-around creative. The Olso-based singer, producer, artist and designer, who has morphed the sound of pop, electronica, trap and more, is creating truly exciting and brilliant music. Having been a part of the band Shy For Shore, her latest project finds her experimenting with vocal styles and textures like brush strokes on the palette, forming vivid pieces of fine art. The latest Maja Skillz release ‘FALL APRT’, is a documentation of a relationship gone awry, yet musically decorated with beautiful sonics of alt-pop, lush and rich. Expect a tidal wave of artistry in 2016 from the Norwegian mastermind.
For ColoRising Mixes 23, Maja Skillz has curated a playlist bursting with splashes of pop, electronica and even alt rock from acts like The Cure, FKA twigs, Grimes and more. Be prepared to enter a wonderland of rhythms.
