Born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Dorchester, Maxie J began singing in the church choir with her four younger sisters at the age 9, and later as a member of the gospel choir at Boston University. While getting her masters at NYU in Interactive Telecommunications, Maxi discovered the allure of New York’s underground nightclub scene. Inspired by the amazing house music she heard at the New York premier clubs Tunnel, Roxy and Twilo, Maxi began writing, recording and performing tracks of her own professionally. Her debut single ”I Appreciate” on Jellybean Records was a breakout hit at Miami Winter Music Conference . But it was her left field house version of “Climb Every Mountain” which caught the ear of superstar DJ and producer Junior Vasquez.
“Insecurities” (V1.0) features the new sound of Junior Vasquez; a Big Room Energy House Anthem by Junior’s long term production partner Joe Carrano; and a Sound Factory inspired House Remix by Fumi from Japan.
