“Just when you think you’ve sussed Viennese singer/rapper/producer, Mavi Phoenix, she switches things up in incomparable fashion” – The Line of Best Fit
Following on from the release of recent tracks ‘Yellow’, ‘Bite’, ‘Trends’, and acclaimed debut EP ‘Young Prophet’ last year, Austria’s Mavi Phoenix releases her new single ‘Ibiza’.
‘Ibiza’ is probably Mavi’s most intimate song so far, providing sound and story for difficult relationships. Speaking about ‘Ibiza’ Mavi says, “It’s my soundtrack for when you realise that you don’t fit together, but it’s super hard to let go and you get stuck in reminiscence.”
The 22-year old Mavi Phoenix is originally from Linz, Austria and now living in Vienna, could be said to have an unlikely background for international relevance.
Mavi Phoenix begun singing, rapping and producing at just 11 years old. In that time, she has developed her own distinct style of music production. She founded her own label ‘LLT Records’ where she releases all her work which caught the attention of international tastemakers such as i-D, Nylon, The Line of Best Fit, The Fader and COLORS who hosted a performance of ‘Yellow’.
This summer has already seen Mavi Phoenix perform at multiple European festivals, including The Great Escape, Primavera Sound, Roskilde and Melt!. Her first European headline tour will follow this Autumn.
Last month, as a reaction to cruel and vicious comments from internet trolls, Mavi produced ‘Los Santos’ within a day, shot a video and dropped it spontaneously. The song caught the attention of many, including platinum selling Italian DJ/Producer Crookers who made their own distinct version of it.
