Mavi Phoenix live im Flex.
The 22 year-old, hailing from Austria with her roots in Syria, could be proclaimed as the most unlikely backgrounds for a credible, traditional rapper, but talent like this nonetheless rises regardless of geography.
There’s an incredible use of imagery in Janet Jackson which is loose at best related to the hit- maker sharing the track title. It’s instead about “the feeling of when you go big and are really confident” explains Mavi Phoenix, continuing “but then you still know something isn't quite right and feels kind of odd. When writing this song I imagined what it would be like to have made it and also thought of the bittersweet aspects that come with it.”
Mavi Phoenix started singing, rapping and producing at the young age of just eleven. In that time she’s developed her own, distinctive style of music production. Her refreshing sound has saw previous songs on her Young Prophet EP be heralded in international tastemakers such as The FADER and placed her #1 on global Hype Machine Charts. Be sure to earmark her as One To Watch in 2018.
