Maya and Vanya are a sister duo from Croatia, who have spent half of their life based in New Zealand, where they have been involved with music and spinning records, amongst other things.

Grew up listening to a wide array of music from Macchu Pitchu of the Andes, Gypsy Kings and Ladysmith Black Mambazo to The Beatles, Talking Heads and Rolling Stones. Gloria Gaynor to Larry Levan as well as funk and hip hop icons DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and Bambaataa.

Their eclectic, fun sets and vast knowledge in music encompassing cross-cultural style, as well as great stage presence have made them become some of the most in-demand young DJs. Having a slightly different music taste from one another, put together they create a unique blend of music to get the dancefloor pumping. With their styles ranging from upfront House, Tech-house, Old School to the genres they are becoming ever so familiar for such as Tropical and Tribal House music mixed with Dub and Big Bass Lines. But their sound is unique and ever evolving!
