90's International Recording Artist Maxx Signs With Nene Musik
Maxx is a famous '90s Eurodance duo act best known in Europe for the hit singles “Get-A-Way,” “No More (I Can’t Stand It)” and “You Can Get It.” The act was formed in Berlin, Germany in 1993 by music executive David Brunner (a.k.a. The Hitman) and music producer Juergen Wind (a.k.a. George Torpey). By mid-1994, Maxx had quickly grown to become one of Europe’s new dance music sensations due to their creative mixture of ragga style rap, female singing, and distinctive dancefloor beats.
“Get-A-Way,” the debut Maxx single, featured vocals by rapper Gary Bokoe (a.k.a. Gary B.) and singer Samira Besic. When the single was released on October 1993, it quickly became a Top 10-hit in Germany. It later took the Top-5 spot in the UK, Austria, Sweden, Netherlands and the Top-10 spot in Switzerland and Norway. The single was later certified Gold in Germany and Silver in the UK. By mid-1994, “Get-A-Way” reached a sum total of 1.1 million in European record sales.
In response to the massive commercial success of “Get-A-Way,” plans were made for a second single, an album, new music videos and a massive marketing campaign throughout Europe. The quick departure of Besic from Maxx brought in her official replacement; singer-songwriter Linda Meek who was discovered by the Maxx producers in early 1994. Meek recorded vocals for the second single “No More (I Can’t Stand It)” which also became a Top-10 hit like its predecessor. During the height of the popularity the two singles in mid-1994, Meek and Bokoe toured all over Western Europe and in Canada as a live duo act. The two performed live on popular music chart TV programs like Top of the Pops, Bravo TV, Dance Machine, Superclassifica Show and various MTV Festivals in Europe.

The album also produced the third Maxx hit “You Can Get It” which ranked No. 21 in UK and No.13 in Finland. The final Maxx singles "I Can Make You Feel Like" and "Move Your Body" were released in Europe in 1995 before the group officially broke up late that same year.
