 In the world of major players in dance music, Maxi Jazz as part of Faithless is undisputedly one of the biggest live acts on the circuit. With an impressive career spanning eleven years, the band have scored numerous hits across the globe including the massive  Insomnia and God Is A DJ all featuring the outfits' trademark mixture of emotive, uplifting music alongside Maxi's unmistakable lyrical flow.

In May 2006 Tiësto became the worldwide ambassador for Dance4Life a charity organisation that create awareness amongst young people about the still growing AIDS/ HIV problem. His role is to use his position as one of the top DJs in the world to help get the message out there, and one of his first tasks being to create a Dance4Life anthem that will reach dance floors across the globe.

 Tiësto: "The way Dance4Life engages young people around the world to do something about the HIV/AIDS problem is very powerful. They offer young people an attractive way to make a contribution and reward them with a spectacular event. The combination of serious content and entertainment assures that Dance4Life gets young people on the move ". 

Maxi Jazz was subsequently approached to translate the Dance4Life message into song lyrics and to lend his unique voice to the project. As Maxi enthusiastically became involved in the project, these two have gone onto produce a track where Maxi's words and Tiësto's music intertwine into a dynamic piece of music.

 In 2006 Dance4Life is actively working in twelve countries; Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, Tanzania, The Netherlands, UK & Vietnam.

In all of these countries NCOs (National Concept Owners) are organising Dance4Life events for thousands of young people where they will be involved in the Dance4Life Schools Project starting this September. The Schools Project, which is life skills driven, culminates in a huge dance event on the Saturday before World AIDS Day (November 25th). Every participating Dance4Life country will bring together over a hundred thousand dance fans worldwide through satellite links. 

At a time when overcoming the massive issue of Sexually Transmitted Diseases is high on most governments priority lists, this single could not come at a more pertinent time.
