After a string of singles with Clusterfunk (“Do Me Right”, “Deep Down”), Maria was in the studio with major DJ/producer, Sasha, for the recording of the single, “Be As One”, which went on to be a major hit for the duo, peaking at #17 on the official UK charts in 1995.
A year later, and Maria was making waves on the music scene once again, with the smash hit single, “One and One”, with the late Robert Miles. The duo scored #1 on the music charts in several European countries, including Belgium, Israel, Italy, Romania, Scotland, The Eurocharts Hot 100 and the US Dance Chart, as well as reaching an impressive #3 IN the UK. After this success, everyone wanted to work with Maria Nayler, and string of solo singles were culled from collaborations with Tilt and further productions from Sasha. In 1998, Maria released “Naked and Sacred”, which proved to be another major hit for her.
