Since she began DJing and producing in 1999, Maayan has racked up an impressive discography. As Miss Fitz,
she has released EPs on Raum…musik, Freak n' Chic, Contexterrior and Circus Company; she also travels in disguise as
Laverne Radix, with singles for Oslo's Love Letters from Oslo and for Raum. March 2009 also marks the release of
Maayan's debut release under her own name: "Night Long" (on Japanese label PowerShovel), an intimate album woven
together out of recordings of Cuba's best contemporary instrumentalists that later on that year was followed by an EP on
the ever changing Perlon.
The diversity of Mayaan's sound is no doubt a result of an unusually global upbringing. Born in Tel Aviv, she lived in the
Mediterranean city for most of her life, studying multimedia and, following a six-month stay in New York, beginning to DJ
bars and small parties. Tel Aviv isn't a big place, though, and so when Maayan came to feel that she had hit a wall in her
home town, she packed her bags and set off to travel the world. Argentina was her ultimate destination. But after a sixmonth
stint in Amsterdam, she found her way to Berlin, which turned out to be exactly she was looking for. Inspiration
was everywhere, from the avant-garde Club Transmediale festival to Jamie Lidell's experiments in live sampling to, of
course, the city's legendary underground party scene. She soaked up everything, building up her studio and
experimenting with different sounds and processes, gradually inching towards the dance floor. Seven years later, she
remains in Berlin, making music and molding the contours of the city's clubs to fit her own inimitable vision.
Maayan shapes sound to fit her own singular sensibilities—a strategy that has resulted in a significant and growing body
of recorded work and a reputation as a talented, versatile DJ who unerringly takes listeners to special, unexpected
places. It's impossible to reduce Maayan's productions and DJ sets to a single sound, but certain qualities prevail: a
loping, swinging, hips-and-ass-friendly sense of the groove; a bubbling sense of funk; a keen sense of timbre and tone
color, with a wooly low end and crystalline highs. It's also possible to discern a certain sense of humor, as well—nothing
over the top, simply the occasional wink or sly grin as a riff steps out and takes its star turn. Like the best musicians,
Maayan's work is all about communication. No wonder she understand the dance floor so well.
EP COMMENTS
Finally a strong female frontier of techno producers are taking the limelight, none more prolific than Maayan
Nidam, previously known as Miss Fitz, who here follows up her Perlon bomb with a stunning package for Freak
n’Chic.
A tactile collection of tracks, these three productions engage the listener on a journey into the heart of this impressive
female talent. Commencing with the rolling frequencies and jovial melodies of ‘Perplexday,’ before reaching the magnetic
pulses of ‘You Break Me’ and culminating with ‘The Road To Recovery,’ an eerie yet remarkably charming endeavour.
Maayan continues to develop her style with each release and this is yet another collection that marks her as a talent
worth paying serious attention to in the coming months.
Ten years ago Maayan Nidam began to produce electronic music. Since that time she has racked up an impressive
discography - as Miss Fitz on Raum…musik, Freak n' Chic, Contexterrior and Circus Company; disguised as Laverne
Radix with singles for Oslo and last year began to see her use own name for the first time. Since then Maayan Nidam has
become a familiar title through EPs on Perlon, a full-length on PowerShovelAudio, a huge RA podcast and further
materialis promised on Wolf + Lamb and B-Pitch.
The diversity of Mayaan's sound is no doubt a result of an unusually global upbringing. Born in Tel Aviv, she has made a
home in New York, Amsterdam and now finds favour in the party capital of Berlin, making music and molding the contours
of the city's clubs to fit her own inimitable vision.
