On her second EP for Contexterrior, Miss Fitz returns with two spaced-out tracks that continue her exploration of natural timbres within the tech-house domain.
Since her production debut just three years ago, Miss Fitz has made quite a name for herself. Especially fruitful for her was 2008, with her Nina Simone-sampling hit "Drifting On", a third EP for Raum Musik, and a full-length under her birth name Maayan Nidam for the Japan-based Phantom Sound & Vision. She also paired up with Vera to debut the project Mara Trax on Love Letters from Oslo, and worked with Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves for their sophomore EP as Uli Künkel. Whew!
Now, for her tenth 12" release as Miss Fitz, she continues to weave organic elements into hypnotic soul food for hungry dancers. These two cuts show Nidam's knack for infusing imagination into her work: "Dementia" features a distorted voice whispering the track's title, backed by a distinctive wind instrument melody, plus lots of primal percussion. It's detached, yet in-yo'-face. On the flip, "Woods" offers more of a bounce and thump, encouraging the listener to "work!", "jack!" and "boogie!" -- a jam for roller skating rinks on prehistoric Neptune.
