Miss Fitz - Woods / Dementia
1. Woods (Original Mix)
2. Dementia (Original Mix)
On her second EP for Contexterrior, Miss Fitz returns with two spaced-out tracksthat 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 namefor herself. Especially fruitful for her was 2008, with her Nina Simone-samplinghit "Drifting On", a third EP for Raum Musik, and a full-length under her birthname Maayan Nidam for the Japan-based Phantom Sound & Vision. She also paired upwith Vera to debut the project Mara Trax on Love Letters from Oslo, and workedwith Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves for their sophomore EP as Uli Kьnkel. Whew!
Now, for her tenth 12" release as Miss Fitz, she continues to weave organicelements into hypnotic soul food for hungry dancers. These two cuts show Nidam'sknack for infusing imagination into her work "Dementia" features a distortedvoice whispering the track's title, backed by a distinctive wind instrumentmelody, plus lots of primal percussion. It's detached, yet in-yo'-face. On theflip, "Woods" offers more of a bounce and thump, encouraging the listener to
"work!", "jack!" and "boogie!" -- a jam for roller skating rinks on prehistoricNeptune.
