International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Maayan Nidam’s music makes an authentic claim to diversity: growing up in Tel Aviv, Mediterranean, Jewish, Arabic and Eastern European traditional song wafted through the air alongside pop hits and rock ballads; youthful world travels added more layers to the mix, bringing her to Berlin’s underground clubs, where her global sensibility took root in techno.

A club native tuned into the crowd, Nidam not only finds inspiration among her surroundings and numerous contemporaries, but in her own surreal sound-laced dreams and the enigmatic possibilities of her machines and instruments. DJing and producing undulating techno with smart, unexpected flourishes and cherished samples since the late 90s, she’s recorded under her various monikers, only debuting under her own name with a jazz-inflected album on Japan’s Powershovel Audio in 2009. Nidam also collaborates fearlessly with Frankfurt-based Vera Heindel as DJ/production duo Mara Trax, exploiting their shared love for old-school deep house grooves – she’s also spent time in electro band The Waves & Us and worked with Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves as Uli Künkel.

Known for clever, hip-shaking DJ sets and her "space monkeys unite!" nights at Berlin’s Watergate and Arena Club, Nidam will close off one of the MUTEK Nocturne nights at Nitsa Club.
