Episode 19 - Maura
Maurais passion for music naturally progressed into a lifelong affair when she instinctively decided to buy decks in 2005. Since then she has become a vinyl junkie, and has been on a constant hunt for records, always with an ear to the underground. Maura started playing at private house parties for notoriously long hours, but only after a few years she was given the opportunity to play several times for Clandestino at The End & AKA, sharing the decks with some of the industryis heavyweights. Gigs followed, playing at a range of venues across London: from the gritty clubs like The Key, Herbal, and Platinum to the more upscale bars like The Burlington, No. 5, and The Driver to name a few. Word spread about her dynamic sets so she even played for the uber-cool Kitchen Party, and events in her native Italy.
Over 2008 and 2009 Maura was co-promoter and resident of !KNUF with her partner in crime Jordi Mas their regular soiree in East London has grown from strength to strength, giving them the opportunity to play alongside well-respected DJs on the scene like Giles Smith, Miss Jools, Anthea, Johnny Rock and Luciano Esse. From 2009 Maura was asked to become resident of the WOO party, which has seen her play with up-and-coming talent like Giuseppe Cennamo and established artists like Noze, and will certainly continue to give her great exposure throughout London.
Her sound ranges from the warm sounds of deep house and Detroit house, to more driving and organic groove-based tracks with an element of funk.
