The newly christened Nightwave takes up the mantle for the sixth Juno Plus podcast.
Formerly known as 8Bitch, Maya Medvesek was born in Slovenia but musically matured in the rich cultural surrounds of Glasgow in the company of LuckyMe and the labels that pooled together to form Numbers. Having first come to our attention via last year’s Equinox EP on Seed Records, the producer has relocated to London and is set for wider recognition in the coming months.
Alongside a long awaited forthcoming EP for Svetlana Industries, Nightwave is also ready to unleash a slew of remixes which further showcase her unique synth heavy melding of techno and hip-hop futurism. This Nightwave mix is perhaps the most immediate contribution to our podcast series so far, expertly veering between sounds old and new as well as including a smattering of her own productions and some R&B heaters.
“This mix contains a variety of tunes, from my early influences like Drexciya and Dopplereffekt to people whose music I’m really feeling at the moment like Lone and Melé,” Maya told Juno Plus.
“I worship Underground Resistance so there’s also a couple of remixes by UR members (Mark Flash and Rolando) and a couple of my tunes as well, plus some Aaliyah and Ciara.”
Speaking about the immediate future for Nightwave, Maya said: “My next EP is out soon on Svetlana Industries as well as a bunch of remixes for My Panda Shall Fly, Sleepyhead and Sleeps In Oysters.”
Expanding on the name change she added: “All my future projects will be under Nightwave, I’ve decided to stop using 8Bitch as it was simply too PR restrictive and wasn’t really a good representation of my music.”
