During those early days electronic music was something completely new not only in his small hometown, but also in Bulgaria, and the sounds that came through the speakers caught teachers and fellow students off-guard - amazed and speechless. In 1998 Maiz helped his cousin - Versus - set up the first electronic music night in his hometown in the infamous Opium Club. However, unfavorable coincidences halted his DJ-ing attempts in 1999 and Maiz had to focus his attention on boring schoolwork. Although he wasn't allowed to pursue his hobby any more, Maiz continued his love affair with electronic music with even stronger passion, focusing his attention primarily on the relentless techno sounds and the beautiful house melodies - the two styles he has kept closest to this day. Fast forward to fall 2006 in Philadelphia, USA, and you'll find out that Maiz had just fulfilled his most sincere dream - he was able to lay his hands on a pair of Technics 1200s, a mixer and a handful of records. Long hours of practice soon followed and in a short time Maiz mastered the art of creative track blending. Maiz indulges in playing both house and techno.
His house sets are heavily influenced by the sound of NYC - they are an exquisite mixture of heavy bass lines, deep sounds, tribal drums & progressive melodies. Among his favorite labels are Stereo, Yoshitoshi, Twisted, Beatfreak, the Pure Music Label Group, Bedrock, GU, Hope - just to name a few. While playing Maiz always strives to create an eclectic blend of quality house grooves that relentlessly move the dancefloor. Read more on Last.fm.
