BIOGRAPHY

Growing up in Manchester gave easy access to it’s rising dance scene, something that the North West of England was renowned for. Inspired by pirate radio and the pioneering sounds of many upcoming DJ’s of the time, house music ignited a passion in this feisty northern girl and so Miss Mavrik was born. From this dedication came the idea to invest in some decks.

With years of hard work Miss Mavrik never gave up on her pursuit. This unshakable belief in her ability was instilled from a young age where she trained as an athlete holding several regional and county records. She was placed in the top 3 at her chosen event in every year of competition while reaching international standards, competing for England and Great Britain as a junior over 400m hurdles.

After moving south to London her DJ debut came in early 2005 on the off chance that a friend needed cover. This was the start of numerous offers to play throughout London, the UK and abroad.

During 2009 Miss Mavrik completed her 2nd season in Ibiza, also holding residencies in Istanbul, Rome, London, Madrid and St Tropez. That year saw her play at renowned superclubs around Europe ranging from Pacha to 360. She also travelled throughout Europe as resident DJ on The Fuel Tour, playing in over 13 countries in as many weeks.

2010 was equally convincing, playing a mix of club house/ progressive she performed in countries including Spain, Italy, Ibiza, Belgium, Russia, Bahrain, Poland, Syria, Dubai, Bosnia, Croatia, Germany, Luxembourg and France.

Her genre being house and progressive meant that moving into this theme of production was undoubtedly the next step. Her first track release was a remix of the Tom Nevile and The Stafford Brothers single “Come my way”. Working alongside Juan Kidd to create a pumping house version of the track which was released on Toolroom Records early last year. Miss Mavrik’s track “Road to Hell” was released on Prozaic Records in November 2010, while her most recent track with Daniel De Brujin and Amba Afra named “The Monday After” was released on Baroque Records.

This year not only saw the start of Miss Mavrik’s own club night ‘Rewind’ but it also saw the start of several radio shows aired globally. She hosted a monthly session on m2o radio/Rome, the largest electronic music station in Italy and a weekly progressive session on London’s foremost underground radio station, Unknown Fm.

The “Rewind” party held @ The Light Box (London), was a collaboration between Miss Mavrik and 4 DJ/ producers from Italy and Germany, enticing the finest of London’s underground revellers. Guest DJ’s have included the likes of James What, Dan Berkson and Arnaud le Texier.

This allowed her to play the music she loved and has taken her from club performances to international tours playing alongside artists such as Xpress 2, Smokin Jo and Felix da house cat. That summer she headlined at events which included the likes of Fedde Le Grand, Laidback Luke, Afrojack, Tom Craft, Benni Benassi and Chuckie.

Moving on to 2012 came ‘Haymaker’, a collaboration with Pi Mandrake was released on Lowbit Records in May. This track received strong tastemaker support with Jaytech listing it in his showcase of new upcoming, underground progressive talent.

With another busy schedule of international gigs her summer season concluded with a 4 date tour of Brasil. This took her from Rio, Sao Paulo, Brasillia and Belo Horizante, playing to packed out venues at the likes of Deputermadre and Q5 Club. This trip was succeeded by another trip to the America’s one month later where she played to a full house at Plaza Condeza, Mexico City.

2014 started with a world tour kicking off in Chile with Hedkandi and German tour which took her to support the Brand New Heavies in Berlin. This was boosted by another strong electro release entitled “The Drive” which was a collaboration with Dj EQO, signed to Dutch label ‘strangers in Paradise”. From here came an exciting new project for Miss Mavrik in creating a new female dj duo with Romanian Dj Wanda. Their new alias ‘Priism‘ recently released 2 separate Ep’s to US label KMS records which include the tracks, The Game, Gotta Run and City Living with Stay Strong (The journey Ep). Their last release “How you Feel” signed to Jango Music gained strong tastemaker support from Steve Aoki, Fedde Le Grande and Alex Kenji.

Miss Mavrik’s latest solo release was another addition to the Strangers in Paradise label,  ‘Little Miracle’ Ft Gary O Brien’. The release came with a strong remix package mixed by favourites such as Ron Carroll. This is to be complimented by two further tracks due for release in early 2015. ‘I cant wait‘ is a Dutch House, upfront banger, a collaboration with Bombasquad featuring Fab Morvan formerly known as ‘Milli Vanilli’. The video shot along with with a slick London backdrop is set for great things as is to be the focus of an international remix contest. The second release is a remix by ‘Mavrik, LBS and EQO‘ of ‘mind over matter‘ again ft. Fab Morvan, the original version upped the stakes recently being premiered on the site of ‘Oprah Winfrey‘.

2016 has had an exciting start with the release of “Love has left us” a Mavrik / LBS collaboration featuring South African vocalist Lokka. The track received strong tastemaker feedback from the likes of Eric Morrillo, Amine Edge, Richie Hawtin and Jessie Garcia, while it entered the UK Music week chart as a highest new entry peaking at No.5.

Alongside of her Dj and radio work Miss Mavrik turned her hand to the television studio, cast to appear in 6 episodes of ‘Peter Andre’s Bad Boyfriend Club’on ITV2. Acting on the panel of judges she helped to decide who were the winning contestant’s in the competition each week. The show was aired for 6 weeks throughout summer. She has also appeared as the face of Kam music and The 00DJ, while last year she shot the cover for Trend Music Magazine (Italy) and appeared as the May calender addition for Calendance Music Magazine (Italy).
