The Bunker Jewish Christmas Party with Miss Fitz and The Schwartz at Public Assembly
The Bunker Jewish Christmas Party with Miss Fitz and The Schwartz at Public Assembly 70 North 6th Street 21+, 10p-4a
Miss-Fitz has been spinning and producing music since 1999. Her releases on Raum Musik, Freak n' Chic, Circus Company, Kalimari as Uli Kunkel (together with Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss), and on Oslo as Mara Trax (with Vera Heindel) have been remixed by Ricardo Villalobos, Sascha Dive, Jeff Samuel, Ryan Crosson, Mossa, Pheek, and others. Although based in Berlin, Fitz keeps on the move, spinning a mixture of underground house and techno around the globe in venues such as Colors Studio Tokyo, Robert Johnson Frankfurt, Club Transmediale Berlin, Bunker NY, Decadance Belgium, Mono-club Amsterdam , Pacotek Jerusalem, Hive & Piping Switzerland and many more. 2008 was a huge year for Mayaan, with the breakout success of Mara Trax, and her Nina-Simone-sampling summer anthem "Drifting" on Contexterrior getting played by everyone.
The Schwartz is Halcyon's Shawn Schwartz. The Schwartz almost never DJs in public, but couldn't pass up the offer to play at The Bunker Jewish Christmas Party. He will be playing an opening set that will essentially be an eclectic mixtape of all Jewish artists, "from Herb Alpert to Stan Getz to Kiss to 3rd Bass to Morgan Geist and Josh Wink - like Adam Sandler's Hannukah Song, but illustrated in sound." The Schwartz is a true pillar of the New York electronic music community, and has given countless promoters, DJs, and producers their first real change to get involved. He even let the Bunker's Spinoza throw his first weekly party (Undercity) at the original Halcyon location on Smith Street. We are honored to have The Schwartz join us on this special Jewish Christmas night
