(DTR/ Items & Things)
NYMA (aka Nima Chatrsimab) was born in Teheran and raised in Berlin. As a youth, inspired by the Techno Sunday rituals in milestone clubs such as E-Werk and Tresor, he began DJing in 1996 and producing a year later.
Enthralled with the music scene, technology and logistics of the craft, he completed the audio engineering program at the acclaimed SAE Institute. With this unique education and his dedication to the production of techno, NYMA worked as the technical support for software company Ableton and as the touring/studio support engineer for artists such as Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Magda, Moritz Von Oswald and Loco Dice, gaining invaluable knowledge in the process. He later worked on the 4-deck Traktor controller design and most recently with German company Faderfox, for whom he designed the technical gear output of the VERSUS DJ controller, one of the most technically advanced available today.
NYMA’s production and remix credits include labels such as Desolat, My Favorite Robot and Items & Things. In 2014 he released his first album in collaboration with Carreno is LB ‚Lunar Fringe‘, as well as beginning a free download project with Magda called Define-The-Relationship aka DTR. These releases pay tribute to classic artists such as Yello, Chaka Khan, Jody Watley, Joy Division and LL Cool J. 2015 saw NYMA place a strong emphasis on his personal label ITS ALL IN YOU. It operates as a platform for electronic music with a deeper spiritual meaning and content. The releases are based on certain themes reflected in both the music and the way it is presented.
Energetic, positive, experienced and open-minded, NYMA’s creative abilities have no boundaries. Inspired by color, frequency, light and phenomena and shaped by the norms and forbidden fruits of musical expression past, present and future, NYMA delivers deep, groovy and twisted experimental dance music. He is a live performer who incorporates the best elements of technology and dance music culture in its evolution to define the future. A dance floor experience with NYMA is one unlike any other, a musical representation of his varied experiences and eternally forward-facing approach.
