The most-compelling DJ and diva combo of the last year, the musical marriage of Offer Nissim and songwriter/vocalist Maya Simantov has resulted in some gorgeous offspring, including such major hits as First Time, Alone, That’s The Way I Like It and On My Own.

This two-disc set is essentially a greatest hits package, but also includes a secondary disc of re-mixes and newer tracks, such as Be My Boyfriend and Perfect Love. Nissim provides the lush, scenic soundscapes for Maya’s sweet voice to occupy and she provides the lyrics. The drama is high, but her vocals never overwhelm. Re-mixes by Hector Fonseca and Peter Rauhofer effectively reshape some of the material, which remains alluring no matter how it’s reworked or repackaged.

To purchase, go to Star69 Records:
