[Audio] Maya Jane Coles’ ‘From The Dark’


Maya Jane Coles

Mistress of dreamlike floorfillers Maya Jane Coles makes her return to Anja Schneider’s Mobilee this week In the 3 ½ years since her last she’s gone from strength to strength, including releasing one of our favourite albums of recent times, Comfort. The From The Dark EP features three utterly intoxicated tune, including this one; the lead track. Check it out.

Including some vocal work from French singer Moggli, From The Dark is an enigmatic and haunting tune that revels in Maya’s uncanny knack of being able to make deep, ominous tracks feel unbelievably warm. Low grooves and subby bass dominate the soundtrack alongside an unrelenting booming kick; while Moggli’s throaty, soulful vocals seem to envelop the music and swirl around it. This is stuck on repeat.

It looks like Fabric were so pleased with hypnotic groove queen Maya Jane Coles’ edition of their fabric mix series, fabric 75: Maya Jane Coles, that they got all excited and decided to commit two of the tracks from the mix to vinyl. Released as a painfully limited edition 10”, the release features Premonition, Maya’s original track in fabric 75 (natch’) and London-based producer Paride Saraceni’s Dissolute. Check out Premonition below.

Premonition is deep and undulating electronics at it’s finest. Enigmatic and emotional, the track bathes you in waves of warm synths and enchanting loops. Recorded especially for fabric 75, Premonition combines a skippy solid beat with a haunting array of tones and textures that seem to worm their way under your skin. Haunting, but never dark, its an intoxicating track. The 10” is receiving a strictly limited run of 300 copies, available exclusively to fabricfirst members, of which we are not; so if anyone is and wants to do us a solid fave, hit us up in Twitter.

[Audio] Maya Jane Coles reMixes Bonobo’s ‘First Fires’



The latest slice of all-encompassing musical warmth coming from the queen of all things Deep and Techy, Maya Jane Coles, comes in the form of this reMix of Ninja Tune’s finest Bonobo’s, Grey Reverend featuring, First Fires. The ghostly and bassy original comes from Bonobo’s recent The North Borders album. The track serves as the album’s intro and takes on a whole new life in Coles’ hands.

The vocal croon of the song is actually quite well suited to Coles’ smokey take on House, it’s low tones acting as another instrument in MJC’s deep arsenal. Capturing the intensity and atmosphere of First Fires, Maya looses none of it’s emotional resonance, if anything she adds to the tracks mood with a plethora of warm, rounded synths and grumbling basses. All set to a nice shuffling UK House beat. Sink into this one.

[Audio] Maya Jane Coles reMixes Tiga Vs. Audion’s ‘Let’s Go Dancing’



Check out Maya Jane Coles’ reMix of Tiga Vs. Audition (Matthew Dear)’s hype inducing Let’s Go Dancing. Tiga’s most explosive track for al long while, Let’s Go Dancing caused a bit of a stir when it was released a couple of months ago, now with the release of the reMix EP looming we can wrap out ears around this, the one we were most looking forward to.

Maya takes things Deep and Techy with this one. Six minutes of hypnotic warehouse sounds with a fantasy twist. With a seeming nod to early Warp Bleep House Maya playfully skims magical melodies and psychedelic synths over to surface of a pounding House groove. The growling vocal refrain only adds to the enigmatic flavour of Maya’s mix. This one is going to get a serious club pounding, expect to be looing all sense of time on the dancefloor to this one very soon.

♫ Tiga Vs. Audion – Let’s Go Dancing (Maya Jane Coles Dancing In The Dark reMix)

Tiga Vs. Audion’s Let’s Go Dancing reMix package is coming 10th November and includes remixes from Maya Jane Coles, Breach, Solomun and joeFarr.

[Audio] Maya Jane Coles’ ‘No Stick’


Maya Jane Coles

No Stick is a bran new track from Maya Jane Coles that features on the Burning Bright (with Hercules And Love Affair’s Kim Ann Foxman) remix single released late last month. Burning Bright is one of our tunes of the year, but if you needed any more convicting to go out and grab yourself a copy, check out No Stick.

This is the perfect compliment to Maya’s amazing Comfort album, No Stick is no mere B-side. This is a deep, hypnotic, funky-as-hell dancefloor destroyer. Rumbling sine basslines, shuffling House beats and a sledgehammer vocal sample all join forces to deliver a slightly Dub influenced mesmerizing tune that you could really loose yourself in on the dancefloor.

Well this is the kind of thing that will get out interest! Our favourite purveyor of deep, mysterious, funky sounds Maya Jane Coles teaming up with top Swedish InustroElectroPop star Karin Park. Two artist we really dig, getting together? Always cause of excitement. This tune, Everything, is the second track from Maya’s forthcoming début artist album, Comfort.

Everything launches itself with shuffling percussion and growling bass tones, building the enigmatic mood as Karin’s slightly abrasive lament rings out. The track takes it’s time to accustom you to it’s mood, before gradually evolving, layering new sound and new percussion, until it busts in almost euphoric style. Both Maya and Karin are masters of creating atmosphere in their respective genres, so it’s no surprise that Everything is loaded with drama and emotion, all the while pinned down my that funky-as-hell, deep deep Maya Jane Coles House groove.

[Audio] Little Boots & Maya Jane Coles & James Ford, oh my!

Little Boots

So, we’re breaking tons of rules here. Our own rules that is. Fist up, we’re posting clips of tracks, which is a massive no-no for us. Generally, anything under 3m00s will go straight in our Inbox trash, regardless of who delivers it. Secondly, we’re using an ugly as hell Juno player. As a rule we’ll only use content delivery systems we can at least a little bit hack to make it fit the site’s aesthetics, the Juno widget is an ugly beast that’s you can’t even resize, which really messes with our 500px format. However, this release is a) amazing and b) only available on vinyl. If it remains only on vinyl, this might be your only chance to hear it, so rule breaking ahoy! But it’s a one off, do not expect us to make a habit of it, so on your bike with your 1m45s clips!

And what’s caused all this ruckus then? It’s a 12”, released yesterday, by LB, and once you’ve heard the vocals you’ll be pretty confident as to what LB stands for. The track, Superstitious Heart, is a collaboration between Little Boots, Maya Jane Coles and Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford. The track was written by The Boots, Maya and Ford with Maya stepping up on production duties. Deep and Techy sounds abound, as you would expect for this line up. Musically Maya’s influence seems to stand out, but we can also hear The Boots indulging her well documented love of 90s House. The shuffling beat and rounded bass are beautiful and hypnotic, while The Boots opts for a suitably intimate performance. The track is backed up with another Deep House tune. On Whatever Sets You Free, The Boots teams up with London producer Baunz to drop some ethereal warehouse vibes. The 12” is rounded off with Dub version of both tracks. If the tracks ever hit some kind of new fangled internet streaming service we’ll bring you a closer look, but, if you’ve got decks, this needs to be on them.
