Another full length record in on the way from Ms. Maya Jane Coles. Her 2013 album Comfort is still in heavy rotation around these parts, amazing body of work that it is; and this year we will be treated to the début album from her Dubby alter-ego Nocturnal Sunshine. The first track taken from the self-titled release, due out in May, is Take Me There.
Take Me There deserves to be played on a big rig. Driven by the subs and a shuffling beat, the track is liberally layered with modulated vocal snatches and MJC’s trademark enigmatic synths. Cole’s has always has one foot in Dub styles, from right back in the She Is Danger days, and on Take Me There she revels in her bassy influences, delivering a mesmerising Dub groove and waves of hypnotic tones. This one gets under your skin.
