Nocturnal Sunshine

Here we have our second teaser of what to expect from the forthcoming début album from Maya Jane Coles dubby alter-ego; Nocturnal Sunshine. Single number tow is called Believe and features vocal work from Chelou, who is described as an ‘elusive newcomer’. The album, self-titled, is due out toward the end of this month.

Believe is more of the ominous fantasy Dub we’ve come to expect from Maya’s Nocturnal Sunshine work. Bass heavy and loaded with heavy tones, the track draws you into it’s Stygian depths with undulating rhythms and a pairing of Maya’s trademark haunting snyths with a lead line that cuts through the mix. Chelou’s vocals drift across the track like smoke; husky, brooding and softly spoken, which fits the mood of the track perfectly. We’re quite looking forward to the long player here.

Maya Jane Coles

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.

Nocturnal Sunshine’s self-titled début album is released 25th May on digital with a vinyl release coming on Record Store Day.

Nocturnal Sunshine


Maya Jane Coles, 50% (and main production force) of the wonderful Dubstep duo She Is Danger, is ready to unveil her new project, Nocturnal Sunshine, in the form of this track ‘Dirty Secret’, a blog first right here!

The track is big, warping, bass injection, combining elements of Dubstep, chilled Electronics and Tech-House. Dark, atmospheric and erotic, ‘Dirty Secret’ drags the deep ‘Fetish House’ of the late 1990’s kicking and screaming into 2010, forcing it to submit to the bass.

Maya manages to take snippets of may different styles of Electronic music and wrap them all up with a heavy, heavy, Dub bow, as you can hear from these two other examples of her work. ‘Don’t Believe The Hype’, a solo tune, mashes more traditional Dub with a 4/4 beat resulting in a late night (early morning?) chilled carnival anthem, while back with She Is Danger, this cover of Eurythmics’ ‘Whose That Girl?’ is an absolute killer. She Is Danger’s subby Dubstep seems a perfect fit for this track!
