Multi-award winning producer and deejay Maya Jane Coles releases her first EP this December, Easier To Hide. A truly diverse release comprising of four original tracks all written, produced, played, vocalled, engineered and mixed by Maya; to give just a taste of what’s lies in store from her forthcoming debut album; scheduled for an early Spring 2013 release.
Over the course of the last 18 months Maya has seen her star rise phenomenally. Now highly sought as both a producer and a deejay; Maya has performed in over 30 countries, won multiple awards, had millions of YouTube views, a million plus spins on Soundcloud, gained more than a 100,000 Facebook fans, and graced around a dozen magazine covers and pages.
Somewhere amongst the international studio work, festivals and clubs shows; Maya‘s also found the time to release her first ever compilation through K7 as part of the DJ Kicks Mix series. The mix and landed to much critical acclaim garnering award nominations and is proving to be one of the most successful selling releases in the series so far. We remember one of the tracks, Not Listening.
Title track Easier To Hide is taken from Maya‘s coming debut album, the seducer track Easier To Hide shows Maya‘s innate ability to create hooks laden house and electronica; the guitar-driven subtle stomper Over is poles apart from the sparse, dub lament of Back to Square One whilst Maya ventures into deeper waters with Run With The Wild. We know a sample of Cole‘s new work by the hand of Marco Deejay Records.
Indeed this release serves only to further illustrate just how broad Maya‘s musical palette is but with a sound and sensibility that is unmistakably threads through the package tying the work into one well rounded whole. The Easier to Hide EP also marks the first release from Maya Jane Coles own label I Am Me, and brings an extra personal touch, Maya‘s also designed the artwork for the EP.
