Maya Jane Coles
Only 25 years old, London-based house DJ/producer Maya Jane Coles has come into her own over the past several years, winning fans on both sides of the underground/mainstream divide with a slew of twelve-inch EPs and singles on highly respected dance-music labels such as 20:20 Vision and Mobilee and remix work for the likes of Florence + the Machine and Little Dragon. Last year, Coles released the 42nd installment of the venerable DJ-Kicks mix series, which has spotlighted many of the biggest names in dance music since 1995. This year finds the producer hard at work on her as-yet-untitled debut album, which is forthcoming on her own label, I/AM/ME, and will prominently feature Coles's own vocals as well as guest appearances from the likes of trip-hop superstar Tricky, electroclash luminary Miss Kitten, and Kim Ann Foxman of Hercules & Love Affair.
