Maya Jane Coles' DJ-Kicks is out this week, and she's still on an incredible run! In the short time since we last touted her accomplishments, she's been named one of five Best New Artists for April by Spin Magazine, and been honored as Artist of the Year by Beatport's staff. All in a month's work, we suppose. We managed to grab some time out of Maya's insane schedule to speak in London about the mix, and her philosophy on making music. Check out the video (directed by Giorgio Gremigni) below, and below that you can grab an exclusive new Maya production from the mix. The whole mix is available from fine retailers worldwide.
In the midst of their gargantuan DJ-Kicks World Tour with Wolf+Lamb, Soul Clap partnered up with Beatport and Mixcloud to put together a mixtape contest. Perhaps they needed some soothing sounds to ease their lonely hearts on all those plane rides? The turn-out was spectacular, with over 50 skilled selectors posting themed mixes for those times when words just aren't enough. With so many quality entries, the selection process ran a bit long, but in the end we all came to an agreement. Congrats to Davide from Sedma, whose winning mix incorporated everything from Chromeo covering The Eagles, to Michael Henderson, to Bill Cosby. Stream the winning mix below, and check out the top five finalists over at Soul Clap's Mixcloud page. We'd also like to send a valentine shout-out to all the DJs who channeled their feelings into these mixes, may your hearts not be lonely for long!
