Maya Jane Coles Video Interview

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.

Maya Jane Coles Gets Her DJ-Kicks

In the space of twelve months, the 24 year old East Londoner went from a hotly tipped favorite of house music connoisseurs to, well, pretty much taking over the world. It is our extreme pleasure to announce that her first commercially available DJ mix is coming this year, in the form of a DJ-Kicks mix in April.
