Maya Jane Coles (I AM ME)

Over the past two years, the London-based DJ and producer Maya Jane Coles, has become one of the biggest names in house music. Her pop-infused style has so far seen releases on Hypercolour, Real Tone, 2020 Vision and others, and her next EP marks the beginning of her own endeavour. Easier To Hide consists of four tracks that prominently feature her own vocals. To emphasize her interest in multimedia, the EP’s artwork was painted by Coles herself.

2011 Coles was announced ‘Producer of the Year 2011′ by DJ Mag, named ‘Best Breakthrough DJ 2011′ by Mixmag, debuting at No. 9 on the Resident Advisor ’2011 DJ Poll’, scooping ‘Best Newcomer 2011′ at the Ibiza DJ Awards 2011. She’s also been on the cover on magazines such as ID, Dazed & Confused and Flaunt and the likes of Anja Schneider, Ellen Allien, Damon Alburn and Tricky are all queuing up to offer their praise.

British/Japanese Maya Jane Coles is a daughter of similarly eclectic parents; Maya was surrounded by a mixture of sounds from Dub to Punk to Soul and Jazz to World to Classical music around the house. Having learnt to play a few instruments and started to songwriter, production felt like the natural next step.

First producing hip-hop at 15; Maya was determined that she should be able to learn the skills to realise her own vision at every part of the process from production to performance. That’s why now, on a typical Maya Jane Coles record, Maya will have written, produced, engineered, arranged, mixed and performed every element of the track; sometimes she even vocals and designs the sleeve artwork too!

Driven by a constant urge to push herself and evolve; Maya migrated to dubbier sounds and eventually to drum’n’bass around 16; before a huge water shed moment in her life, Maya experienced good underground house! As a result, Maya started on her current journey as a house producer releasing on labels such as Dogmatik and Loco Supreme as well as chalking up DJ gigs at events like the BBC Electric Proms, Sonar and Bestival along the way.

Resident Advisor rank her as the best female DJ artist of 2012.
