British-Japanese Producer/DJ Maya Jane Coles has amassed an astonishing level of international success and uncompromising studio credentials maintaining a uniquely focused approach; writing, producing, engineering, arranging and mixing every element of her output mastering genres from techno and house through to hip-hop, dubstep, folk, pop and beyond.
Following on from Maya’s award-winning 2015 eponymous debut LP as Nocturnal Sunshine and unlocking a true representation of her musical identity, today Maya announces the forthcoming album ‘Full Circle’ out November 1st on her own imprint I/AM/ME.
Introduced here with debut single “Pull Up” Feat. Gangsta Boo & Young M.A., Maya Jane Coles’ assured, and bold production teems with confidence; continuing her line of grungy breakbeats and uncovering new depths in hip-hop and trap-esque realms.
Opening with a cinematic and acutely pensive feel, ‘Wildfire’ features Berlin via Buenos Aires rave punk, Catnapp. A downtempo affair, the nature of Catnapp impacts with attitude over Jungle-esque breaks. Calling upon similar rave influences Queer Alt Queen, Peaches on ‘Possessed’, before the haunting and enigmatic vocals of singer-songwriter Chelou takes hold on closing track ‘Something About Drama’
Elsewhere, the world of Nocturnal Sunshine unfolds in differing forms, introducing the wraithlike yet delicate vocals of RY X on the experimental ‘Gravity’ and the soulful leaning chords of Thomas Knights on ‘Closed Eyes’. Unearthing hip-hop insights throughout, skit-style interludes ‘I’m Ready’ and ‘Lessons Of Life’ provide intelligently crafted periods of relief from the gripping intensity and breadth of the project that her huge fanbase continues to crave.
Whilst the presence of legendary Three 6 Mafia’s Gangsta Boo on ‘Ridin’ Solo’ and ‘Pull Up’ ft Young M.A. anchors the urban roots of Maya as a producer married with the dark depths of CHA$EY JONES engulf on ‘Dash’; a distinctively murky dubbed out grime cut.
As the story of Nocturnal Sunshine continues to unfold, her ‘Full Circle’ LP showcases the form and talent of an incredible producer on a limitless musical adventure of self-identity.
