UK house star delivers the next in the long-running and widely respect Fabric series.
Following the release of her debut album Comfort last summer, Maya Jane Coles has mixed the next Fabric CD.
Frequently appearing at the sharp end of RA’s annual poll, the 26-year-old has fast established herself as one of the UK’s most popular DJs while gaining a reputation for her remixes too, adding her own slinky, intimate vibe to tracks by The xx, Bonobo, Ella Fitzgerald and many more.
“Fabric was one of the first clubs that I partied at, so it’s quite mad to have gone from being a punter to a headliner, playing the midnight set at NYE and now my own fabric mix. It feels like the club has been symbolic in the evolution on my career with a lot of good memories and milestones.” Maya Jane Coles
fabric 75 is a mix that avoids ornamental grooves in favour of fittingly percussive and musically rich simplicity; a raw house sound that is more mature and approachable than ever. The mix’s melodic qualities offer yet more wonderful insight into Maya’s music world, a rhythmic language spoken with the both the soft sonic variety and thunderous impact we’ve come to expect from Maya’s DJ performances. Wander with emotional caution, as deep chords dominate the mix and challenge the mere sight of mechanical beats.
Maya’s engaging atmospherics on fabric 75 are esoteric to say the least, and the result clearly guides the listener through her own personal and fascinating approach to dance music.
