Producer Maya Jane Coles has been named as best ‘Newcomer’ at the Ibiza DJ Awards this week.
Maya Jane Coles on public vote beat other dj dignataries like Nina Kraviz, Josif and Avicii to the title. Other winners on the night which was held at Ibiza’s Pacha club included Carl Cox, 2Manydjs and Nightmares on Wax.
Not one to fall victim to the pitfalls of being one of the scenes ‘buzz names’; since key release on Mobilee and 2020Vision including the luscious “Humming Bird EP, Maya has built on her flourishing production reputation with a slew of dj gigs across Europe, North America and Asia taking in clubs like London’s Fabric, Batofar and Watergate as well as festivals such as Glastonbury 2011, Exit and Germany’s Awake Festival amongst others having previously played at Sonar, Bestival and the BBC Electric Proms.
Maya recently completed her highly acclaimed debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 and from smashing the main room at Amnesia through to delighting the crowds at Space alongside the like of Nick Curly and Jamie Jones its easy to understand why.
After recent remixes of the likes of Tricky, Little Dragon and DJ T; Maya’s new artist release is a forthcoming EP on Hypercolour due for release this November.
Currently in development is Maya’s first full length album. Her current aural diet consists of the cutting edge of tech and deep house and everything from Little Dragon and Fourt Tet through to Warpaint and the XX, So what can we expect from Maya’s debut? Only one thing is for sure; it’s going to be an electronic odyssey with Maya firmly at the helm; and there’s a rather good chance that when it lands, the name ‘Maya Jane Coles’ is going to be around for a very, very long time to come…
