Born and bred in London, by any standards Maya has enjoyed a rather unique career. Somewhat of a rarity in today’s music world, Maya is the kind of artist whose output on any typical record of hers is multi-faceted and diverse. It is very common for her to have been involved in the top-lining and even designing the sleeve artwork too for her releases, on top of having written, produced, engineered, arranged, mixed and performed every element of the track.
Despite enjoying success at an early age, Maya’s rise is not a fortuitous one, but rather one borne out of years of hard work, music passion and dedication. What first caught her ears were the intricate musical mixtures that blended everything from dub to punk to soul to jazz to world to classical music played at home growing up. It is then that she began to pick up a few instruments herself and started to produce.
Her own musical progression since then is pretty known. She began producing hip-hop as a 15 year old, the migrating to dubbier electronic sounds a year later before finally getting to experience quality underground house in the clubs and warehouses of East London and falling in love with that side of dance music.
The rest, as they say, is history. Maya Jane Coles is one of the hottest names in house music still to this day, constantly pushing the boundaries of her own sound release after release, and DJ set after DJ set.
We are proud to welcome her to Minimal Effort: NYE 2017 as our Special Guest.
