Maya Jane Coles of She Is Danger presents new dubstep project
Look at that face. Add the words DJ and dubstep. Then play the songs. Listen for the sounds of fanboys (and girls yeah?) fainting...
I'll add more later but check the press first:
"Maya Janee Coles - unveils new dubstep project....
London based, British/Japanese producer Maya Jane Coles - http://www.myspace.com/mayajanecoles is the main production force behind female dub meets electronica act, She is Danger - http://www.myspace.com/sheisdangermusic and is ready to unveil her newest creation - Nocturnal Sunshine - http://www.myspace.com/nocturnalsunshinemusic - a dubstep project with elements of electronica, dub and tech house included with very interesting developments in the not too distant future....
Musical peers ranging from Massive Attack, The Orb, Delphic, Steve Bug, Sister Bliss, Doorly and Caspa count themselves as fans of her work and woman aren't suppose to be able to produce/engineer/write, right? Wrong - or so it would now appear and to prove she's versatile her prodcutions have placed top 10 in both the tech house and dubstep charts on Beatport!
Maya's official credits as a remixer under her varied monikers includes artists such as Massive Attack, Groove Armada, MSTRKRFT, Ellie Goulding and Todd Terry amongst others, not bad for a 23 year old! With her originals and remixes being played on BBC Radio 1 by the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Mary Anne Hobbs, as well as international spins and recognition by stations such as KCRW Stateside and many more across Europe, Asia and Australasia.
Additional Maya's remixes have won plaudits such as NME Radio 'Single of the week', NME Daily Download, Best of Myspace, Q Magazine 'Track of the Day' and RCRDLBL 'Track of the Day' with her 'She is Danger remix' of Massive Attack's 'Girl, I Love You' alongside band member Lena Cullen being included on the deluxe version of 'Heligoland'.
Maya continues to perform in She is Danger supporting Crystal Fighters, Theopolius London and The Orb as well as DJing under the 'Maya Jane Coles' playing parties stretching from Tokyo to Berlin to Barcelona with Sonar, Bestival, BBC Electric Proms and Fabric's sister club Matter just a few of her scalps."
Here's a little buffet of all the different irons Miss Coles has in the fire...
Nocturnal Sunshine ft Cardamis - "Dirty Secret"
Maya Jane Coles - "Don't Believe The Hype (Edit)"
She Is Danger - "Who's That Girl (Eurythmics Cover)"
I knew She Is Danger was off the hook... but I mean... this girl has superstar written on her face :)
