Many ultra-talented female DJs have made their presence known (defying the illusive stigma of females don’t DJ,) but a favorite of many is the enigmatic Maya Jane Coles. Throughout the years she has proven she has the DJ skills and production prowess to run with the big guys, and her delicate sensitivity to track selection makes her second Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 a euphoric experience.
Shifting from The Poet’s slow-grooving “Rain On April” (Yves Le Groove Mix) to the sexy allure of Joe Stawarz’s “Suiteb,” Maya creates a one-of-a-kind experience for the listener. Normally one would be prompted to jump to their favorite sections in a mix, but this Essential Mix is a journey through an exotic forest.
Maya knows what she’s doing, and she knows how to entice you. In my opinion, she is the musical counterpart of Nicolas Jaar; both know how to create a story in their mixes.
I say no more, I’ll let the music talk. Close your eyes and submerge into the euphoric house and electronic ripples of Maya Jane Coles’ BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.
