Maya Jane Coles Comfort
Maya Jane Coles made the often-tricky transition from acclaimed house DJ to album artist feel effortless. Comfort was a fully formed aesthetic statement that owed as much to the trip-hop Coles began her career making as to the London house scene that she’s helped bring back in vogue.
As our reviewer pointed out upon its release, those expecting dance floor oriented cuts exhibited on her earlier EPs were no doubt surprised by the debut album from Maya Jane Coles. Wearing her heart unabashedly on her sleeve, with ‘Comfort’ Coles delivers a warm and richly melodic pastiche of introspective trip-hop and downtempo inspired deep house. It’s yet another example of impressive talent from an artist we can no doubt look forward to more great things from in the years to come.
