Here's a release worth getting excited about! Sounding both like a deep house version of The Knife and if Tegan and Sara had made a GOOD dance album, Maya Jane Coles teams with Swedish wonderchild Karin Park for "Everything" -- the first single off her forthcoming album, Comfort.
For those of you just tuning into Maya, she's probably the raddest and the baddest chick in deep house. Her productions have consistently been spot-on and her mixes, as well as her live show, never miss a beat. With her latest album, not only did she produce and mix the whole thing, but she apparently designed the artwork as well. In the spirit of Destiny's Child, "all the women who are independent, throw your hands up at me," because you know it's not easy being that awesome in a male-dominated industry.
The track carries lyrical sensitivity: "It must be my heart you are after, it must be my lungs you are breathing from. We are not the winner or the losers, baby we are the fight" -- yet there's nothing timid about "Everything." Rather, it's about as decisive and determined as a 50-foot plunge below sea level. "Everything" wraps you in the cool dark of an emotion that inevitably requires a strong and assertive assent to the surface of feeling -- it's like, heart-core house ya'll. Also, it comes with this nifty video.
Maya's single, "Everything," is currently available via iTunes, but look out for the full album release June 28, and if you're curious about the track-listing visit Stoney Roads for the down low.
