Following a "Boiler Room" with Kim Ann Foxman that reached record breaking viewer numbers and her own recent official remixes of both the XX and the legendary Ella Fitzgerald; Maya releases the limited vinyl release of her much lauded debut album. The first vinyl contains the original album tracklisting with a second vinyl featuring 5 new tracks written and produced by Maya, all previously unavailable on vinyl and 3 of which are totally exclusive to this format. Maya's debut album "Comfort" is a personal affair for Maya who produced, engineered and mixed the album at her modest home studio; playing every instrument and creating every sound including vocal duties on tracks like the lo-fi "Stranger" and the hypnotic "Dreamer". Maya also created the album's artwork. The album is reflective of Maya's broader musical influences both in and outside the electronic world with Comfort having hints and shades of many genres from house, R&B and hip hop through to dub, indie and techno. Indeed "Comfort" also features guest vocals performances from established talents such as Tricky and Miss Kittin alongside rising stars Nadine Shah and Catherine Pockson of Alpines. With 17 international magazine front covers to her name, numerous producer/DJ awards, rave album reviews, radio and video channel play listings around the world, top 10 places in the Resident Advisor DJ polls in 2011 & 2012, 30+ countries played in the last 18 months, 10 million+ You Tube views, 210,000+ Facebook fans, 55,000+ twitter followers and over 5 million plays on Soundcloud and much more to come it seems Maya's triumphant run is set to continue a little longer. 'One of the standout electronic records of 2013 no wonder she's become dance music royalty.' Mixmag 'Coles has a way of making her tracks sound massive and intimate at the same time, using reverb in a way that evokes both the expanse of an arena and the introspection of a bedroom'. Resident Advisor

Maya Jane Coles seems to be bringing something worthy of our attention
to the table with her debut solo album 'Comfort'. Her credentials as
both a DJ and producer underpin a collection of twelve tracks whose
spirit wobbles along a continuum in which we catch glimpses of trip-hop,
dub and stripped-down techno. She had recruited some incongrouous vocal
collaborators to the project who add variety and interest to the mix.
Ms Coles own voice is pleasant but insubstantial; a soft, breathy instrument
which is nonetheless ideally suited to the job despite it's obvious limitations.
'Easier To Hide' is a splendid little groove, rattling along on a low-hung
bass line (just a little bit dirty in the nicest possible way); Tricky joins
the party on 'Wait For You', a ghostly presence muttering away in the heart
of a dark machine; Nadine Shah, channeling Grace Jones, turns in a fruity
performance on 'Blame', which, with its shuffling beats and jangly guitar might
sound perfectly at home in a David Lynch movie and on the bouncy 'Take A Ride'
Miss Kitten does what Miss Kitten is wont to do with her usual libidinous panache.
Along with Emika's new album 'DVA' one of the best outings in the genre this year.
The production is impressive; not "Bonobo - The North Borders" impressive but impressive.
I think Maya Jane Coles' vocals are overshadowed by the guest appearances on the album as her voice is more than capable of holding it's own.
I'd find it hard to sub-categorise this album into something more particular than electronic, but "genreless" albums are often the best.
Play front to back without touching the mouse/keyboard/hi-fi/remote control.
