Maya Jane Coles’s rise has been slow and steady: In 2008 and ’09 she released 12-inches on U.K.’s Dogmatik, then came her “What You Know” EP on Real Tone, and soon she’d caught the attention of publications like DJ Mag and Resident
Advisor. By 2012, her live sets were favorites at large-scale festivals, such as Winter Music
Conference and Electric Zoo, and her contribution to the DJ-Kicks series was one of the
year’s best mixes, leaving behind the dubstep of her Nocturnal Sunshine alias to explore
and advance the worlds of house and techno. Tonight, catch her play the Verboten party
at the Highline Ballroom.
