London house producer Maya Jane Coles began DJing at the age of 17, before she was old enough to enter a night club. The 24-year-old's rise to prominence has been impressive to watch, from providing remixes for everyone from Little Dragon and house legend MK, to being hailed as "breakthrough DJ of 2011" by Pete Tong, and contributing to institutions like BBC's Essential Mix and the respected DJ-Kicks series, which was released in April.
Coles took time out from working on her forthcoming debut LP to put together a pretty rad 25 minute mini-mix, exclusive to Spinner/RPM, featuring Soulphiction, Homeboy, Pig & Dan and more.
"This mix was just a personal insight into the music that inspired me at that moment," Coles explained. "I didn't want to use obvious stuff. I was lucky enough to get to use some amazing exclusives, alongside some tracks that had been released already but initially may not have got the attention they deserved."
