The rising British DJ Maya Jane Coles proves more than just her versatility on this 70-minute mix, which spans electronica, deep house, bass music and techno; she shows a unique point of view, an increasing rarity for dance-music DJs. Favoring dark atmospheres, gripping rhythms and an air of sensual melancholy, she excels at careful mixes that combine tracks into something far more than the sum of their parts; her blends are as urgent as they are subtle, and she wields even well-known tracks in ways you'd never expect. It's a refreshing reminder of true DJ artistry.
