Multi-award winning British-Japanese producer Maya Jane Coles is greeting 2015 with the debut album of her dark and dubby, bass-driven alter ego Nocturnal Sunshine. Nocturnal Sunshine exemplifies a deep commitment to her own expansive vision.
From featuring her own vocals, to being clad in artwork Maya created herself, 'Nocturnal Sunshine' is more of a cohesive artistic project and the completely self-produced album will be released on her own label, I/AM/ME.
Accompanied by a video directed by The Fashtons, the driving, shuffling ’Take Me There’ will mark the first taste of the album.
Vocal duties on the album include Maya herself on ‘It’s Alright’, whilst Chelou features on ‘Believe’. Argentina’s Catnapp lends her vocal talents to the darkness of ’The River’.
‘Nocturnal Sunshine’ is a heady journey steeped in dancefloor tradition and portrays another side of MJC.
It’s out 26 May.
