Undoubtedly one of the brightest and passionate talents to emerge in the last decade in electronic music, Maya Jane Coles eschews the fanfare and fuss of modern-day dance heroes, and simply puts her music and DJing craft centre stage. And under her CAYAM alias, Maya has been brewing techno leaning tracks for some time, releasing on Hypercolour back in 2014, and now a sumptuous EP for Dense & Pika’s Kneaded Pains imprint.
Minimal, shape shifting sounds comprise lead track ‘Pleasure’, impelled with urgent, rumbling bottom end, whilst ‘Jmpng’ filters a bouncing piano loop over some cut up vocals and a playful arrangement. ‘Seratonin’ signs things off in effusive style, as synth tones bend and warp around its robust rhythm for a mechanical and angular nugget.
