Did you ever have a writing exercise back in elementary or middle school where you worked on showing, not telling? You couldn’t just write “the room was messy”, you actually had to describe the mess of the room. This is an exercise I feel would be very valuable to many (deep) house producers. Don’t tell me to love – make me feel it! Maybe it’s just me, but I feel that much of the house music I’ve come across lately just tries way too hard, or not nearly enough.  I’m either suppressing my gag reflex at how cheesy the combination of chords and vocals are, or I’m dying of boredom because there’s nothing going on.

That’s why I’m glad I’ve come across Maya Jane Coles. I hadn’t realized how much of her tunes I had heard until I went through her discography. It’s no wonder the 23 year old UK producer has been exploding in the past year: her uplifting tunes hit you emotionally hard while remaining subtle. Not an easy feat in the house world.
