Neon are really looking forward to the next instalment of DJ-Kicks series from Maya Jane Coles, which is being released on April 17th by !K7 records.
Tp say Maya Jane Coles had a big year in 2011 would be an incredible understatement. In the space of twelve months, the 24 year old East Londoner went from a hotly tipped favorite of house music connoisseurs to, well, pretty much taking over the world.
“I wanted this mix to showcase my diversity,” she says. “I don’t just do one thing and I wanted it to reflect that. Most of the mixes I’ve put out there so far have been house-based, but I also produce stuff under the Nocturnal Sunshine moniker, which is more two-step/bass influenced stuff. This mix evolved into something that wasn’t just four-to-the-floor.”
See below for the full tracklist, and keep up with Maya on Facebook & Twitter for latest news, tour dates, and more than likely your first taste of her DJ-Kicks mix.

Following on from our previous post about the ‘Lonely C’ video competition – here is our favourite entry from CONTENTed films, created by Neil Dowling, an Irish writer and director and Nils Clauss a German cinematographer & director with a background in photography and graphic design.
The video shoot took place on a small farm in Jeollabuk-do province, South Korea in February 2011. The storyline was conceived in response to the song lyrics which tell of an unrequited love or a longing that can’t be satisfied or consummated.
Record label !K7 recently launched a music video creation contest for Soul Clap’s track ‘Lonely C feat. Charles Levine which features on the latest instalment of the DJ-Kicks series ‘Soul Clap / Wolf + Lamb’.
The idea behind the competition was for the label to get to interact with their fans, see some interesting interpretations of the track, and meet some exciting talent. Something they have definitely achieved.
neon will keep you up to date by posting the shortlisted entries, starting with this interpretation created and animated by Jeremy Teicher & Jeremie Duval from NYC.
