There are very few artists who have made as much impact in such a short space of time as Maya Jane Coles. At only 23 years old she has burst not only onto the House Music scene but also into dubstep with her Nocturnal Sunshine project and live electronics with She is Danger.
"Maya has sat at the top of both the Beatport and RA charts with her previous releases on Real Tone, Hypercolour and Mobilee as well as a run of remixes for Crosstown Rebels, Defected and Leftroom. So it was a massive pleasure that Maya chose 2020Vision for her next full single release. When we discussed the project with her we agreed it was vital to put together a single that truly reflected her diverse tastes and skills" - 2020Vision
The title track Focus Now (see clip below) is a unique work that will be hard to even categorise. Reminiscent of early Mathew Johnson records, Focus Now features delicate synth sequences weaving in and out of intricate rhythms. It sounds amazing on big systems, like at Fabric, where it was road tested by Ralph Lawson at the recent 2020Vision party. It is one to drop at the right time to make a real change in mood and set direction.
