This Holloween weekend’s set for massive things on both sides of the Atlantic. If you’re in London, there’s no better way to start your Halloween than at the legendary East Village in Shoreditch on Friday. The place kitted out GDD™ rave dungeon style, so you can expect bloodcurdling basslines as you’re treated to sets from Electric Rescue and Maya Jane Coles. We were lucky enough to catch a quick five with Maya, a rising star who at only 22 years old is sitting at number 1 on Beatport‘s Deep House charts for her monster track ‘What They Say’. Here is how it played out.
MJC: Yeah they are definitely all separate entities, but at the end of the day they are still all my productions so they all represent me, just different sides of me. If I had the time I’d probably have even more projects on the go, but three is enough for now I think! I try to balance my time evenly to manage the three projects, but the only way I can seem to keep them all going is to just go with the flow and not plan too much. Creativity and planning are two things that don’t seem to work too well together for me!
MJC: Well I’ve been producing music since I was 15 so I’ve had quite a head start compared to a lot of people, but for me there’s still a long way to go! I can’t wait for the new year, got some really exciting releases coming up and I just have a good feeling about 2011.
MJC: I always enjoy playing in Ibiza. Dogmatik, which is the first label I started releasing on, always do parties there. It’s like a real family vibe so always fun to play at.
MJC: Some damn good underground House music!
MJC: Hmm to be honest I’ve never been a massive Halloween person with all the fancy dress and stuff… I’m always too last minute to get anything together! Been to lots of good halloween raves though. Maybe this will be the nuttiest?!
